Most people have never heard of Kimbra Hickey, but millions of people all over the world have seen her hands. She’s the hand model holding the red apple on the iconic cover of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, and she’s eager for her fifteen minutes of fame.

In an interview with the New York Post, Hickey says that she’s lobbying for a role in Breaking Dawn, the fourth movie in the Twilight Saga. “If I could get a little background part, it would be fantastic,” she said, “even if they only wanted my hands in it.”

The model/massage therapist connects with fans on the Twilight convention circuit where she sells apple scented hand lotion. Hickey has also been known to go up to strangers on the subway and at Barnes & Noble and introduce herself. She carries a red Gala apple in her purse just for such occasions. Even she admits that it’s a little goofy, but she tells the New York Post that “It was too big of a deal just to let it be.”
