Say hello to your No. 4 Rookie...

Yu Tsai/SI

Nothing about Kelly Rohrbach's pictures give it away, so we will. Shooting the 2015 SI Swimsuit Issue was the 25-year old Greenwich, Conn. native's first-ever professional modeling shoot. [Cue sound of record screeching to a halt.] Indeed, Kelly has taken the path less traveled en route to modeling stardom, becoming an actress first.

I needed an arts class when I was a sophomore in college, so my coach suggested acting, because it’s supposedly an easy ‘A.’ I loved it, and knew immediately that this was what I wanted to do, so I stopped golf to act full time. After college I went straight out to LA. It went really well, got on the acting circuit quickly with a lot of recurring guest roles on TV. 

DYK: Kelly attended Georgetown University where she played golf.

Eager for more Kelly? Find her on Twitter, Instagram and IMDB, and come back tomorrow at 9 a.m. ET for our next Rookie Reveal.
