If asked you to show some tension in pose, or dramatic facial expression, I'm unconvinced you could do it.
That said, I'll sometimes consider for a test someone with the right look who also has an apparent interest in the dark and/or weird. Your look, actually you remind me of someone I've worked with a few times. But I don't see anything bordering apparent interest in the subjects I tend to shoot.
edit: This statement is a little off-putting: " Modeling is a hobby for me. While I don't plan on getting serious about it, I do want to have fun with it =]"

Yep. You've got a great sense of poise with appropriate expressions, coupled with a creative, dramatic flare that would probably fit well with my work. I like your entire port, though this one is just mesmerizing:
While the answer is yes, I might hesitate on certain projects that require aggressive expressions. Sometimes the concept needs anger, a good "fuck you and die" war cry. Can you do it? If it calls for terror, what then? You describe yourself as laid back, and I see that in your poise and expressive range, but sometimes that's not the right fit. Maybe that's not a big obstacle for you, though.
... but it's so placid and lacking the drama and tension of the rest of your port. Intended, I'm sure, but imagine a scene where you bring the same motion and poise as you demonstrate elsewhere. This image, while ok on its own, is mildly boring by comparison; I don't think it shows what you are evidently capable of doing. Maybe you're more comfortable in front of the lens nude than with an outfit. I see no reason to believe you couldn't rock a theme with a costume or outfit, though.
While your port is convincing enough, it's good that you throw into your profile that bit about being an actress. That usually tells me I won't have to direct too much in terms of expression and concept.
On the subject of expression, it's a critical point. I think you're capable of it; your port and credited photos imply it. Maybe a little more subtly than one might first catch on. Maybe more explicit range is in order? There have been a few occasions where I needed the model to jump, hit a pose, and do a certain expression. What is your facial expression here?
To be clear, I *love* the picture as it is. It demonstrates your form beautifully. But I'm also curious, for example, just how pissed off, or even ecstatic, can you look while doing that? The only negative here is that I expect we would have to make several attempts at an expression to match pose and the imagined context. But, again, I see no reason to believe you can't do it.
So, yes, tentacles for you. Or something like that.
