Tzur, 45, works alongside New York actor John Di Domenico, who impersonates Trump, according to the Miami Herald.
For her $3,000 fee, plus expenses, interested parties can hire her and Domenico to parade around their events. The model told the Miami Herald she’s been hired eight times so far to play the first lady.
“It’s not really a second career,” Tzur told the Miami Herald. “It’s an extension of my existing career.”
The model and actress added she didn’t think she looked like the first lady until a photographer dressed her up as Melania Trump one day. She said she is a fan of the first lady’s, though she’s never met her.
“I feel great admiration for both of them,” Tzur told the newspaper. “That makes my job ever better.”
Tzur grew up in Tel Aviv and moved to the United States after she received a scholarship to the New York City Ballet Arts School, according to her website.
She has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Viva Variety” and had a guest appearance on “30 Rock,” where she Jack Donaghy’s secretary. She also made appearances in the movies “The Devil Wears Prada” and “The Stepford Wives.”
