Six weeks ago, Hannah Donker was best known for a couple of Canadian beauty ads.
Now, she’s been viewed more than 46 million times on YouTube as the mysterious, levitating love interest in the music video for The Weeknd’s “Secrets,” in which she is pursued through what looks like a futuristic hotel.
