In an interview with Glamour, Cuthbert is identified as a 30-something model and actress from Toronto but now living in Los Angeles. Her water work lit a fire: a spokesperson for Twitter reports there were more than 50,000 tweets about Cuthbert Sunday night.

Cuthbert, who has been modeling and doing commercial acting for the last 12 years, says she's gotten a lot of positive feedback and even some job interviews in the wake of her viral fame.

It was unknown whether Fiji paid Cuthbert a bonus for the countless impressions, or "earned media" in marketing parlance, that she so deftly delivered. Clad in a tiered blue gown and holding onto a tray with bottles of the high-end aqua, the former social worker seemed to find her way into the background of every celebrity photo - the ultimate A-list photobombs!

So, who is this meme-worthy model? As previously reported, Cuthbert used to work in Toronto as a social worker, but has since moved to Los Angeles to pursue a full-time modelling career.

After her stint as the Fiji Water Girl went viral, Canadian band Arkells took the time to gift us with a reminder that she was once the shining star of their music video.

Sure enough, while she was there for the celebrities, Cuthbert became a minor celebrity herself.

"Fiji Water woman knows she deserves to be in the shot". She was everywhere, and you could only wish for this level of commitment from your team. "I do love a good meme, so I think it's incredibly ironic and amusing that I'm one now", she told the glossy. In the caption, she wrote, "Not the worst way to spend a Sunday..." "The first meme of 2019, apparently! I feel like I've always been a person that people feel comfortable sharing their stories with, and being on set can be kind of an intimate experience", Cuthbert said.

She added that a report that alleged she said the photobombing moves were "calculated" was not true. At press time, she has 189,000 followers-more than 256 percent increase.
