Sebastian, I'm flattered you accepted to be interviewed
for my online mag, to start this interview off, please
give me some background information such as your
hometown, your family, your education, where you live
now and anything else you consider interesting
man. Impressive web site! Thanks again for inviting
me to take part. Here's my attempt to sound cool. Sorry
about the wait.
Interesting?! I can't
say my life has been interesting but here goes
in Michigan to an American father and a German mother
in 87 with a big head which earned me the name 'big
head Seb' in school. Moved to Bönn in Germany for a
year and a half at 9 for my dads work, learned little
German by the time we moved to Essex England which was...
Different. After 3.5 years and a year in boarding school,
the outskirts of Birmingham were home since except traveling
for half a year in central America and LA (where I was
scouted), and university in Sheffield studying business.
Uni was nice but I'm happy to be home. Although I've
hardly been home for a year since modeling started to
kick off. Now I have to get extra pages for my passport
and I live out of a suitcase.
Something i consider
interesting? 1. When a whip cracks. Its the tip of the
whip moving 880mph cracking the sound barrier 2. 2/3
of all the people who have ever lived as long as 65
are alive today. Facts are always interesting. That's
-What do you remember about your
school days, did you have many friends and what
was your favorite subject?
Ahh the school
days...When I was young I had a big head, I was the
smallest kid in my grade, I had white blonde hair, am
half American half German in Essex and sucked at school
and sports making me not many peoples friend. Then one
day I decided to start thinking and play basketball
learn to wrestle pay attention in class and make money
sellin candy (quite profitably). K god ok grade and
never got bullied again after putting the biggest bully
in a head lock and makin him squeal. Harsh but it worked.
After that I had fun in school and made loads of friends.
- Let's look back at how you started
modeling, tell me about how you got discovered.
was discovered by a cool cat named Scott who was a buddy
of mine that I met staying at a hostel in LA during
my travels. He saw something in my so called his friends
to call their friends to ask there people to get me
an appointment at Ford in Hollywood. Ford said theyd
give me shot but I had to decline as I started uni in
4 days in England. They recommended I check out Premier
in London when I get a chance. I finally did and here
I am. It was a slow start but business is booming now.
The whole ordeal was very lucky for me.
me about your first photo shoot, did you feel
comfortable in front of the camera?
photoshops was a new faces editorial for Attitude magazine.
I had no idea what I was doing I was freezing Calder
wearing just a kilt standing on a roof in the peripheral
of a dozen builders. After about 20 minutes, I thought
to think about something to affect the look they were
asking for. I pretended I lost my wallet and that there
was sun in my eyes. Tue photographer said that's it!
I discovered my look and loosened up. I've been comfortable
in front of a camera ever since.
kind of assignments, as a model, do you prefer? (photoshoot
for campaigns and ads, fashion shows, Tv commercial
and so on...)
I'd have to say that even tho
they don't pay (which sucks), I enjoy editorials because
they leave u free to do what u want. Choose your own
poses and expressions, ect. It's also more personal
as u can express yourself where a show, the models are
mostly hired to all look the same and do the same thing
and in a campaign the model is directed to perform a
very specific task. Tv adverts I have not done yet but
will soon, mark my word. Something funny I hope like
-Your profile on models.com
is amazing, though you are very young, you are a real
top model, did you expect such a great success?
sir I did not. It's a constant surprise for me to have
gotten where I am and to still be in the game. It's
such a touch in go industry which the best of psychologists
would struggle to explain. It's a wonder. Now that I'm
here and while I still am, I am to make a big impact.
Might as well aye?
-How would you describe
your way to have fun, what do you like to do in your
Fun! Loads of stuff. All kinds
of Games, hacky sack, jokes, watching stuff. Laughing,
partying, dancing, eating loads, meeting characters
and hearing there stories anything really. Haven't been
paint balling in ages, that my friend, is fun. I think
the next funnest thing will be the water jet-pack
you have a personal motto that sums up your thoughts
about life in a sentence?
kind of music do you like best? What's your current
Electro, dub step, house,
breaks, etc. Anything with a good bass line. Instruments
trump voice's. Favorite song - Pon de floor-Major Lazier.
again Sebastian for taking the time to reply to my questions,
it was a gift to me and my readers!
let me know if there's anything else I can do for you!
