-Hello Tomas, I'm flattered you accepted to be
interviewed for CoverMen Mag!, to start this interview
off, please give me some background information.
Everyone...I'm from a small city in Czech Republic
called Dobrany it's close by the bigger city Pilsen,
I live in LA now trying to break out in music industry,
I've played soccer for 9 years so my high school
was specialized for sports.... I did half year of college
but I had to quit because of traveling for modeling
.but I read a lot and try to self educate myself
-Who discovered you and convinced you to become a model
and how old were you at the time?
was 16 there was a school for models and me and my friend
just knew it was gonna be full of chics so we signed
up, luckily they did the first test shooting for us but
I didn't go to Prague to sign with an agency till I was
18...so I chose to do it nobody had to convince me.
-Do you remember your first photo shoot as a model? How
did you feel during it?
Pretty good the photographer
was super cool, she was like 28 years old funky lesbian
which can really work with Photoshop haha so the
result was quite good, I still have her shots. :-)
-Who was your first major runway show for?
What was the feeling before and after the show?
it was in Milan in 06 ... I did fitting for D&G
(not the fitting for the show but they just wanna try
on me the clothes for the shows) after Domenico Dolce
appeared and started to organize things in the showroom,
started to talk to him a little bit, with my broken
English and his Italian accent, it would be
funny to listen to it, but anyway he told me I should
be a news reporter cause I had so many questions
:-) but after he asked me if I was doing show the next
day, I said no so he just dog out one outfit and said
: "Well, No you will" haha the show
was in the morning call time 9 am and I was done
by 11.30. Fashion week is really fast, I just remember
that there was huge breakfast and I've got packed
as fuck... haha and there were cool lap dancers
dancing in background....everything was very professional....feeling
after was very good cause I always wanted to do D&G
or Armani, I am still waiting for second one :-)
-I know you are a very successful and busy model, can
you share with me some of your recent and upcoming assignments?
I did the Gap campaign last year then really good contract
for tvc for Coca-Cola so those were 2 big things for my
last year (have to thank to DNA in NYC they're doing
job) then I went to Japan for a while (where
btw I've met Pierre from your web page, great friend and
musician also we had so much fun together) and then
I've decided to come here to LA so I've missed campaign
season in NYC but no regrets, they will come. :-)
-What are some of your professional goals as a model?
What kind of campaigns would you like to do?
fragrance campaign would be nice and doing Dolce or
CK or Armani would be the top for me. :-)
-If you decided to stop modeling today, what other career
would you take up? Have you ever considered getting
Haha it's funny you asked me
I did acting classes for a month here in LA 5 times
per week 3 hours per day but I've decided to jump out
of that movie circus ... you always depend on someone
opinion and I have enough of this in modeling so right
now I'm looking for new challenges like music (taking singing lessons,
playguitar, learning piano) and
business (audio books, books, table games) so my life
is gonna go towards those two directions :-)
-Turning to some personal questions, how would you describe
yourself? If you had to use few words to describe your
personality, which adjectives would you use?
ambitious, jealous, crazy, thoughtful, I donno if this is
an adjective but I just love people which can make other
people laugh although they know that they will
look ridiculous and they still go for it, so I'm
trying to be one of them.... :-)
-What do you think are the features you have that attract
other people the most?
My girlfriend said
I have nice ass haha, but I guess it's my face,
and also my body I hope:-)
-I am sure you travel a
lot and you have already visited
many countries, which of them would you like to
live in at least for a certain period of time? Why?
US ...NYC, LA, Miami all great locations and then Tokyo is
crazy fun as well :-) America is still the best I believe,
it's just the people here and they always have everything
what you're looking for let's say in the shop but they just
not have it they have like 10 different kind of it,
smell, color form ....it's funny if it's for you like
for me it's difficult to decide between two things
Tomas for taking the time to reply to my questions,
it was a gift to me and my readers!
Edo, anytime. :-)
