IN CONVERSATION|JACK HURRELL
Name|Jack Charles Hurrell
How did you get discovered?
I sent my pictures to Ford NYC about a month ago, and they simply flew me out here last week!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Writing a fantasy novel and working in a cafe around my home town.
People would be surprised to know that I...
was in the running for a part in the latest Star Wars movie, coming out soon. I had to act like Han Solo.
What's your latest obsession?
My posture, all the time! I think it's a holdover from my ballet instructor, she was obsessed with perfect posture!
Your most prize possession?
Something small, it's an old polaroid picture of my mother when she was 21. I always loved that pic of her. She was so beautiful.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Billy Elliot. He (The character) is so inspiring to me, especially when I was a kid.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
My mum as I left to go to NYC, five days ago...
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Considerate, Personable and Memorable
Describe your personal style:
Relaxed and sharp, all at the same time!
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Lapland in Finland! I met Santa there when I was a kid!
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Fight Club—Scene: Brad Pitt's character is giving the rules of fight club
Your favorite sport:
Sport: Skateboarding—it's an art form, more than just a sport!
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Winchester, England—Walking with my dog and see the country side, and maybe pop in the local pub for a pint! :)
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
Topical satire comedy show to the theme of Chariots of Fire. (The opening sequence would be slowly panning shots of me and the guest comic for their week's episode.)
Crazies thing you ever done:
Cliff diving probably! Only because I dove in first and landed feet first (which really hurts if you are a guy because the water hits you in the balls really hard!) It was still fun despite the pain!
Your wish for the remainder of 2015?
Land a Burberry Campaign! Would be an honor since I am British!
Clothing: Polka dotted shirt by Nick Graham; plaid shirt by ASOS; all other clothing, Jack 's own.
