IN CONVERSATION|ADAM WATT
Name|Adam George Watt
Hometown|South East London, England
How did you get discovered?
I was walking in Oxford Street and noticed a small gentlemen following me, I eventually asked him what he wanted and he gave me his card and said I should model.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was working night shifts at a supermarket and also making coffee in various cafes around London.
People would be surprised to know that I...
have a dream of opening up my own cafe/bar somewhere in London and even make it 24 hours! If that were possible. I love the idea of being able to risk my own savings and really work for something. I believe in and have a passion for.
What's your latest obsession?
Lately, I have had a strong desire to join a band here in NYC. I have recently contacted a band who wanted a British lead singer. So I am hoping to start rock and rolling soon! Come see me play in a pub soon in NYC!
Your most prize possession?
I actually have a reindeer teddy bear that I have had since I was six. He has been with me my entire childhood growing up and even though he smells strange, he will always have my back.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
Anyone who I could draw inspiration from or learn from. Obviously my family has moulded my personality and made me the person I am today. But I always looked up to my brother, he definitely has had a influence on my style and attitude.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
Last night to my annoyingly beautiful girlfriend!
