JTC RECOMMENDS: OSCAR SMITH|25 MODEL MANAGEMENT (LONDON)































————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|OSCAR SMITH

Name|Oscar Smith
Age|18
Hometown|Cheddar, Somerset

How did you get discovered?
I was first scouted at Glastonbury when I was 16/17 but I never really followed it up. However, about a year ago I was approached in a bar in Bristol when I was out with my girlfriend.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was at 6th form studying for a levels. I now go to university in Manchester, had a great first year. 
People would be surprised to know that I...
live in Cheddar, a small village named after the cheese. It's famous for producing. Seems to surprise people when I tell them.
What's your latest obsession?
Well, my dad's obsessed with vinyl at the moment, so it's kind of inducing a slight obsession on me. I am into some oldish bands from Manchester at the moment like The Smiths and The Stone Roses. Also been binge watching Game Of Thrones with my 'little' brother and avocados!
Your most prize possession?
Probably my guitar, had it since I first really started to play. I need to get back into it though.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I admired musicians. I loved Jimi Hendrix when I was obsessed with playing guitar, also bands like Kings of Leon and Oasis. I also found listening to my granddad interesting. I've got older brothers so I may have looked up to them when I was a little younger.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
Probably the other day to my girlfriend or one of my mates.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Laid back, Sociable, I dunno tall
Describe your personal style:
Quite laid back, baggy t-shirts, baggy  jeans—I like being comfy. Most of the time, I make minimal effort, to be honest, if I had the choice, I'd wear joggers everyday!
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Probably when I went on a holiday with my family to Lake Garda in Italy. Me and my brothers loved swimming and kayaking in the lake, we also visited Venice and Verona. The food was incredible and I've never seen so many choices of ice cream.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
It is so hard to pick my favorite film. I've probably got about 10 but I loved the scene in the movie Drive.
Scene: It's the scene in the elevator when Ryan Gosling's character realize the guy stood next to him is trying to kill him. So he kisses Carey Mulligan's character, which is filmed in a kind of silence, before killing the guy next to him in a pretty graphic way. I think the scene sums up the movie perfectly, the kind of romantic first half and violent dark second half. The soundtrack is also pretty cool!
Your favorite sport:
Sport: Soccer (Football)
Team: Spurs
Player: I used to love Garth Bale before we sold him, still follow him at Madrid. But at the moment I like Harry Kane or Dele Ali, both young English players who are showing a lot of promise for us, unless we sell them of course!
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?
Cheddar, Somerset—There are loads of different walks up Cheddar, gorge the view at the top of the hills or gorge of Somerset is worth the trek. If not, there are a few pubs. That's about it really!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
Some sort of comedy show, probably the best TV entertainment. Theme song: I Am The Resurrection by The Stone Roses (Random choice)
Craziest thing you ever done:
When I was quite young, me and my brothers used to pretend sticks were swords and wack each other with them. It was actually fairly brutal. Looking back, I think that's quite crazy!
Your wish for the remainder of 2016?
Continuing enjoying university, meeting new people up there. I want to work more as well. Get some money save up for festivals next year and holidays. I also hope for the modeling to continue as well.
