IN CONVERSATION|ANTON WORMANN

Name|Anton Wormann
Age|24
Hometown|Stockholm, Sweden

How did you get discovered?
I was scouted twice before my mother agent @nischmanagement  finally convinced me. I was 19 at the time and just finished high school. Prior to being with Nisch, another agency asked me to see them and so I went, they took some snaps and it turned out they didn't want to sign me. I was 17 at the time, I explained this situation to my now mother agency and he said he would sign me immediately. Pretty soon after that, I started working. It is now one and a half years later and I am still here...
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was studying and working in a fancy deli in Stockholm. I was cutting cold cuts and I really enjoyed my colleagues and the job. I kept working there for a long time. My deli boss was very understanding knowing that I was a model so he often let me go when I need to do last minute castings and travels.
People would be surprised to know that I...
was a rapper once, known as Lil-Anton!
What's your latest obsession?
Travel and get to meet new friends

A necklace I got from my mum. It's a thin gold chain.
