MR. THOMPSON|KEVIN THOMPSON













———————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|KEVIN THOMPSON

Name|Kevin Thompson
Age|21
Hometown|Armonk, New York

How did you get discovered?
I went to a bunch of open calls about a year ago. I just took a chance with a new career and it stuck!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was studying mathematics and Italian at a Connecticut college.
People would be surprised to know that I...
am crazy flexible and had my car totaled by a full grown male moose but was totally unscathed!
What's your latest obsession?
Amy Winehouse and The Weeknd's Starboy
Your most prize possession?
My great uncle who is a Monsignor got this ruby red glass egg in the USSR a while back that was a gift for my great aunt. I loved it as a child, when she passed, I kept it as a momento and it goes wherever  I go.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
John Lennon was a big hero of mine. I liked the idea of spreading love and peace no matter what anyone has to say about it. I liked how he was always himself.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
This morning to my girlfriend, Alex.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Blunt, Calm and Quiet
Describe your personal style:
Loose, flowy...I like wearing big t-shirts with a jacket, jeans, black Converse sneakers. I like to wrap the shoe laces around my ankles once before I tie them.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Okavenge Delta, Botswana
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Secret Window—Scene: I like when Johnny Depp starts to go crazy and talk to himself.
Your favorite sport:
Sport: Basketball
Team: The Nets
Players: Jason Kidd and Vince Carter
My most embarrassing moment:
In middle school, my prankster friend pull down my pants in the middle of the room and my underwear went down as well!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your opening theme song?
The show would be called Seven Minutes in Heaven with Kevin. It will be an interview type of show where the interviewer changes but I am always the one being interviewed. Theme song would be some instrumental jazz song my roommate Jon and I have been wanting to compose for quite some time.
My motto in life:
Be true to yourself and trust who you are. Lookout for everyone along the way—Not just the ones you love.
Craziest thing you ever done:
I am pretty scared of heights bit I surprised my girlfriend with skydiving when she visited me from Maine for the first time.
Who would you like to meet through modeling?
I am torn between the older stars and new. I love to listen and get advice from others so I think it would be interesting to meet the Hadid girls or Kate Moss.
