Here’s what the 29-year-old model and actor had to share with the mag:
On being the next Jamie Dornan: “Jamie Dornan as a role model. He’s flourishing in the acting world, and if I could do half as well as he has I’d be more than happy! I would love to play that kind of character [a sadistic killer ] it would be just the kind of thing I’d love to do. I really like dark independent films. But right now, I would love the opportunity to take on any role. I actually went up for Jamie’s role of Christian Grey. The audition was pretty tame to be honest, but it was a great experience for me. It’s such a huge project and I’d be lying to say I wouldn’t have loved to have got the role. But I think Jamie is perfect for it and I can’t wait to see it.”
On his secret boy band years in Twen2y4se7en: “Just after school I was going to sign with a professional rugby team, and it was all ready to go. A mate of mine was a great singer who was putting together a boy band who already had a record deal with an independent label. One of the guys dropped out and I took his place. I thought if I was ever going to give it a go it was then. And I had a great time; one of the best years of my life. I had three great mates who I am still friends with now. One’s a doctor now and two of them are still in the music industry. It was such a great experience. We even got to tour with Westlife! Having four guys in an arena full of girls; they’re gonna scream and scream away. It was quite terrifying in a way. I went to an all boys school so when I was confronted by these screaming girls, throwing things at you, I was taken aback. It was quite daunting. I was unaware as to what to expect but over time I got used to it.”
