We had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Wonderland favourite O’shea Robertson from Select talking card tricks, mango juice and getting scouted by Ash Stymest.
Hometown: I was fostered so moved around a lot as a kid from North London to many different places in South London. I stayed with my foster family for eight years so they are really like my family.
I was scouted: Three years ago. I had just finished my exams and was on a bus in Croydon where I bumped into Ash Stymest who gave me a card for his agency and told me to give them a call.
Favourite childhood memory: Probably skateboarding down the hills and roads where I lived with my best friend. We used to do jumps and compete who could stay on their board the longest.
Where is home: It’s now North West London.
Favourite London hangout: The Abbey Tavern, Kentish Town and I hang out at my agency a lot as it’s a good way to get jobs!
Dream destination: Tokyo because I love technology.
Favourite food: Eggy bread, bacon and syrup.
Dream dinner date: Martin Luther King or Obama.
Hobbies: Skateboarding, table tennis and card magic.
Current obsession: Mango juice.
Guilty pleasure: Taylor Swift.
Favourite movie: Drive, everything about it is perfect.
Least favourite movie: Probably the new Robin Hood with Russell Crowe.
Favourite superhero: Spiderman or The Hulk.
First gig: You Me at 6 at Brixton Academy about five years ago. Reading 2010 was good too as Blink 182 was headlining.
Music I like: Everything really, my favourites are metal, hip hop, rock and dub step.
Favourite song: Frank Ocean’s Thinking About You.
Most treasured possession: My playing cards.
Last thing I bought: A Stella.
Career highlight so far: Walking for Calvin Klein.
Future plans: I live for now as that’s the nature of the job. Things change so quickly anything could happen!
Dream job: To be an architect but I think this is also pretty close to a dream job. You get to travel loads, can get paid well and seeing the shoots you’ve been part of feels like a big achievement.
Happiest moment: Getting my own place.
Myself in three words: Cool, happy and tall.
