Pretty boy Jace Moody from Next talks to us about biscuit dunking and Jessica Alba.
I was scouted: At the end of 2011. A family friend put me in touch with Next, I went to see them and they took me on.
Hobbies: Just normal stuff. I was a semi-pro footballer back home but don’t play as much now, just have the odd kick around. I also like going for a pint at the pub with my mates.
Current obsession: Twitter, I don’t even realise it but I check it all the time!
Pet peeve: Rude people.
Fear: I don’t really like heights or flying.
Guilty pleasure: Sweets, chocolate and biscuits. If I open a packet, that’s it, I eat them all. Especially when I dunk them in my tea.
Last lie I told: Was probably an excuse to get me out of doing something
Dream job: I would like to have my own business, which will hopefully get going this year.
Favourite childhood memory: Probably playtime in primary school when you were allowed to go on the grass and it didn’t matter if you got your trousers dirty because it was Friday.
Home is: Chelsea at the moment, but home home is up North.
Favourite London hang out: Central London, I meet a lot of friends around there after castings.
Favourite food: Italian. I love bread and pasta, when I was in Milan I literally ate it all day every day.
Dream dinner date: Jessica Alba. I was working at a Ferragamo dinner and she was there. She was just as amazing in real life which was really nice as sometimes when you actually meet someone famous they can be a disappointment.
Favourite movie: Catch Me If you Can.
Least favourite movie: The only film I’ve ever walked out of was Gran Torino.
Favourite cartoon: The Jetsons,
Favourite Superhero: Clark Kent/ Superman, he has good hair and I like that he is also a normal guy.
First gig: Oasis at Heaton Park.
Music I like: Lots of different things. Jay-Z, Drake, Michael Buble. On the way here I was listening to Radio 1’s Live Lounge album.
Most treasured possession: My phone.
Last thing I bought: A newspaper.
Career Highlight: Probably the first time I did a show. It’s a weird feeling because everyone is watching you, I’d never thought so much about walking in a straight line!
Future plans: To keep modelling and also figure out something I can do more long term that I can focus on. In the far far future I want to get married and have kids.
Myself in three words: Determined, hardworking and down to earth.
