5 Minutes With William

20 January 2012

Remember that handsome Elite lad from "Closer", in that stylish purple Burberry coat? If you need a bit of refreshing, check out the preview to his 8 page story in our latest book. After his shoot with India Hobson, we had a super quick catch up with Mr. Potter.

What are you currently up to?
Next to modelling, I have three days to find a flat before I am homeless!

What inspires you and why?
I really like London. It has something for everyone at all times, and people are really open minded.

What do you do when you're not working?
I love listening to and playing music.
(We're surprised that he didn't give us a song or two to listen to here like he did on India's day with him for "Closer". When we saw that in his last interview, we were a bit like awww.....)

Who would be your ultimate brand, designer or photographer to work with?
I'd love to do a Burberry campaign, and shoot with Mario Testino.

What's the best piece of advise you have ever had?
What goes around comes around.

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, who would you be?
I wouldn't be telling anyone....
(Ever so full of mystery and dark shapes, we are not surprised William leaves us guessing on this one.)

Thank you William, your hair is stunning and your scouse accent the best ever!
