Interview With Curt Roberts

21 April 2012

We thought it was about time to check in with Curt Roberts at Nevs for a little bit. We learn about what he's been up to latest with his modelling, about microwave dinners and his secret sexy racing driver skills. Oooh you say... read on to see what he's on about.

You can also remind yourself about Curt latest fabulous shoot with Cecilie Harris in "The Keepers" here.


Yo Curt, what have you been up to since your fabulous Boys by Girls shoot with Cecilie?
I have been up to loads of exciting things since! I’ve done my first campaign in Amsterdam for Meltin Pot, an editorial shoot for Topman Magazine and a video editorial for Doc Marten shoes.

Who is your favorite photographer to work with and why? (It would be very appropriate to say Cecilie due to her kindness on your shoot, but if you want to mention someone else we'll let you off still.)
I would have to say my favourite photographer would be Cecilie Harris. Cecilie is fun and relaxed to work with and let's you put your own ideas and input into the shoot. Also Darren Black as he was the first photographer I worked with and has helped me a lot in the modelling world ever since.

What are you up to when you're not working?
When I’m not working I’m usually chilling round London with mates or at the gym.

Give us 3 random Curt facts.
Errrm I’m Welsh and proud.
Before I started modelling I was a professional racing driver.
And embarrassingly I’m a huge Elvis Presley fan! haha

If you were to cook us a three-course meal what would you make?
If I was to cook a three-course meal I don’t know what it would be, but all the courses would have to be made in the microwave as I would probably burn the house down!

What's the most romantic thing you've ever done for someone?
I’m not the romantic type, but always treat the ladies with respect and just be a gentleman, as there isn’t as many as there should be these days.

(BBG: Awww...... It's ok, we'll think a three course microwave dinner was well romantic.)

If you were to invent a new TV series, what kind of series would it be and what would it be about?
It would have to be a series similar to the only way is Essex, but based in Ruthin which is my home town in North Wales. There are some strange and funny characters there.

Who's your biggest hero ever and why?
My biggest hero would have to be my Dad. He’s not just my Dad, but my best friend. I wouldn’t be where or who I am today if it wasn’t for the help of him and my family!

What inspires you?
I'm rely inspired by Elvis Presley. I base my dress sense and my hair on him. I hope one day to be just half as successful as he was. And be just as popular with the ladies! haha

What makes you laugh?
The thing that makes me laugh the most but cringe at the same time would have to be when I’m in a bar or a nightclub with my mates, and I see some lad trying to chat up a girl and it’s just not happening.

We can't wait for Curt to invite us over for a super fancy microwave bankquit of a meal. You're popular with us Curt, erm... just like Elvis?
