Kind of a Tom Welling vibe about this guy. Out of Nevs in London.

We had a great time chatting to Chris Poulter from Nevs Models, and think its an amazing skill to be able to do 'hundreds' of kick-ups and still be terrible at football. We applaud you!
How long have you been a model?
3 months now.
That’s quite a short time, how’s that going for you?
Yeah it’s going well, it’s my first show so I enjoyed it.
First like, you hadn’t done any walking before?
Yesterday was my first walk.
How was that?
It was brilliant. Great buzz.
Are you addicted now?
Yeah, I enjoyed it!
Everyone kind of says that when they walk out they’re like, “I have to do it again, like right now!”
Yeah, definitely it is an adrenaline rush.
What were you wearing for Shaun Samsom?
I was wearing, a big knitted cardigan, which was left open, and some short tartan shorts with big leather boots, and a flat cap! The collection was quite cool, really sort of a bit different. A bit edgy, so it’d be interesting to see what people think about it.
What other stuff have you done as you’re quite new, have you done some editorials?
Not too many really, I’ve done a few. But yesterday I was doing some Savile Row presentation.
Were there lots of different groups of guys wearing suits? We went to see that.
Yeah that was the one. I was in the dinner jackets.
What was that like? We loved how there was a story in each different room.
Yeah it was quite good fun – meeting new models. And it was quite relaxed, we were allowed to chat and whatever. It was really cool. It’s nice, you got to relax. I think the shows are a little bit more fun, cause of the excitement. Yeah it’s quite a relaxing job.
Three random facts please!
Three random facts? Okay, I like extreme sports so I race motocross.
Amazing! What other extreme sports do you do?
I’m a bit big in skiing, I used to do ski racing.
That’s cool. I can do the snow plough.
Oh can you! The pizza? The pizza and the chips!
Yeah exactly! Really slowly down the mountain.
Right ok haha, safety, safety first of course! But you enjoy it?
Yeah I do. Now that’s only one fact, we need two more please!
Two more, I don’t know. Random facts about me?
Yeah maybe secret talents?
I am very good at kick ups. But I’m terrible at actually playing football.
What’s your record? Or do you not count?
Until I get bored yeah. I’m going to say hundreds haha.
And one final one?
One final one is that my ears are actually at slightly different heights but you would never know until I wore glasses.
Ah can you try on Ieva’s glasses?
No! no! Haha!
That was great, thanks Chris!

we are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams. wandering by lone sea breakers and sitting by desolate streams. world losers and world forsakers, on whom the pale moon gleams. yet we are the movers and shakers of the world for ever it seems
