So Joey can you tell us a bit about yourself
Hi I’m Joey I’m 21 and I’m from Supa.
How long have you been modeling?
Just over 2 and a half months.
Only! What shows did you work over London?
In London I did Burberry Exclusive.
Two and a half months and you’ve already got Burberry under your belt..
It’s pretty good ey haha.
So has that been your highlight?
Yeah that and ahh the general partying really. The free champagne, the Burberry show was great, but the free champagne afterwards was like aahh what a treat!
Pretty jammy, have you done any editorials or campaigns yet?
No campaigns yet, but I was shot by Rankin for Hunger Magazine recently which was pretty cool.
What was he like?
He knows what he wants. He rocks up, he’s like ‘pass us the camera would ya’, then he just gets it done. Bosh. I was like ‘Hi Mr. Rankin, how’s it going?’
Describe yourself in three words.
Sincere, outgoing and fun.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
What like room 101 sort of thing?
You know room 101. You wanna put something in it that you never want to deal with again. It’s like this program, like celebrities go on it and they put stuff in room 101. Like if you hate something, like people on tubes that haven’t used deodorant, you would put them in room 101.
Yeah lets do that then. So is that your pet peeve?
When I used to live up north, we used to get loads of old women knocking on your door asking for money like for you know security like neighborhood watch.
You know neighbourhood watch? Where are you from?
The south... Brighton.
Thats ridiculous. You see we’re real up north! haha We have these people that come knock on your doors and are like ‘Hey we’re from neighbouhood watch, can you give us some money?’, and you just think - what are you actually gonna do with that?
If you could go anywhere in the world right this second, where would you go?
I’d go to my uncle's little cabin in Sweden. It’s just really cool in the winter, you can ski and stuff. Right now I’d like to go see him and for him to give me a whisky.
Right ... If you were king for a day,
The King of England, what would be the first thing you would do?
Umm I would... I’d make sure I had a wife, and I would wanna get a festival going everyday. Like every band that I loved would just come chill with me..... or no, they would come and serenade me.
Who would you have?
Brian Jones Town Massacre.
Yeah know them well.
Or the Pixies, you know the pixies!
Of course! In a fight between a shark and a rhino, who do you think would win?
Depends if the rhino plunged his nose into the sharks mouth like a cork and then they would just become one. SharkRhino.
Like the horn in the sharks mouth?
No just in.... Just plug it like a cork in a wine bottle. Bosh. Then they would be one so wouldn’t have to fight.
Haha great. If you were limited to only taking advice from one person you know for the rest of your life, who would it be?
My cousin Nick cause it would be more exciting. It would always be the bad ones. ‘Do this! Do that’ and I would just have to do it. I would get in so much trouble.
What accomplishment are you the most proud of?
Making my first film, which was an animation, really short. It was about a fish on a mission. It was a stop motion about this fish that escapes a shopping bag in the kitchen and he makes it back to the sea.
That’s really sweet. Did you use a real fish?
Well it was dead, but yeah. We had to buy like ten mackreal from Waitrose. Quite expensive film really. Because you have to keep doing it. Move a tiny bit then shoot again. We got an underwater camera as well - just a shitty one and we played it to the great escape music as well. It’s amazing.
Thats hialrious ,is it on youtube?
I think it is actually. Do you wanna see it? It’s really badly made. I don’t know how old I was - 16 or something... (Joey proceeds to taking my laptop and finding the video on youtube).
Is it here?
58 views .. haha .. I don’t even know why it’s on here. How sick is that! (we sit, we watch, we laugh - it’s longer than expected) Many a fish died in the process. Yeah it’s not meant to be a dead fish obviously it’s supposed to look alive. Zombie fish. ‘I’m coming back!’. See we didn’t have a tripod so we were trying to balance the camera without shaking our hands so that's why it’s filmed so bad. The fish jumps on top of the car and then somehow drives to the beach haha! I dunno how he does that... that wasn’t in the script!
Was this for a project?
No no, me and my mates were just like ‘what shall we do today?’ and I said lets go make a film.
So this is the biggest achievement so far in your life then? Not Burberry or...
Haha no it’s not the biggest achievement obviously, but it started something in me that I wanted to do for ages. My achievement was finding what I wanted to do basically.
That was great. Do you know how to fly a kite? Because that’s what you're doing today.
Oh yeah we saw that. Looks cool. Maybe, if it’s already made.
Ok how would your dad describe you?
My dad, probably just like... awesome..
Yeah! Haha no, I was joking. He thinks I’m really musical, he’s a song writer so he loves it. He probably just thinks that I’m like a drop of the old, what is it... the apple from the tree.
Apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree?
Yeah yeah, but that's the saying but what's the ... Oh you know the ... Chip off the old block! (he claps with enthusiasm)
Thanks for that Joey, very insightful. Maybe you could make a film about us escaping to the sea sometime.
During his recent visit to the BBG Headquarters, we sat down with the wonderful Joey Rogers at Supa Models to get to know a little bit more about this multi-talented young man. He recently added the prestigious Burberry Prorsum to his CV when he took to the runway at London Collections: Men for their SS14 collection. He talks to us about the highlights of the show and why he prefers London to Paris.
Shot here in a polaroid by Cecilie Harris, Joey looks every bit as relaxed as his personality. He is currently studying film and already has three films under his directorial belt. But his talents don't stop there; he also knows how to play the piano, drums and guitar - basically he's a one man band. This boy aims high, and told us of his ambition to one day play James Bond. We admire him for his doubtless spirit in this dream, and look forward to sitting down to the new Bond film in a few years time and seeing our beloved Joey on the big screen!
Hey Joey, (it's very tempting to add "how you doin?" here, but we manage to control ourselves) can you tell us a bit about your model journey so far?
My journey... my journey started when I was in a diner. I was with my ex and some guys came up to me and were like “Hey, are you a model?” I said no. “Do ya wanna be?” and so I said yes. So I did testing for a few weeks. Did Burberry, which was really cool. Exclusive. Bosh. Got that out of the way.
We had another guy who did that today..
Thats ace man.
Yeah I know him.
Supa Boys did really well in that show.
Yeah eight boys we had!
That’s amazing, would you say that has been your highlight?
Yeah it was brilliant. Well that wasn’t the highlight, the highlight was afterwards with all the free champagne, just chilling, partying with the lads. It was amazing. Then went to Paris, that was pretty wicked, but I prefer it here I think.
Why do you prefer here?
Because I don’t speak French. It’s just the language barrier. English are ignorant, we don’t learn other languages. The French have attitude and bread.
Haha yeah and cheese. I actually turned into a loaf while I was there.
If you could describe yourself in three words what would they be?
Yeah skinny trousers. Um and smiley.
You said you wanted to get away this summer - where would you go if you could?
I went to Canada a few years ago and I really want to go back. I did a skiing season there, so I want to go back.
What do you think makes a person truly beautiful?
Are we talking about anything about them or just looks?
I think there is that thing. It’s not really a thing that someone has, but it’s a connection between two people I think. You can like look into their eyes and connect. It’s that sort of beauty that’s intriguing.
Other than modeling what are you passionate about?
Film. And Music. I play piano, drums and guitar and I’m at uni doing film. I direct. The last film I directed was amazing... well of course I would say that, but it was like a super natural Noir.
What was it about?
It was called "The Salesman". It’s sort of like a grim reaper sort of thing. About human greed and why people go for things. So he would offer people the idea of paradise, but really he was death and it was about what people want.
Wow. Can we find it anywhere?
Yeah I think you can actually. If I had my phone I could give it to you. I don’t know whether its on YouTube. I could send it to you guys.
Yeah, we would love to see it. Show it to our viewers! What is your ultimate dream?
To play James Bond. Huge James Bond fan. Massive.
Are you an actor or is this just a random thing?
No. But I’m gonna do it though. I am. haha
You sound so confident.
I am gonna do it. I am.
Would you want to be like the old James Bond’s, kind of cheesy or the new Daniel Craig version?
Ok so, George Lazenby, not to bore you all, he was in "On Her Majesties Secret Service", and he had never had an acting role in his life. What he did was he went to Connery’s tailor, his hairdresser, turned up at Eon which was Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman’s production company, just rocked up there. They saw if he could ride a horse and stuff. And he got the role. Bosh. Amazing. I’ve always been such a James Bond fan, it’s my geeky side coming out.
What’s your favorite Bond film?
Maybe "Gold Finger". And "On Her Majesties Secret Service". John Barry’s composition for that is ridiculous. So probably that.
Tell us a little bit more about your film interest. Where are you studying?
Studying at London Metropolitan. I’ve directed three films now, two documentaries - one was about, you know Forbidden Planet in Covent Garden. Massive comic book store, and it is about the guy that started it. He got chucked out for drugs and stuff, but he was the one that pushed it all in the sixties and he was a massive part of Watchmen that got turned into a film. So it was about him and how he’s trying to get back into it by doing a James Bond graphic novel. Ironically enough... (we all laugh)
What makes you truly happy?
Probably drinking whiskey with my dad. He’s a proper Irish man, so it’s just really chilled. My grandma has got a farm in Ireland, so we all go out there every year. She’s got cattle and stuff. We just go by the fire, have a whiskey. It’s really cool.
So if you could leave us with any life advise what would it be?
Life is not about money.
But it is about becoming James Bond.
But it is about becoming James Bond. Yeah. That’s exactly it.
Thanks for being a true sport Joey, we learnt so much in our short time together. Hope to see more of you soon!
