Finnlay Davis: Model Off Duty
Where do you live now?
I live in Dalston. It is probably one of the best places in London. It is a very trendy area, there is a lot going on. Nightlife is good. It is a cool place. I moved there from Essex when I was still at school, so I had to travel an hour and a half for school every day. Then I decided to go to college for two, three months and before I decided to do modelling full time.
How do you pass your time at castings?
Friends, your phone. Yeah that is what helps me get through. I know a lot of people in the industry, people from all over the world. It is cool, it is a good experience to have.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
The power of being able to run really fast. To run really fast or to be able to skip time. That would help me a lot.
What music are you listening to right now?
At the moment I am listening to grime. A bit of London grime. When I am going out, I am listening to a bit of drum and bass. Travis Scott is probably one of my favourites, I listen to him a lot. ASAP Rocky is probably one of my idols. I have seen him live a few times. I’ve met him a few times through Jonny [designer JW Anderson]. He’s a cool guy.
What advice would you give when it comes to modelling?
With modelling, I would say the best advice I could give is to be professional, stay focused, don’t lose yourself in the game and just be positive. All around.
