This is Linus

How long have you been modelling for and what inspired you to become a model?

I started modelling around 8 months ago, after being scouted by an agent at CORE. She asked me whether I was interested in modelling, and I thought it would be a very good chance to become more confident.

Favourite city or place in the world and why?

My favourite city is Berlin, where I’ve lived since 2008. Why? Because of the diversity.

The most important thing to you that you   can´t live without?

The most important “things” are my friends and family. And I think I can´t live without music.

Most treasured possession?

My most treasured possession is being healthy, hopefully my whole life long.

Your greatest fear?

I hate wasps and all insects that fly around my ears. But my greatest fear is someone in my family getting seriously ill.

Favourite clothing brand?

I don’t have a favourite clothing brand. I always go around and look for some nice clothes. But I like to go to Jack and Jones.

What characteristic do you value most in people?

I value loyalty and honesty most in people.

Which animal is your spirit animal?

I think fish, I’ve loved being under water since I was two years old.

Something, no-one would expect about you?

I think people wouldn´t expect that I play table tennis. Because I often hear that I could be a football or basketball player.

All time favourite TV show or movie?

My favourite movie is called “A Quiet Place”

How do you spend a typical Saturday night?

I often spend my Saturday night at home. I don’t like to go to parties or clubbing. When I`m with friends, we`re always outside, listening to music and just going around.

What really makes you laugh?

It’s always very dumb sh*t that really makes me laugh. Like in school when the teacher asks something and two minutes later someone asks the same question again. I also like memes and films where they´re kidding every second. Sometimes the jokes come out of nowhere and you’re just like; WTF.

Three words would others probably use to describe you?

Maybe; loyal, likeable and attentive.

What is favourite band or songwriter & style of music?

My favourite songwriter is called Night Lovell. He`s an American rapper with a very dark voice. Furthermore I like EDM, rap, instrumental chill out music and sometimes alternative rock. For me, each mood has has its own type of music or songwriter.

Favourite comfort food?

My favourite comfort food is probably Asian food like rice, noodles and other stuff like that.

What´s the craziest thing you´ve ever done?

Every summer, my parents and I drive to an amusement park. Last year we travelled to Europa Park and I decided to ride a rollercoaster called Silver Star; 70 meters at the highest point and 130 km/h after the first drop. This was so incredible. Also because you only had a slim metal bar to keep you in your seat.

If you had to teach a subject, what would it be?

Probably I would teach sports and English. I´m not so good at speaking English fluently yet, but I´m practicing during shoots.

What do you believe makes a successful life?

I think a successful life is when you´re happy with yourself. Moreover, always having some friends or a person who knows you very well, like a girlfriend or boyfriend. And that you´re always in contact with your family. Furthermore, your job has to be comfortable enough where you can earn money and not only pay your rent.
