ED BALE: "I LOVE SPORT, IN AUSTRALIA IT’S CRICKET AND RUGBY BUT I ALSO REALLY LIKE PLAYING AND WATCHING BASKETBALL - MOST PEOPLE DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I CAN DUNK."
27th February 2015
Who is Ed Bale?
I’m an 18 year old boy from Sydney who’s found himself living in New York a couple months out of high school.
What did you do before modeling?
I was just your average high school student working part time in catering.
If you weren’t a model what would you be?
Right now I would be starting university in Sydney, which I still aim to do of course.
Your personal passion or hidden talents?
I love sport, in Australia it’s cricket and rugby but I also really like playing and watching basketball - most people don’t believe me when I say I can dunk. I love animals too I have quite a few pets back home.
Ten years from now (you will be…)?
When I’m 28 maybe I’ll still be modeling. I want to have graduated university and be building a career that I enjoy doing. Right now the goal is to get into the world of international relations and foreign diplomacy.
Every piece of Australian slang ever.
What’s no fun?
Cold wind is definitely no fun.
A cold one at the end of the day always satisfies - or seeing my dog, Lachie.
Current 'eye candy'?
The Iron Giant hands down.
Ironically, the vintage Omega watch I inherited from my Grandfather.
What’s your beauty secret or essential grooming routine?
A quote that sums you up:
“Your ambition should be to get as much out of living as you possibly can, as much enjoyment, as much interest, as much experience, as much understanding. Not simply be what is generally called a “success.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin Frankli
