One of the main characters in Damage is Aiden’s best friend Drew (it’s short for Andrew if you’re Scottish). I thought it might be fun to make him the really drop-dead georgous one instead of Aiden, although Aiden is really attractive in his own way.
Anyway, I was trawling the internet one night (as you do) and found the perfect Drew. If Damage is ever made into a film this guy is Drew. No question. Even if he can’t act. He can just stand there and look good!
His name is Vinnie Woolston and he’s a New Zealand model. What do you think?
Here’s an extract where Cerys meets him for the first time:
They were so deep in an animated conversation that they nearly collided with me as I tripped over my wet trouser leg trying to side-step them.
“Woah! Sorry.” One them laughed and put out a hand to stop himself from walking into me. I flinched instinctively.
He was so tall that I had to glance up to catch his face. The only thing I really took in was a black biker jacket, collar-length dark hair, even darker eyes and fantastic cheekbones. I know that’s a really strange thing to notice about someone, but it certainly defined his face. He was what you’d call classically poster-boy handsome. I immediately dropped my eyes back to the floor. I couldn’t deal wtih this right now.
