Tom King - Meet The Models

3 February 2024

In this months Meet The Models, we've been chatting to our top fave Tom King!

Hey Tom,

1) How did you get into the industry?

My family and friends urged me to get into modelling and send my photos off to a local modelling agency which I did and they happened to accept me onto their books and from there I just expanded, 12 years later I'm still modelling and I absolutely love it 

2) Do you remember your first job?

Yes not only because it is in my diary ha but because it was an incredible moment, it was being part of Tom ford's winter fashion show in London in the presence of Anna Wintor, Tom ford, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Next morning at 5 30 I was back in my factory job contemplating leaving to try modelling 

3) What’s been your favourite campaign you have worked on and why?

My favourite campaign is a toss up between a tv advert I did for Victoria plum being in a bath all day, being the face of Disney for 6 months or a campaign I did for a shopping centre in Birmingham where I was on billboards, which was next door to the job I decided to quit to give modelling a chance, a surreal moment.. I can't pick between the three sorry 

4) Any advice to new faces?

On your photoshoots if you arrive early you're on time, if you're on time you're late and if you're late you have lost the job.. This is a good mentality to have to make sure you're always punctual and have a happy client 

5) Do you have a beauty routine?

Yes, water on face haha I'm very lucky 

6) What is the strangest thing you’ve been asked to do on set?

I had a woman paint my bum blue, put me in coconut and put ice cream balls on my bum - it was a great job 

7) Do you have a dream brand or client you are yet to shoot for? A Dream Collaboration? And why?

I'm a big arsenal fan and even though I've modelled for them before the campaign didn't go live so I would like to do another shoot for them where this time I can be everywhere.. That would be special to me 

8) Outside of modelling, what is your biggest passion?

Oooh I like this question I'm going to go with going away on holiday to explore new places, meet new people and work on my tan.. If it's a tropical holiday then I'll throw strawberry daiquiris in there too 

9) Have you ever been starstruck when meeting a director or celebrity on set?

I worked on a documentary with Joanna Lumley and I took a real interest in her with how successful she has been in her acting career 

10) If you could only take 3 things with you to a desert island, what would they be and why?

A woman for company and to carry on the family name 
A music instrument for entertainment 
And a dog to help hunt & to distract the future little TK’s

11) What did you want to be when you grew up?

A model/footballer 

12) If you weren’t a model what would you be instead?

A park ranger Looking after animals on a conservation in Africa
