Exclusive interview with the talented actor and model Will Peltz, photographed by Justin Campbell.
How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?
– I just recently have joined my family in quarantine and have taken the opportunity to spend time together. We play chess, watch old movies and prepare meals together. At this time the world is a different place so we have to adapt and create in different ways.
What is your first memory with fashion? And how did you start modeling?
My first memory with fashion would definitely be when I got my first pair of Jordan’s and is still very much a part of my style today. I’ve always been a sneaker head. I did a piece with Interview Magazine promoting my movie Men, Women and Children which brought me into the fashion world.
What is your daily beauty routine like? And what beauty products you cannot go without?
Washing my face and applying sunscreen.
What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined and how did you learn it?
I’ve learned to take my time with things. I was always in such a rush before.
Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your CV?
I’m double jointed in both of my thumbs :).
What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes?
A movie theatre!
What is your favorite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?
I’ve actually been listening to a lot of classical music. I find it very calming.
What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?
The first thing I do when I wake up is have my morning coffee. My nightly routine changes every night.
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? If yes, describe your experience of Amsterdam in one sentence.
Unfortunately I have not but I can’t wait to go someday.
What is your go-to work-out for staying in shape? What does working out mean to you?
I’ve been doing a lot of walking and rollerblading lately but honestly I can’t wait to play basketball when quarantine is over.
What is your favorite painting and has it inspired you for any of your work thus far?
‘Starry night’ by Van Gogh, not yet.
How was it like being a part of Euphoria?
It was really cool to be a part of a show that speaks so honestly to this generation.
Do you have any new roles coming up soon?
Yes, I’m very excited to be playing the role of Luke in the upcoming film, Thirteen Minutes.
