Emily Bostock: The model interview

The first time I met Emily was in year 8; I was a chubby 13 year old with worsening acne and braces, and she was the graceful and seemingly quiet girl in the year above. Despite this, we never really talked until I moved schools 2 years later, having lost a majority of the weight and acne (or so I like to think). At a friend's summer party (where the kids at my new school got drunk and poured beer over each other while the less-neanderthal of us socialised and talked like normal people), we got to know each other and ended up getting on really well.
 The last time I talked to her was at a birthday party a few months back, where we were talking (or shouting) to each other, and over all the heavy drum & bass I just managed to make out the words "modelling" and "IMG"
While Emily is still in the 'development' section of the IMG Models site, she's already been doing jobs and I took the opportunity to ask her a few questions before she gets too busy (yeah, we did it over facebook). So here are a couple of random things you should know about Emily Bostock:

What's your favourite colour?  "Purple"
Favourite movies? "Inception, The Boat That Rocked or Labrinth (with David Bowie)"
Favourite Band? "It's got to be Elbow"
Favourite Disney Princess? "Cinderella" (I can imagine Emily as Cinderella)
Favourite books? "I loved Jacqueline Wilson"

Who's your idol? "Matt Smith" (Doctor Who)
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? "South Africa- it sounds so beautiful"
What's your favourite animal and why? "Dogs, they're amazing companions and they will sit there with you and listen if you're upset- they'll look after you, and they're great if you need comforting"
What's your most irrational fear? "Spiders... *shudder* "
Do you have any weird obsessions? what are they? "I'm obsessed with Doctor Who and Downton Abbey"
Any hidden talents? "If you play any episode of Doctor Who from 2005 to 2010, and pause it at any moment, I can say the next line of dialogue." (it's true, she can. I've seen it and it's scary)
If you were granted three wishes, what would you wish for? "Love, Success, Happiness"
What was your best memory of 2013? "Probably going to Tanzania and meeting the people we are helping there- my parents are trustees of a locally run charity and we are building a children's centre in a small village, offering education and boarding for 36 children. The people were absolutely wonderful, and the kids were amazing because they were so happy. It was an amazing experience."

Hopefully we'll be seeing a whole lot more of Emily, and I wish her the best of luck with everything :D
