If you're not watching Killing Eve yet, you should be. My addition began last Friday and I streamed through the first 8 episodes in about three days. Sandra Oh is brilliant, as is the entire supporting cast. Be warned however, the show doesn't let you relax very often, just when you think things are intense enough, another heart pounding scene begins.
In the show's second episode we're introduced to the beautiful Sebastian. (Charlie Hamblett) Sebastian lost his TV remote and is hunting through the garbage in the hope it may have ended up there. Serial killer Villanelle meant our adorable Sebastian no harm, she liked him, and rode him like she was in The Kentucky Derby. But.. the harder they ride, the harder they well...if you've seen the episode you'll know it's the scent of a woman that sometimes bring man to his knees.
It was difficult finding out much about the fetching Charlie Hamblett who played Sebastian. The English actor dated Daisy Ridley for a bit, but it's been over for awhile. His IMDB resume has five credits, two being roles in new film adaptations of Shakespeare's Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream. I guessing with his talent, combined with those beautiful baby blues and luscious lips, we'll be seeing more of Mr. Hamblett in the future.
Although 25 year old Duoc-Thanh may not be up for his full frontal close-up just yet, that doesn't mean he's not up for pushing the envelope and pushing his boundaries within his work. The Washington model shares that right now, he tends to mostly book more risqué shoots and that's just fine with him. Duoc has a model friend who primarily books fashion shoots, buttoned up in a suit and tie. Duoc on the other hand is usually wearing much less... 'I'm more of the sexy edgy projects kind of guy. I love doing what I do and I wouldn't change it for a bit.'
For this series from Mark from MW Photo MD, Duoc didn't have to worry about being hot and sweaty in a suit, his wardrobe mostly consisted of a hat, a jock strap and of course a pair of hand cuffs. Mark discovered Duoc's portfolio while scrolling through ModelMayhem, liked his look and got in touch about scheduling a shoot together. Mark always finds it interesting to discuss shoot possibilities and ensuring the model he is working with can also get what their looking for to add to their portfolio.
With his beautifully mesmerizing brown eyes, sultry lips and face and great body, Duoc is a natural in front of the camera, however being in front of the camera wasn't his initial goal. In school, Duoc's goal was to create a career in graphic design or photography. In his attempt to learn more about the craft of photography, Duoc met a photographer who encouraged him to set in front of the lens rather than behind it.
'He said that I was a natural. One shoot led to another. As the photo shoots progressed, more clothes came off. I've always been insecure about my body growing up. Now in my young adult stage, I've been more confident. I've always been a very sexual person as well. Nudity does not scare me. I would love to make a living off my body if I could.'
'Our shoot went really well, I was looking for Duoc's input and try not to have too many set ideas in mind on how the shoot should proceed, I find it easier that way and I tend to get some nice surprises in my pics, maybe more candid than posed. I tend to get trigger happy some times as well and can take several hundred during a typical 2 hour session. I always feel like I get a good work out in during a shoot! We are working on scheduling a duo intimate shoot in the future and I think that will be a lot of fun!'
'Mark is very professional. I had a blast working with him. He makes you feel comfortable and is very open to different ideas. When I connected with Mark through Model Mayhem I noticed his work was different from what I've ever done before. I've done a couple nude shots here and there but something about Mark's work is different. There's still some vulnerability in his portfolio. There's a simplistic kind of feel with the shoots yet sexy. I love it!'
'This last Therapy shoot was rather special, only the second time I’ve had the luck to photograph two men deeply in love...'
'Shawn and Sergey were the first and Mike and Nick had a powerful bond between them that so beautifully and generously comes through in the photographs. It made for a very special experience. I worked to capture the intimacy between them, the warm, loving and erotic connection that one rarely has the opportunity to observe and study between two men. I felt honored and proud to see the “love that dare not speak it’s name” so proudly and powerfully displayed in the full light of day.'
I love these shots from Richard Rothstein taken at TherapyNYC's last sketchy Saturday in May. The intimacy and passion Richard captured is sensual and powerful, even with an audience around them full of artists and attendee's. Many in that audience, seemed swept up as they looked on and experienced close-up the passion expressed by Nick and Mike. Check out more of Mike and Nick from the May 26th session, and the audiences reaction, on The OVER-FLOW HERE:
