When writing the character of Scott, I make a big deal of the character's eyes... and as I was writing some of the scenes, I recalled some photos of a friend of mine. With his kind permission, I can now share a couple of pictures with you.
Are you hearing those drums yet?
Well, here he is!
Imagine these eyes, and maybe the hair too...
... merging the two together, and I think I then have my 'Scott'.
Between them there is enough boyish charm and a sense of mischief to balance with the smouldering and general 'hotness', and it could easily be possible to mistake Scott for being 25-ish instead of 31. I don't want Scott to come across as moody or mysterious, I need him to be sincere, caring and protective with those eyes being the gateway into his soul.
But what do you guys think - how do you picture Scott?
Does a celeb or particular image spring to mind when you think of those first two chapters?
