“Can you make a portrait of Sophia Myles and can you please make it sexy”
“Errrr… but I’m rubbish at that, it’s me, Jon – I do blokes looking heroic, I’m socially awkward, we’ve been over this I’m sure”
“Yes I know but can you do this and make her look lovely then, I mean for Chrissake Jon she’s beautiful just take a picture – and it’s for the cover so make a good job”
Okay so I’m ready. I get to hotel super early with sweaty palms. I’m wearing cologne and an open necked shirt and frankly I’m feeling pretty hot but not in a good way.
Doorbell goes (it’s a suite) and I pull that bad boy back to reveal 5’10” of my beautiful self.
And Sophia walks in with a Vicar behind her.
“Hello I’m Sophia and this is my Dad, he’s a Vicar.”
“Great, nice to meet you Mr Myles, I’m Jonathan and I’m going to photograph your daughter in that bedroom looking lovely and sexy. Would you like to help yourself to the mini-bar?”
That’s a true factoid.
