After I asked for people to keep an eye out for my cousin Daniel as his image begins appearing in commercial ads, I began receiving requests from people for asking for “introductions” and “more hot pixxx pls!” Um, sorry… no can do on the former — but the latter is do-able!
The awesome Disgrasian gals have tapped him as their Babewatch: Babe of the Week and in that spirit, I’ll share some pictures that John Tan Casting was the first to post: Daniel’s photos of “The Outlaw” by Karl Simone, along with the following short interview:
Full Name: Daniel Liu
Hometown: Los Angeles
Discovery/How did you get into modeling: My sister sent in some digital photos from a modeling contest I’d won and I got a call from Ford shortly after that. She never told me she submitted them so I was surprised to get a phone call from the main agent in LA.
Previous career before entering the wonderful world of modeling: I’ve had a couple career jobs before modeling but this is what I love doing most. I get to work with and meet great people, travel, and have flexibility in my schedule. It is perfect for me at the moment.
Other career goals: I definitely have some plans for the future that are aside from modeling. I’d like to own my own business at some point and to also impact some kind of positive change with whatever resources I have. Whether it’s helping the environment, providing for the homeless, or sending medicine overseas, I definitely want to help in any way that I can.
Favorite hobbies: I really enjoy working out, staying healthy, playing the guitar, watching movies, and spending time with the people I love. I can have fun doing just about anything when I’m in the right company.
Favorite music/films: I listen to different music to match my moods. When I’m just getting through the day, I like listening to The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, Keane, The Shins, or lots of Indie Rock. When I’m trying to mellow out or wind down after a long day, it’s Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, or something relaxing. As far as my favorite movies go, Top Gun is definitely one of them. I also liked the films Fight Club and Pulp Fiction.
How did you enjoy doing this shoot? I loved working with the team. They were amazing to work with and very professional.
People will be surprised to know this about me: I can be serious at times, but really I’m a guy that loves to have fun. I work hard but I also enjoy the little things in life.
Ok, ok, sorry I made you go through all that when I know people really just want to see the pictures. (Hey! I want people to know what an awesome person Daniel is and that there’s more to him than just being good looking! Is that so wrong?!) But be warned… you may see more of Daniel than you asked for!
