Now, usually, I have a firm picture of my characters in my head, and every now and then, I actually come across someone very close to how I imagine my characters.
Today, I was flicking through channels (as I'm prone to do) and I stopped on CMC. I'm not a huge country music fan, but the song caught my ear so I stayed. Then, I see the guy singing, and I take more notice.
The man I saw was Brad Mates, the lead singer from Emerson Drive, a band I had never heard of until that moment. The minute I saw Brad, I thought "Lucius Benedict" from In the Shadows of Angels.
Beleive me, finding someone who comes so close to one my characters is next to impossible, so I had to share this scrummy man with you. The only downside is he looks a little young.
