You’d think being discovered by Gucci…and being a top male model would be cool. Ok, it actually is, and here model-turned-actor Lucas Babin tells us about playing a cowboy in South America, being crowned Woodville Dogwood King, and why women should be more like well, Gisele Bundchen.
Sometimes a guy gets a lucky break. Sometimes that break comes in the form of landing in New York, Milan and Paris as the new “It Boy” model of the fashion world. It happened to this nice guy from east Texas and just like in the movies, it completely changed his life. From model to actor, Lucas Babin can now be seen in the biggest television hit South America has seen in decades, America. Here we get an inside look into Babin’s world and find that good looks can come dished up with a side of humor.
Lance Avery Morgan: Tell me about growing up in Woodville, Texas.
Lucas Babin: There was a Wal Mart and two stop lights. It was a kid's paradise with its woods, creeks, little league, and riding my bike all over town.
LAM: I understand you were crowned Woodville Dogwood King one year. What was that like?
LB: The queen was crowned. I was just the escort. It was indescribably breathtaking.
