I have another character from my upcoming novel, No Sacrifice, to talk about today. When I sat down to write Patrick, I didn’t originally have a physical character inspiration for him. I just had an image in my head of what he should look like. I knew he was Hawai’ian, I knew he was fairly short, not too muscular, long black hair, etc. But an actual person hadn’t come up yet.
So, I was talking to my oldest one day and he said, “Have you looked at Keahu Kahanui? He doesn’t have long hair, but he’s Hawai’ian.” So, I looked him up. Slightly more muscular than the Patrick in my head, and short hair, definitely. But otherwise, I was thrilled by just how close he was.
And that smile! Is that not adorable? I think so, too. *grin*
I’ve followed his twitter quite a bit and he’s a total geek. It’s so awesome. He does cosplay and goes to cons! And he fanboys over Wil Wheaton. How cool is that?
He can also seriously rock a suit. *dreamy sigh*
Sorry this one’s so short, but I can’t leave without giving you at least a bit more eye candy, can I?
How about one of the results of my google searches: “Keahu Kahuanui abs”?
