Words by Collen Demerez
This weeks interview is with one of the hottest faces out right now and one you might have already seen on our Best New Faces List. Walking in FW19 Men's shows for AMI Paris, Kenzo, Dunhill and Raf Simons and also having recently opened the Versace FW19 Menswear Show, a lot of people were left wondering who he was and where he came from. Those of us, myself included, that have been following the whirlwind of the Norwegian Skam remakes, instantly recognised him as the actor of Alejandro in Skam Espana and were filled with excitement for the exposure he is receiving. Fernando Lindez is a name everyone should keep in mind and with him gearing up for an amazing year you can expect to see a lot of him in the coming months. With Lindez being more than equipped with the talent to become the next huge star not only in modelling but in entertainment, it was only right we learnt more about him.
