Who is Lee Kholafai? Tell us five things about yourself that people would not know.
1. I'm from Alabama.
2. I like to freestyle.
3. I have a pitbull named Titan.
4. My childhood dream was to be in the NFL
5. I'm a scorpio
Tell us about your first break into the world of modelling. Was it easy for you? Were you nervous?
It was all by chance really. I got scouted while vacationing in Miami but I didn't pay it any attention because my focus was football. I then broke my ankle and decided to give it a try. I've been fortunate enough to book work so it hasn't been too hard. I think my southern charm helps haha. I was definitely nervous my first couple of shoots but after doing it a while, posing became second nature lol
Is it easier to have a love life as a model?
Hmmm, well with the model discounts I suppose haha. Its definitely helped me experience life in a more diverse way with all my traveling. I've learned so much by living in different countries and that, I am very thankful for.
What’s the best thing about your job? What’s the worst?
The best thing is the food on set ( I LOVE to eat) and the traveling. The worst is being away from my family and friends. Oh yea, the worst is also having to stay in shape year round and having to say no to chocolate cake if I have a job the next day haha.
What has been the oddest thing you have had to wear during a photoshoot?
A huge scorpion on my face!!! It was crazy!!! The zookeeper was there but still. I was freaked out because it still had its stinger and was crawling all over my nose and lips. I'm happy I survived that one lol
What made you want to act and is this something you’ve wanted to do for a long time?
Well, I did my first acting job and I literally fell in love. In acting, I get to show who I am as a person and bring a character to life. In modeling, I'm posed so a lot of times you can't see who I am as a person.
We have casted you in the role of a sexy centuries-old vampire (essentially, the true Dracula) who is also pyrokinetic . How would you feel about playing that role? (You can check out post here.)
Hmmm. sounds dangerous!!!! I like it haha!!!!
What are some of your hobbies?
I play football, hike, and enjoy boxing.
It is to my understanding that you prefers Pits over other dogs, is there a particular reason why?
Well, they are big lovable babies who are actually very smart,loyal and goofy. I hate the way they are stereotyped and banned so I love being able to spread awareness that they are an amazing breed. Also, I think I'd be a pit if I was a dog haha.
And this is the question that all the ladies want to know the answer to: How would you woo a woman?
Hmmm, make her laugh. At least, I hope that works haha.
Time for the rapid-fire questions!
Fave food? Chicken & Waffles!!!!
Fave drink? Root Beer!!!!
Beach or Mountains? Beach
Sunrise or Sunset? Sunset
Single or taken? Complicated haha
Boxers or briefs? Boxer briefs!!!!
Special thanks to Lee for being so awesome and chatting with us. Thanks to Scott for the video. And most of all to Benita who fuels my Lee obsession. Yes, I'm blaming you. ;P
