Jeremy Maloviere is the quintessential English eccentric: a time-travelling bohemian jettisoned from the mid-19th Century to the media-frenzy of the 1990s, he comes complete with smoking-jacket, monocle, and credentials as both poet and musician, Shakespearean actor and astrological therapist. Maloviere lives in a big house in the country, from which he commutes to London for film, fashion and advertising-work.
He became involved in character-agencies in the Eighties in the hope that it would bring him more acting, especially television acting-work; but to his surprise it brought "... pretty much all fashion and haute couture".
As a model, Maloviere has appeared in innumerable haute-couture fashion-editorials for the Condé Nast Group (including L'Uomo Vogue, Männer Vogue, GQ Style, Per Lui, Marie Claire & Brides Magazine), a number of photo-features (for example in The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Guardian, The Observer, The New Yorker and London's Time Out magazine), and in limited-edition collector's catalogues for Japanese designer Monsieur Nicole.
He has also been interviewed in his own right for The B.B.C. Latin-American Service; Radio-Télévision France; Faces of England for Japanese television; The London Evening Standard; The Sun Newspaper (July 2005); The Guardian (The G2 Close-Up, 30/04/07); Details Magazine (New York); Scene Magazine (London); 'The Dandies' edition of The Chap magazine in September, 2007; and most recently for the three-part documentary Britain's Ugliest Models, made about his principal agency, Ugly Models, which has just been broadcast on Fiver.
Apart from modelling his occupations have oscillated between actor, musician, music-therapist and professional star-gazer: "It is strange, but I seem to have a change of direction every seven years," he says.
