Tell us about yourself in <200 words
My name is Paul Duke. I'm an actor with a Master Degree in International and European Law who speaks 4 languages (Dutch, English, French and German). I am currently based in Los Angeles, California with my wife Laura and Neapolitan Mastiff, Don Giovanni. I am passionate about Viking Training and historical movies and series. My father passed away in 2015 of cancer so therefore a healthy lifestyle is very important to me.
How tall are you?
I'm a 6'6"
How has being tall affected you in daily life? What's one of your biggest peeves about being tall and how did you solve it?
I've always been tall growing up, always the tallest in class so I never experienced any growing pains and I loved it!!! As a kid I always wanted to be 6'6'' or 2 meters as I like even numbers. At one point my mom took me to a specialist to see how tall I was gonna be and he predicted over 7 feet!!! Thankfully I stopped growing as now I'm tall but not freakishly tall. And still, finding clothes is never easy as the sleeves or pants in most brands are always too short.I have an athletic built with a small waist and broad shoulders which doesn't make it easier. So when I do find the right clothes (Navas and Stijn Helsen) I usually stack up!
What do you do and why do you do it the hard/DIY way?
I always choose the hard way, that's just who I am. In High School I studied Latin-Math even though I was (and still am) terrible at math! I went to Law School and graduated even though I hated it and wanted to be an actor since childhood but my parents never considered that a serious profession. But now I'm glad I have that degree in my pocket as it formed the way I'm thinking. It would have been much easier to continue in that field but again, I chose to leave everything and everyone behind in order to pursue my dream of becoming an actor in Hollywood. Nothing is easy in life but good things come to those who persist!
What are your long term goal?
My long term goals are to have a fulfilling life as an artist and being able to inspire people to turn their lives around for the better. I'm not interested in selling out with projects that don't nourish my soul.I will always choose quality over quantity! I'm a part of the latest campaign of Bud Light which will probably be airing at the SuperBowl and I'm also in talks to have my own reality show about unreasonable fitness together with my brother Jacob Peacock. Together we're known as The Vikingbrothers on social media. He's the shortie at 6'5" lol!
What does,"Not Bad For a Human," mean to you?
Not bad for a human to me means, "Mens Sana in Corpore Sano," a healthy mind in a healthy body! Humans are stronger than they think but sometimes they need some motivation in getting to places to never thought were achievable. When you conquer yourself, the world is yours to take!
What Navas products have you been wearing lately?
I have the Crowe Tencel Tee and Vasquez Microstripe Hoodie right now and I love both of them. Never thought bamboo would be so soft and comfy. Excellent quality so it's more a matter of how hot it is that determines what I'll wear.
How can we find out more about you? (website, IG, FB, IMDB etc.)?
