So yesterday, I announced the start of characters week - a 5 part series ending on Friday in a contest. I'm not telling you what the contest is yet, but I will tell you that reading all 5 character profiles, starting with Bianca's yesterday, will help!
*Note: I did a post last year before THE DUFF sold with quick profiles of the major characters to demonstrate how I write characters. Some of the information in these profiles differs from the ones I wrote a year ago. This is because, in edits and revisions, a few things changed and I got to know each character a little better. So if you are zooming through old post and notice inconsistancies, that's because those elements of the character evolved or changed through revisions, but these are the updated, final profiles. :-)
But, anyway, today we have the leading man of THE DUFF, and I can't wait for you guys to get to know him!
* * * Wesley Benjamin Rush * * *
Birthday: March 27
Grade: 12th, Senior
GPA: 3.95 (ranked 3rd in his class)
Theme Song: "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake or "Womanizer" by Britney Spears
Wesley Rush was born and raised in Hamilton. He has one sibling, a sister named Amy, and his parents are still married. Both are successful business people, which keeps them busy and traveling a lot. While Amy often stays with their paternal grandmother, Welsey stays on his own at his very large, very expensive house. (He is from one of the wealthiest families in Hamilton).
On the surface, Wesley seems like your typical slimy playboy - he really, really likes the ladies, and they really, really like him back. But here's what you may not know about Wesley: while he doesn't always advertise it, he's one of the smartest kids at Hamilton High School. He's ranked third in their graduating class. His best subject is History, most likely because, when he does watch television, he enjoys watching the History Channel.
Wesley loves James Bond movies. As a kid, and even still once in a while, he aspired to be James Bond when he grew up. He has a PlayStation 3, and he loves playing it. His favorite games are usually fighting games - SoulCaliber 4, for example - but he owns a variety. He also plays pool, and he's pretty freaking good at it.
Welsey's best friend is a boy named Harrison Carlyle. They've been friends since forth grade, and to this day, Harrison is the only person Wesley really trusts.
When he graduates, Wesley wants to study business. His goal is to open his own company and be one of the youngest, most poweful CEOs one day.
Appearance wise, Wesley is pretty freakin' hot. He's 6'2" and totally muscular. He has curly brown hair, gray eyes, and a sneaky little grin that drives Bianca nuts . . . in both good ways and bad.
I've had TONS of ideas for who might play Wesley, but I'm super duper picky with this boy. Because he's so hot and yet a little more complicated. But here's the best I've found yet.
And that's Wesley!
Stop by tomorrow to meet Bianca's BFF, Casey Blythe. :-)
