Doing it for Namibia

Rowan Summers shares his experiences of being on the Bad Boys 3 movie set.

03 May 2019 | Art and Entertainment

The illusion has always been that the battle takes place in the land of the brave but that is not always true. Some artistic battles happen elsewhere and those battles cannot be overlooked or be recognised as less important. Such is the example of model Rowan Summers who has been flying the Namibian flag high. He was recently on set of Bad Boys 3 and it is impossible for tjil not to give a damn or not feel proud about it. tjil caught up with him and this is what he had to share.

tjil (t): You recently took to Instagram expressing your excitement for having the opportunity to work on Bad Boys 3, what was your role in this production?

Rowan Summers (RS): I was Will Smith's double. I had to do exactly what he did in order for production to adjust the lights and position the cameras perfectly so that when Will and Martin arrive on set, everything is close to perfect to shoot.



t: How did the opportunity to be a part of Bad Boys 3 come about?

RS: Since my arrival in Mexico City, I have been working as an extra to gain experience in the acting industry and after months of hard work, an agency with the name of Toledo called me to see if I was available for the call back of this job. I went to the call back and booked the job.



t: Describe working and being on set with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence?

RS: It was somewhat unbelievable, incredible, nerve-wracking, inspirational, astonishing and fulfilling. The moment they arrived on set, I was graced with the feeling of victory that nothing is impossible if you set your heart and mind to it. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence were super chilled as well, very humble and friendly with everyone. It was a life-changing experience.



t: What does this opportunity means to you and your career?

RS: It means a lot to me and my career because my philosophy is that you are only as good as your last job, so this now means that my next job have to be something greater than this and I am up for the challenge, because you actually do attract what you want to become.



t: What is next for Rowan Summers?

RS: That is a question that does not have a definite answer but I keep on surprising myself with the opportunities I am receiving so all I can say is 'Watch this space as there is more to come'.
