Character Interview: Jesse from The Predicteds
Describe yourself in three words.
Oh, man. I hate questions like this. I sound like a conceited jerk if I say three positive things. And I sound like a loser if I say three dumb things. I’m going to let Daphne answer this one. She says sensitive, brave, and kind. See? Now I sound like a total wimp. Let’s change kind to manly and sensitive to burly. Doesn’t that sound better?
If it had been anyone else in the closet on the day of the shooting, would you have still tried to protect them, or was it specifically Daphne?
There’s no way I could stand by and do nothing in a situation like that, no matter who was in the closet. I’m just glad I was there to help.
When you first found out your school was going to be tested for PROFILE, what was your reaction? What about when you were predicted?
I knew it was a bad idea. I was just surprised that more people didn’t speak up. People just accepted it without even questioning the implications. Even my dad didn’t really react. Until he found out I was predicted. When I found out, I didn’t care what anybody else thought, except Daphne. What she thinks matters a lot to me. Her opinion is most important.
Boxers or briefs?
I’m far too modest to answer that. Nah, not really. Boxers.
What's it like to kiss Daphne?
Sorry, I don’t kiss and tell.
What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?
Probably peanut butter, but if I was a peanut butter cookie, I couldn’t be answering this question, could I? It’s quite a dilemma.
Thank you, Jesse, and congrats Christine!
