Character Interview with Alonna Williams & Trevor Henderson
There's so much more to his creating process but I'll get into that another time, now just enjoy a brief interview with the one, the only, Trevor Henderson:
AW: Thank you so much for sitting down with us today Trevor
TH: You’re very welcome, thank you for having me
AW: So I just want to ask you a couple of questions, starting with: why the pirates life?
TH: Well, as you’ll read in The Journal of the RedSkull, I always was attracted to it, even as a child; and i just really needed to be free, you know from all the Fredrick drama and the heinous tea parties, the ‘Trevor, sit up straight and don’t speak unless someone is talking to you’ it was horrible in Manchester
AW: That’s understandable; but, you kind of strike everyone as a hard core high society boy, you know, prissy and delicate
TH: Oh dear, please don’t call me that; I do see where you’re coming from, yes, I had to learn a lot as I grew into the pirates life, for instance, I had to get up earlier than usual, I had to be treated as everyone else was treated, no special treatment or anything and I had to follow orders, a lot of people think oh, Pirates are disorderly but, that’s not the case, it is very orderly and you need to work as a team; I wasn’t born a team player but now, I’m becoming one
AW: Ah, I see, so were you afraid when you first boarded the Curly Casey?
TH: Haha, yes, I wasn’t sure if it was the right decision but, I managed to do it and when I was on there, I hate to admit this but yes, I was pretty scared
AW: With good reason; another thing I wanted to talk about, you seem to have a pretty nice relationship with your parents, but things can get pretty heated between you guys
TH: that’s very true, erm, I adore my mother and my father, they mean the world to me, but sometimes it just gets difficult trying to make them understand me and that hurts; there’s the case with Fredrick Hawkins, there’s the whole pirate case and how they lied to me which you’ll learn about in the Journal of the RedSkull and there’s the case of them trying to keep me off the sea when I was born to be on the sea, so I do love them more than anything, it’s just that they don’t really understand me sometimes and that’s not easy
AW: I see where you’re coming from; now, let me ask you Trevor… in the Journal of the RedSkull, you learn about your amazing history, what was it like finding out that, not only were you related to the famous RedSkull, but you looked almost identical to him?
TH: That was thrilling, it was shocking and scary but it was thrilling; because then I knew for sure that I was definitely born for this; but it did start to feel like a set back sometimes but… erm… you’ll see in book three Journey to my grandfather’s cove, or Journey to the RedSkull’s Cove haha, sorry
AW: Ah, I guess we’ll see; so in conclusion, what can we expect from you in the future Trevor?
TH: alot *smirks* The Journal of the RedSkull is coming out soon to be followed by The Skeleton Key, and then Journey to the RedSkull’s Cove; and rumour has it that there may be a modernized version of Pirates- The Lost Cove so stay tuned for that
AW: Thank you so much Mr. Henderson it was a pleasure
TH: The pleasure is all mines
