YOU Tube sensation Gavin Free answered our questions this week and revealed his desire to become a stuntman

The slow motion cameraman, who was featured in last week’s Thame Gazette picked it out as his ideal career and also told how he liked to relax outside on a bed full of pillows.

What’s your earliest memory?

I remember being sat on a staircase and scared I would fall through one of the gaps.

What do you wish they’d taught you at school, but didn’t?

I wish I had the option to do Italian because I am half Italian and would have loved to speak to my granddad in his own language. I did five years of German instead – never been.

Ignore what you’re doing now - if you could do any job in the world, what would it be and why?

I would love to be a stuntman. The idea of jumping off buildings onto massive air cushions sounds like an extremely fun thing to be paid to do.

If you could pass one new law tomorrow, what would it be and why?

If someone talks on their phone in the cinema they have to refund the tickets of everyone else watching the film in that room.

If you were stuck on Death Row, what would you pick for your final meal?

Probably some sort of goat’s cheese tart. Wouldn’t make for a very fulfilling meal though so I would have to make it six goat’s cheese tarts.

And if you could come up with famous last words in advance, what would they be?

I wonder what will happen if I press this bu...

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

Teleportation. Anything to avoid long flights and being in traffic jams – it might make me fat and lazy though.

How do you relax?

When the weather is good outside I grab all the pillows and duvets I can find, make a pile on the grass and lie on them. Drink in hand, music in ears, sun on face. Perfect.

What’s your greatest fear?

I have no irrational fears but I am overly-paranoid about going blind. So sharp objects near my face is a pretty huge fear.

What’s the most important lesson that life has taught you so far?

To make the most of everyone that is currently in your life that may not be in the near future.

If you could leap forward to the year 2050, what would you hope to find there?

Zero gravity pubs.

Favourite books of all time

I don’t think I have actually read any non-fiction since primary school. What was that one with Biff, Chip and Kipper? That was quality.

Favourite places to eat within 20 miles of Thame?

I like the English take on foreign food so I’ll say The Rising Sun in Thame for Thai, Pachanga in Marlow for Mexican and you can’t go wrong with Thame Tandoori for an Indian.

Which person in the public eye would you most like to meet and why?

Charlie Sheen. I want to see what it’s like to be bi-winning.

What do you go out of your way to avoid?

I avoid ketchup whenever I am offered it. People always look at me weird when I tell them I genuinely believe it is the ultimate food ruiner.

Always leave them laughing - so please tell us a joke

Like most people my age, I’m 22.
