Who is Benn Northover? There are the bare facts: He was born 34 years ago in a small village on England’s east coast; he was diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age, but as a teenager found encouragement and inspiration from an art teacher who played him a recording of Ginsberg reading “Howl,” showed him Brando in On the Waterfront, and introduced him to the paintings of Jackson Pollock.
There is the self-invention: He left his hometown in his late teens and spiraled through film, art, and fashion circles in London, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles. And there is the conjecture that self-invention inevitably sparks: Does anyone know the whole story? When you self-invent, it’s customary for different people to get different bits. For instance, I like the bit about the black belt in Kuk Sool Won, the Korean martial art, but his fraternally close friend Jefferson Hack has never heard a whisper of Korean martial arts.
Among other things, Northover is an actor. He was in two Harry Potter movies. He is currently in a Zegna campaign. He is ardent about his fund-raising activities for Jonas Mekas and Anthology Film Archives. Those things are irrefutable. The rest would make an interesting movie. He could even play himself.
