Character Interview: Malcolm Bissette

With the general release of Southern Charm 3 – On the Green, I thought a little change-up would help to give you insight into these characters. Please allow me to introduce one of the heroes of On the Green, sous chef, Malcolm Bissette.

Malcolm: *almost bounces on his toes in excitement* Hello from the sunny Florida Panhandle. Thank you to everyone for reading the story about this beautiful old building… okay.. okay. You're here for hot guy sex. *he winks*

ND: Behave yourself.

Malcolm: Or what. You'll sick Reece on me?

ND: You would like that wouldn't you… *rolls eyes* Back to the interview, please?

Malcolm: But you know everything about me.

ND: The readers don't. Let's start there. How about we start with your basics to get you warmed up before the nitty gritty, deep down questions?

Malcolm: Sure, I can do those.
Full name: Malcolm Bissette
Nickname: Mal or Captain Mal
Age: 26
Height: 5’7”
Weight: Not telling.
Hair color: Started out brunet, but depends on my whim. I prefer bright colored tips from blue, green, purple, or pink.
Eye color:  I think they're a boring deep brown.

ND: Do you have a job?

Mal: I do and I love my job. I'm the sous chef at Southern Delights under Chef Dakota Mitchell. Delights is the fabulous fresh food restaurant within the Southern Charm B&B.

ND: Tell us about your past and how you came to the Charm?

Mal: Due to issues I don't like to discuss, I was one of those many homeless GLBT teens on the streets. I wandered around Orlando, trying to survive. Meeting up with Dakota saved my life and he brought me to the Panhandle and the Charm. Thanks to him, I had a home, finished education, and got my life back together.

ND: I hear you're a huge fan of Firefly?

Mal: Captain Mal! Oh… The man is gorgeous. I cos-play him whenever I can. I have mastered his look. Whenever I'm down in the dumps, I pop in the series and veg on the couch.

ND: About Firefly, I have a question from a reader, TN. What would you say to the Fox executives that cancelled Firefly?

Mal: *laughs and rubs his hands together* How long do we have? Okay… *lifts an eyebrow* Really, what the hell were you thinking? Oh yeah, you weren't. You had a huuuuuuge hit on your hands, but you rather put on a show of people sitting in a house wired up the kazu and yelling at one another. Big whooping deal. Firefly had a soul, a heart, a following, and best of all.. it had a freaking story? Guys, come on. Time to get beyond the 'reality' crap and back to real television. Bring Firefly back! Bring Firefly back! Bring Firefly back!

ND: Okay. Okay. We get it. Is there someone else you think is just as gorgeous as Captain Mal?

Mal: *blushes* There is a certain landscaper, but he doesn't know I exist.

ND: Are you sure about that?

Mal: *tilts head*

ND: What's his name?

Mal: Reece Simpson. He's one of Dakota's best friends and owns a local landscaping business. Tall, broad shoulder, tanned golden from the sun, and loves to put his hands in the dirt. So outta my league. *sighs*

ND: Perhaps things could change. I have a question from a reader. May I?

Mal: Sure.

ND: This is from reader, Cheryl. Is that special chocolate cake you created your favorite food?

Mal: *laughs* Chocolate. The greatest stuff in the world. I'll take anything chocolate.

Thank you for talking with us, Malcolm.

Mal: You’re welcome. Bye everyone! Talk soon.

On the Green - Inspiration

Here are the inspiration pictures for On the Green:

Malcolm Bissette:

Reece Simpson:

Southern Charm 3: On the Green

Flashy, flamboyant Malcolm Bissette falls head-over-heels at sixteen when he sees the landscaper, Reece Simpson, after returning with Dakota Mitchell from Orlando and working at the Southern Delights. A decade passes while his crush grew, the man haunts his wet dreams, but there is no acknowledgment. With changes happening around the Charm, Reece is back, working to clear the overgrowth. Mal vows to forget everything he felt until Reece changes all the rules.

Catching sight of a certain sous chef, Reece stays away from the underage boy as he grows into a slender, flamboyant man. Preferring plants to people, he is quick and easy with relationships. Realizing he wastes five years thinking Mal is still a kid, Reece learns everything he can about his young adoration. He changes tactics, unwilling to let another man have him. Steadfast in work and life, he isn't sure about the unpredictable attitude of a chef, who changes hair color on a whim.

What will it be like to have Mal in bed? Would it make the summer afternoons even steamier?
