So, I know you already accepted an answer, but I want to to put this in for other people's future reference.
I work as a creative (graphic/web development) and I have a fully designed resume. I have a small "About me" section on my resume that has this little blurb of text:
Hi! I’m Name, a hybrid graphic designer and front-end web developer living in City. I'm a 70s muscle car fanatic who loves to work with his hands, ask me about my Roadrunner!
When I got hired by my company, this was one of the things they brought up. They have never seen it on resumes before, but loved that I included a little 'personality' to my resume/CV. Sure enough, they asked me about my personal hobbies related to this.
I've been here a year and a couple months now and my manager disclosed that the combination of portfolio, designed resume and my personality is what moved my to the top of the list.
I lived in a city 9 hours away from where I am now, they only impression of me they had was based off the colors of my resume and that little block of text on it.
In short, it probably is directly related to the field you are in, but I don't think showing a little 'outside of work' personality is a bad thing either. Especially if you are applying for a place where you can't meet them in person easily.
I also don't think having a little different of a resume is going to penalize you, most people take the first template from a resume generator anyways. Might as well use it to stand out a little.
