5 MORE Fast Facts about actor Gabe Silva
Gabriel L. Silva started acting in school plays in his hometown of Houston, TX. He began acting and modeling classes at the Page Parkes Center for Acting and Modeling, continuing to mature in his craft through one-on-one coaching. Gabriel has shared the big screen with Hollywood A-listers such as Ben Affleck and Zoe Saldana in Live By Night. He also got the opportunity to fly high in an exhilarating escape from Rodan alongside Elizabeth Ludlow, Anthony Ramos, and O’Shea Jackson in the 2019 box office hit, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Aside from acting, Gabriel models for Atlanta clothing brand, FadeLife Clothing. Additionally, he was the first male face for Australian skin-care line, Luv Ur Skin. Most recently, Gabriel has started a podcast, Just Talk With Gabe, that is available on most platforms and streamed in 22 different countries. Recently, Gabriel won the 2021 Young Artist Academy™ Award for Outstanding Podcast Host.
As a compliment to JTWG, Gabriel is directing and hosting his first mini TV series/talk show, Behind The Mic, to catch up with past guests. If Gabriel’s schedule was not busy enough, he has also taken on the challenge of becoming a budding entrepreneur, taking action against the social injustices of bullying with Action Magazine.
In his free time, Gabriel likes to do the same things that many kids his age love. He plays tons of video games, is an avid chess player, listens to music, watches movies and television, plays with his dog and spends all the time that he can with his family and friends. Gabriel hopes to continue acting with the desire to one day produce and direct even more projects that will bring his creative visions to life. Gabriel has made progress towards this goal with the release of his debut short film, “Gemini“.
He’s been busy since his last feature with TWK!
Since my last interview back in 2020, I have been focusing on my podcast, Just Talk With Gabe, continuing to audition, and I released my first directorial debut, a short named, “Gemini.” I also graduated high school, shout-out to class of ’23, and finally decided on where I am headed next.
He still stans doing his own stunts (who wouldn’t?)
I know that I said this the last time but doing my own stunts while working on Godzilla: King of the Monsters was really awesome. I think that being able to accomplish something that I’d never done before and push myself to the limit, allowed me to see myself on another level professionally.
He is very focused on producing content.
If someone gave me $100,000 dollars to start a business, I would definitely invest it in my own production company. I want to be able to tell stories from behind the camera and mic that gives people a few hours of entertainment.
He loves learning about people.
I think the thing that I enjoy the most about interviewing people on my podcast is having the opportunity to have my guests tell their own stories. It is very interesting to learn about everyone’s journey from their first-hand accounts. You get to know more about a person when you just listen.
His favorite current streaming show is:
HBO’s The Last of Us is the top watch on my list because it is really cool how they managed to transition it from a video game into a television series. I cannot wait until season 2 is ready to watch.
