“To Love At All Is To Be Vulnerable”. If there is a quote Gavin lives by, it is un- doubtedly that. Proudly posted on his In- stagram account which boasts a total of 2.1 million followers, the actor and social media influencer can currently be seen in Amazon Prime Video’s “The Summer I Turned Pretty”. When he is not on set, he can be found creating content for his 3.1 followers and TikTok and it is easy to see why he describes himself as your friendly neighborhood golden retriever.

Share with us the moment you knew you wanted to become an actor.

I was doing my first ever commercial for a (what used to be top of the line) Sony camera, and I remember they just told me to be me and have fun, and I was like hey… I could do this for the rest of my life!!

Do you have any interest in zodiac signs and understanding them? Explain. (Whether it is yes or no) – This is the Zodiac issue…

No, unfortunately I’m not too educated on them!

Tell us about any upcoming projects. How has acting played a part in gaining a better understanding of yourself and others?

Honestly, I think playing Jeremiah al- lowed me to pull a lot from my past and I was able to work through past experienc- es during scenes! Jeremiah and I are very similar in a lot of ways and I’m blessed to have played a character that helped me understand myself and learn even more.

What is your favorite quote you came across?

“To Love at all is to be vulnerable” – CS lewis

What do you hope to accomplish in the near future?

Honestly, I’m really looking forward to season 2 and who knows after that. But I do thoroughly enjoy a good romance movie, just like silver lining playbook, before I fall, or spectacular now. So who knows, maybe in the future I’ll be explor- ing more of that route!!!
