The measure of greatness for a dedicated thespian – rests not in the presentation of awards, swanky red carpet events, or receiving a pat-on-the-back from one’s peers. Instead, it’s the ability to create connections that suspend reality while telling a story. More than anything else, it’s about having that…that—thing! It’s that certain ‘Je ne c’est quoi’ production companies often find bankable. And it’s also one of the key qualities for which ‘Gary A Wales’ is known and respected around the world (success).
As a highly motivated and tenacious Scottish Actor, it’s no surprise that Gary showed signs of promise early in his theatrical development (as early as age 6). After moving to County Armagh (Northern Ireland), his sense of timing and ability to deliver convincing performances were more than evident, and widely applauded by his social circle and theatrical pedagogues. Gary established himself through the pathway of community theatre, as a way of settling into what he would later offer the world (his drive for betterment, and unique display of brilliance). As those around him could attest, the sense of commitment to his craft soon gave rise to his involvement in local stage productions, TV programmes, shorts, films and commercial work; once again, attaching his love for his craft to his vision for success.
With professional credits that include: BBC, BFI and HBO, Gary’s early Performing Arts training at Southern Regional College has proven more valuable than anyone could have imagined (except the visionary himself). In 2016, he launched his clothing line – ‘GAW Clothing’ (specializing in Male & Female apparel), followed by the launch of his production company ‘GAW Films’, 2017. To give you more of an up-close look at this actor, producer and business man – we share a partial tweet dated August 5, 2018 (posted two months after his baptism at Journey Church – Norman, OK), that makes a statement about ‘who’ Gary is, and ‘what’ drives him to greatness … “I am who I am; I am what I am; I do what I do, and I ain’t never gonna do it any different…” At age 23, it seems he has it all; but, truth be told—he’s just getting warmed up! He’s young, talented, focused and incredibly driven; so, the question becomes … where does ‘Gary A Wales’ go from here? Well, as his story goes, he’s busy plotting the coordinates for a sail straight to the top. With the promise of ‘love’ and ‘good will’ woven into his personal brand, God standing by his side, and veins flooded with raw ambition – Gary A Wales is proving the sky is the limit to what he can have.
