EDEN Feature – Kevin P. Gabel

In order to let our audiences get to know some of the actors in EDEN better, we asked them to answer a few questions. It’s a bit like Inside the Actors Studio.

Since he was the quickest draw, in terms of replying, we’ll start with the youngest actor in the cast. Kevin P. Gabel plays Adam, the resistant hero of the play who is forced into a journey of self-discovery. Kevin told us he stayed up late toiling over the answers to these questions.

1. What is one thing every actor needs to know? How to listen.

2. What does every great story have to have? A question that needs answering.

3. What is your favourite word? “Groovy.

4. If I could grant you a single wish, what would it be? A truckload of grant money.

Complete the sentences:

5. If I wasn’t typing this email interview right now, I would be… looking at my script.

6. The most surprising thing that happened to me was… winning a watch for a random draw prize.

7. A common misconception of me is… people think I’m Jewish.

8. You know me as a actor but in truer life I’d have been… a dragon.

Some of Kevin’s stage credits include the University of Winnipeg’s production of Howard Barker’s The Possibilities and last year’s five-star Fringe Festival hit Brain Cravers: The Curse of Extollo. On film, he has appeared in Shelagh Carter’s debut feature Passionflower, as well as a number of short films including Deprivation, The Hell of It, and Rush Hour Paul. He is also the award-winning writer-director of such short films as The Projectionist, Lindsey, and The Drive Home. Kevin is currently studying in the University of Winnipeg honours acting program. The Drive Home was just nominated for 5 awards at the U of W Student Film Festival!
