If you remember, we first met Gabriel L. Silva a few years ago when he shared the screen with A-lister’s Ben Affleck and Zoe Saldana, in the 2016 mafia probation hit movie, Live By Night. Since then, Silva has been helping to spread the word about anti-bullying through his own clothing line, Take Action Apparel & Gear, in addition to pursuing his love of acting.
Recently, it was announced that the talented teenager will return to the big screen in the upcoming predicted blockbuster, Godzilla, King of Monsters.
“I am very lucky to be able to pursue what I love to do. I got into acting as a result of being bullied for my size. I had no idea that I would like it, but I did. When I signed with one of my first agents, Kerri Glen, she told me that being smaller will help me to get more roles because I can play younger longer—I think that was the best thing that I had ever heard,” Silva previously commented in an exclusive statement to BCKOnline. “Having the opportunity to be a part of amazing projects with awesome directors, actors, and a lot of cool cast and crew, gives me the opportunity to push myself further than I have ever done before. I get the chance to grow as an actor. Every project is a new chance to learn. I am truly grateful and honored for having been given such unique opportunities.”
However, Silva’s acting adventures aren’t the only thing that this 13-year-old has been up to. Silva has, in addition to his own line, partnered with Atlanta-based clothing line, FadeLife Clothing and Pittsburg-based sunglasses company, Chilis Eyegear.
“It is cool when other brands want to grow with you. I am very excited about partnering with both brands for many years to come and look forward to sporting their style!”
If you haven’t seen the new Godzilla: King of Monsters trailer, check out the official trailer number two below. The new Godzilla will hit theaters May 31st. Make sure to follow Gabriel’s journey on Instagram. We have a feeling that this is just the beginning of much much more to come.
