“I wasn’t just born to do this… I was FORMED to do this.” – Joseph Gray
Growing up in the middle of the East Coast as the son of an Electrical Designer & a Teacher, chasing his dream of being a professional actor didn’t seem like an idea that made any sense at all! But, after years of soul-searching & prayerful consideration, Joseph could no longer avoid this passionate calling he felt to pursue a career in filmmaking… Once the realization was made, Joseph immersed himself in training & devoted every bit of time & energy he could to developing this art. He immediately began studying at the Actor’s Group – a rigorous training studio in North Carolina, which teaches “Method” acting. It was here that he learned to focus on the subtle nuances, raw emotions, and fine details that are required to move an audience. As Joseph became adept in this natural yet captivating methodology, he quickly began booking an array of characters in Television, Commercials & Films.
Some of Joseph’s episodic TV bookings include Guest roles on NBC’s Revolution, Lifetime Network’s Drop Dead Diva & the CW’s The Originals. He also played a supporting role in the National Geographic Channel’s record-breaking TV Movie Killing Kennedy; which, amongst other accolades, was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award. Joseph has secured numerous roles in films as well. Notably, his portrayal of John, a principal role in the Academy Award nominated film Alone, Yet Not Alone, is slated for it’s official theatrical release this coming June.
Joseph gladly welcomes roles that require athleticism and physicality, so it’s no surprise that one of the things he enjoys doing in his free time is staying active. But, as of late, his free time is incredibly limited. Joseph and his loving bride of thirteen years are quite busy these days raising their beautiful young daughter. This experience as a father has expanded his resume even further, to include proficiency in the following skills: singing lullabies for hours on end without stopping, professional-level swaddling, master napper, producing an infinite number of hugs & kisses, becoming the tickle monster, snuggle / cuddle aficionado and other such related expertise.
