Just when we thought the world of Web Series had settled a little, some rather shocking news came our way. We have to admit this one comes as not only a shocker, but was completely unexpected…

Actor, and Web Star, Gary Lavard, has parted ways with Signal 23 TV!

 

When it comes to Web Stars, Gary can be pretty much considered the Beyonce of their world. His look, skill, acting, and charm makes him the rising star so many of them aspire to be. Still, most of his work has been done under the umbrella of Signal 23 TV as practically the face of their brand.

As you recall, he played the role of “Vince,” on the first season of About Him. He alongside, Brandon Karson, Rico Pruitt, and Rahim Brazil were all the breakout stars. In the second season, About Him: The Revolution, he starred as “Dustin,” alongside Chris June. He also made an appearance in Signal 23 TV’s latest series, Kingdom Heights.

Gary provided us with an official letter to the fans who have supported him during this process. Check it out below:

We are not sure what Gary’s next move is, but we can deny the rumor that he is moving on to Bawn TV to join the cast of H.I.M. for the upcoming season. As he informs us, “Naw no plans to…I’m just wanting a peaceful exit brother…” In the meantime you can catch him in Signal 23 TV’s latest movie, The Big Gay Hangover; which we assume was his final project with him. We wonder what the differences were between him and the network. Nevertheless, we wish both parties the best.

Whatever Gary decides to do we know it will be done with class, finesse, and professionalism. After all, this is a man who has all the qualities to be a true leading man and mainstream star. We have already caught him on The Fate of The Furious and Greenleaf, and we just know it is only up for him. Don’t worry, we will keep you posted on Mr. Lavard’s upcoming projects!

In the meantime, catch him this Tuesday night on WTT Radio’s Currently Mikey w/ Rocc from 7-9 PM EST. Click here  to download the app or you won’t be able to listen in! We love you Gary!

We are definitely fans of BREATHE! The show is not only well written and acted, but visually it is stunning too. The Sun decided to make a rare winter appearance this past Sunday, and coincidentally Trey Love and Freshie were coming through Atlanta for a little fun and work. Our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning managed to grab an interview with the two of them at one of Atlanta’s hottest brunch spots, Two Urban Licks.

Caleb Perry

caleb perryKnowing who you are and where you are going are two of the most invaluable tools to have in any game of life. Singer and actor, Caleb Perry, is definitely winning since he has both in copious amounts. We came across Caleb courtesy of Rahim Brazil’s Twisted where he plays the role of “Alex,” a street hustler determined to care for his older brother. Caleb knocks this role out the park, but it is his music that really has us tantalized. Check out his single, Nothing But Love from his EP, To the Top–you’ll find yourself baby making–or at least practicing to make one when you hear it!

Davien Harlis

davien harlisIt is rare when anyone can say a year and been “their year.” However, for Davien Harlis this has definitely been the case as 2017 tipped her hat to this director and Web Star. His hit indie film Red Carpet, Hashtags, & Heartbreak is critically acclaimed and we are all clamoring for a sequel. Davien is a relative newbie to the Web World, but his sphere of influence has cultivated a full feature length film that was sold out both nights. If any hashtag suits this rising star and influencer, it is “Tastemaker!”
