Recently he announced his departure from Signal 23 TV and revealed he is joining the cast of Tyson Anthony’s Honest Men. However, it seems the good news does not stop there as Gary recently popped up in a hilarious commercial for Dollars for Strips. Check it out below!

1.Have you always wanted to be an actor? What’s been your favorite role?
Yes I’ve always wanted to be an actor ever since I had got into performing arts in high school. My favorite role as far a today would have to be playing the role of Justin in “Someday This Pain would be useful to you”. It was something different for me going in another direction as an actor.
2. How do you prepare for a role?

7. What is the biggest misconception people have about you?
Most people view me as a play boy that I don’t take relationship seriously, but if you know me you would understand that I take relationships serious as well as thrive. Not only just personal relationships but I take friendships very seriously too.

I’ve be seeing someone for quite sometime so I would label it as I’m taken.

I would have to say my eyes .

It’s time for a little trivia! You’ve watched them on your favorite web series, and even admired them from afar; but how much do you really know about your favorite Web Star? We’re starting off our weekly series with an oldie, but goodie, Brandon Karson, of About Him fame!

1. Have you always wanted to be an actor?

BK: Not at all. When I was younger, I wanted to be an attorney. Specifically a divorce/family attorney. That came from me talking debate and speech classes growing up.

2. What’s been your favorite role?

BK: I have to give it to my role on “About Him” as ‘Damien’. It touched so many people and it opened a lot of doors for me both in my professional and personal lives. However, the one that comes in close second would be me on BRTB TV’s “Triangle”, as ‘Logan’. I get to have so much fun with this character. From the filming process, to the amazing story line, I love being apart of the “Triangle” family.

3.How do you prepare for a role? 

BK: When I get the script for the first time, I read it three times: once for clarity on the story, another time for clarity of my role, and a final time to determine a character choice. Throughout all three of these initial reads, I’m remembering to gather other information I need to further clarify why my character is relevant to the story. I then breakdown the character by dissecting the character using the 5 W’s. From there, I then read for memory.

4. Who are biggest personal influences?

BK: More than anything, both my mother and my father. My mom has seen me through EVERYTHING, and sometimes she knows me more than I know myself. As for my father, we may had a more  sporadic relationship in the beginning. Now, we’re much, MUCH better. His journey taught me strength & perseverance. My mom’s taught me work hard and take nothing from no one.

5. How do you manage your personal and professional life?

BK: It’s quite the task, honestly. I try my best to stay off the radar when it comes to exposing certain things. So new business ventures and new personal connections, I’m keep them on the hush until I know everything is solid. All in all, it’s pretty tough, but I take it day by day.

6. What do you do in your downtime? Any hobbies?

BK: I write…a lot. From my thoughts, to random feelings of passion or frustration, the written word has become my best friend. I’ve also grown quite the liking to both fashion and fitness over the past five years. Indulging in them both helps me to decompress.

7. What is the biggest misconception people have about you?

BK: That I’m mean…and that I’m a “player”. I have a natural stank face in public sometimes, and I honestly don’t know until someone checks me behind it. With the whole “player” label, I want to be clear about one thing…when I’m single, I’m single. I’m a firm believer in multi-dating. I think it’s healthy. I’m vocal with EVERYONE I’ve ever dated about me talking to other guys. So I do think people choose to be upset and call me names.

8. Single, taken, or “it’s complicated?”

BK: I’m taken. Happily.

9. What do you think is your best physical feature?

BK: My Lips. They call them “soup coolers”.

10. Is there anything you don’t like about yourself, or feel you can work on?

BK: I can be really impatient sometimes. I can definitely work on that, and my listening skills. They’re more selective than I’d want them to be.

11. Last movie you saw

BK: “Fyre Fraud” Documentary on Hulu. AMAZING WATCH!

12. Your favorite web series

BK: When it’s on, SlayTV’s “Love at First Night”. Currently, it’s HereTV’s “#SingleManProblems”. 

13. Your favorite web star (you can’t pick yourself)

BK: One of my favorite on screen actors and such an amazing spirit, Donta Hensley. 

14. LGBTQIQA or straight?

BK: C’mon now…Lol.

15. Something you can’t live without

BK: Silk Pajamas…or silk anything for that matter.

16. Biggest pet peeve

BK: Bad Hygiene…it’s disrespectful.

17. Tell us something you’ve never told anyone

BK: I’m scared of being alone one day. Never finding real love, you know? I mean, I’m in a relationship now…but who knows what the future holds?

18. Age

BK: 25

19. Sign

BK: Scorpio

20. Quote to live by

BK: “You never win when you play dirty.” – NeNe Leakes

I’m am deeply saddened and disheartened by the heinous crimes against Jessie Smollett. To image something like this happening in 2019 is beyond me. We must stand against the hate that is consuming us as a country. Intolerance of any kind is unacceptable. This could have been anyone of us. Jessie has become another victim of what this country has become. My heart goes out to him, his family and loved ones.
