Greg Gale is a multitalented 21-year-old acting student from Corner Brook, Newfoundland. A graduate of Herdman Collegiate in Corner Brook and a former student in the Faculty of Arts at Memorial University, Greg has just completed his first year of drama studies at the National Theatre School of Canada (NTS) in Montreal. He will be starting his second year in the NTS three-year Acting Program in the fall of 2005.
Greg was involved in the Youth Theatre Program of Theatre Newfoundland Labrador for six years and appeared in local productions in the Corner Brook and Stephenville area. He also received vocal and dance training in Newfoundland. "Greg is everything you want in a young acting student - bright, audacious, generous, curious, sexy - a perfect balance of self worth and humility.and a great musician," says Bill Webster, teacher of classical text at the National Theatre School. "This young man is profoundly, startlingly gifted." The Hnatyshyn Foundation acting jury, composed of Jean-Louis Roux, Mieko Ouchi and Paul Lefebvre, noted Greg's restrained and nuanced performance in his audition selections from both the classical and contemporary repertoire.
"Good voice, good presence, high level of emotion. He is a bright, versatile, young talent destined to do very well as an actor."
