Revenge’s Gabriel Mann Spills About His Modeling Days — And Always Being Drunk on the Runway!
At the ripe old age of 40 (yes, you read that correctly), Revenge actor Gabriel Mann built quite the career before hitting the Hamptons’ sandy beaches.
In fact, the sexy sidekick used to be a professional runway model! He was happy to reflect on his former career at this year’s New York Fashion Week.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Gabe admitted to rarely walking the runway sober.
“The memories of [modeling] were too much Champagne prior to, and then finally I was, like, ‘What does it feel like to do a show stone-cold sober? Because I want to remember this moment for the rest of my life,’” he said.
After deciding to try out one show completely sober, the actor realized what made him turn to the booze.
“I was, like, ‘Oh, this is why you drink.’ It’s nerve-racking,” he said. “If stone-cold sober, for some reason I forgot how to walk. Just, it’s easier to walk with a cocktail.”
Fortunately, Gabe found that the catwalk limited his urge to express himself and eventually turned to acting.
“You can’t keep this guy on a f—ing runway,” co-star Josh Bowman said. “So he’s on a hit TV show.”
