Blasting News (BN): You come from a family of actors. When did you know that you wanted to be an actress?

Gabrielle Stone (GS): I always thought I wanted to be an actress. I grew up watching my parents in films and being with them on set. It wasn't until I did my fist film that I realized it was what I wanted to do too.

BN: Are there any genres that you really love to work in? If so, which ones and why?

GS: I don't have a favorite genre, I just look for good roles and good material. I just finished a comedy that I had an absolute blast on.

I've done my fair share of horror films, and I always love a good drama.

BN: How did you come to appear in “Stray”?

GS: A friend of the directors happened to be the composer on an earlier film I had done and recommended me to her. She saw my demo reel and sent me the script.

BN: How would you describe this film?

GS: It's a tragic love story with some layers of thrill and heartbreak. The complexities of the characters are great to watch on screen.

BN: Would you consider this to be a personal story?

GS: I think the story itself is very personal.

The reality in some of the relationships and situations rang true to me as an actress and I feel like a lot of people will connect with that. Even with the heightened stakes and situations.
