Actor Reviews

In addition to learning how to become better at our craft, we need to have someone to bounce our feelings off of to stay emotionally strong. Many times after a rough audition, we question ourselves and our abilities. Sometimes we have blocks and lulls during the audition and booking process. Sometimes we just need positive support to keep us in the game. Gary helps with all of that and is a strong source of support to all of us in the entertainment field.
Stephanie Aleksanyan, V.P. SmartActors
Gary Levingston is a high organized, motivated individual who leaves no detail uncovered. I loved having him on set - his positive energy radiated everywhere and was always quick to manage an issue before it became an issue - he is the ultimate problem solver. Gary is someone you want on your team - trustworthy, consistent, hard working and a bundle of fun!
Evita M. Castine, Emmy Award Winning Director
Gary has the ability to understand where you’re at in life with no judgments. He creates a step by step plan for healing and taking you wherever you want to go in life.
