Success isn't exclusive to those born into the industry; it's only for those who were born with it, which today's powerhouses can prove with a smile. All walks of life have achieved extraordinary things, including go-getters with nothing but a clear-cut dream. Among the must-watch figures in North America's media and entertainment scene, Eddie G. is a rising actor and one of the faces in the #1 hit drama Transplant. Aspiring for the stars, the highly inspirational celebrity hopes to make a bigger impact in the future.
The lack of opportunities in Eddie's hometown led him to leave. He overcame the barriers that prevented him from accomplishing his dreams despite the challenges inherent in trying to grow in such a barren land. As of right now, he's living proof that people can realize their fantasies when they put their hearts into it.
Along with dealing with some near-death experiences that strengthened his resilience, Eddie G. was forced to cope with the loss of his daughter. "The idea of losing my daughter before she was born really made me want to give it all up," he said. "But she pulled through, and so did I. I promised myself that she would witness me reach the level I have always set for myself."
Through overcoming all those odds and coming out stronger, Eddie G. continues to rise in the entertainment industry. With his broad range of skills, including scriptwriting and voicework, he has impressed industry peers and viewers alike. By writing and releasing music under the alias Erupt and becoming the co-founder of Creative Psychopaths, he has further demonstrated that he has more to offer.
So Eddie G., who is now represented by the Toronto-based agency, The Characters, has graced several shows and appeared on a number of platforms. Additionally, he has worked with Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. while playing a recurring character in the award-winning drama series Transplant.
Having big plans in mind, Eddie G. is not slowing down. Among his co-stars are Keifer Sutherland of 24 as well as Charles Dance from Game of Thrones and Meta Golding of Hunger Games in the upcoming spy series Rabbit Hole. "That's an accomplishment to me, and I have got more to do," he excitedly shared. "I grew up watching Keifer in some of my favorite films growing up like A Time to Kill and Phone Booth."
There is no doubt that Eddie G's future is filled with fiery passion and burning determination. While he inches closer to his goals, he also aims to guide others in the right direction. When asked what he wants to emphasize above anything else, he readily answered, "Don't follow your dream. Be your dream. Do your Googles. Plan it. Schedule it. Get it done like your life is ending tomorrow because it just might. No plan B. No excuses. Take the steps, do not skip any and enjoy the journey to get to that next level."
