Gene, who’s been a part of the television series “S.W.A.T.” as a stunt double tells Discovered that actors can get away when they don’t have a particular skill set, but for the stunt performer, it’s all about having that skill set, and that’s what inspired him to learn more skills and continue on the path to becoming an actor & stunt performer.
Multi-talented & gorgeous looking, Gene jokingly tells us that his creative process is “getting it done”. Passionate about creating fantasy, sci-fi, and action comedies, Gene says that he feels his creative process is fueled by the characters in certain situations in which first there’s a serious tone, then there’s a comedic tone and then there’s action, and then it is just combined all together.

According to Gene, if you put effort into your work, learn your craft, watch stuff, research, experiment, try different things, etc. then it will surely pay off. Gene says you need to just start creating, find things that you like, reenact them, and see how it went…that’s how you learn & grow.
