Gabriel Olds

An appealing, baby-faced brown-haired actor who has shown his range with seemingly effortless portrayals of both gracious and complacent characters, Gabriel Olds racked up credits on stage, television and film, and gracefully resurfaced from such washouts as 1993's "Calendar Girl" (his film debut) and The WB's 2000 midseason series "D.C." (his first stint as a series regular). Olds began his professional career at age fifteen and quickly landed a starring role in "14 Going on 30" (ABC, 1988), a two-part "Disney Sunday Movie" presentation about a teen who speed ages and is mistaken for his school's new principal. In 1992, he took another teen-aimed role, starring in "Sexual Considerations," a topical "CBS Schoolbreak Special." A sinister role on an especially memorable episode of "Law & Order" (NBC) flexed Olds' acting muscles, playing an academic achiever who practices parental abuse and ultimately murders his father.
