Gable’s official website revealed he embarked on a modeling career at age 5 and later studied at the New York Film Academy after completing his first film in Italy. While he was often compared to his famous grandfather, known as “the King of Hollywood” during his reign, Gable wanted to be recognized for his own work.
“Acting in films — It’s in my blood, and I really want to do it just like my grandfather,” he shared on his page. “But I don’t want to be compared to him in any way because I am different. I just happen to be born into these great circumstances, so I feel it gives me a great opportunity for what I want to do.”
