Gabriel Luna Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Gabriel was born on 5 December 1982, in Austin, Texas, USA, the son of Gabriel Lopez Luna and Deborah Ann (nee Perez). His father died three months before Gabriel’s birth, so his mother raised him; she was just 15 years old when she gave birth to him.

He went to Crocket High School, during which time he was a captain of the high school football team. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at the private St. Edward’s University in Austin, from which he graduated with a degree in drama.

In 2011, Gabriel had a supporting role in the award-winning biopic “Bernie”, directed by Richard Linklater, starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey. The film centers on a relationship between a mortician and a widow, who becomes too controlling, and he does everything to separate himself from her grasp.
