Gale Harold turns 42 today!
By Greg Hernandez
Once a year, I get an email from a reader in Spain named Rosa Maria Garcia reminding me that it is Gale Harold’sbirthday and she includes a summary of what the actor has been doing lately professionally.
I hope Gale, who turns 42 today, realizes what loyalty he inspires!
Queer as Folk brought Gale legions of loyal fans who have followed him through his subsequent TV roles including the lead role of Special Agent Graham Kelton in the short-lived FOX series Vanished, guest spots on Deadwood, The Unit, and Grey’s Anatomy on which he played a paramedic and white supremacist with a swastika tattooed on his abdomen, who is injured in an ambulance crash.
Gale joined the cast of Desperate Housewives on the fourth season finale May 18, 2008 as Susan’s love interest Jackson but his run was interrupted by a serious motorcycle accident. He returned to the show after he recovered then later his character was written out.
Next up for Gale was a role as a law professor in the CW series Hellcats which was not renewed for a second season. Instead, Gale will appear in another CW series called The Secret Circle.
Maria points out that Gale has three movies in the can: Rehab, Low Fidelity and Fertile Ground and has been doing theater including Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays with Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Like a Dog in Space at the Young Playwrights Festival.
Happy birthday to this wonderful actor and thanks again for the reminder Maria!
