Mini Bio (1)

Gregor Collins is an actor, author, scriptwriter and producer best known for his starring roles in the indie films Night Before the Wedding (2009) and Goodbye Promise (2012), and for his acclaimed memoir "The Accidental Caregiver", which made its stage debut on January 26, 2015 at the Robert Moss Theater in New York City.

Gregor's first job in entertainment was in 1996 in Miami, Florida working as a PA for Caspar Weinberger's World Business Review (1996). After graduating from Florida State with a BA in Media Production, he moved to Los Angeles and produced reality television shows such as Ripley's Believe It or Not! (1999) and E! Live from the Red Carpet: Countdown to the 2003 Primetime Emmy Awards (2003).

After four years in reality he decided to pursue a career in acting and writing.

Since then he's written, acted in and/or produced various independent features, including 2012's critically acclaimed improvised film Goodbye Promise (2012), which the LA Times called "a visually alert, enormously well-observed film that deftly captures Hollywood heartbreak," giving credit to Collins' "appealing and affecting" performance.

Legendary Producer Fred Roos said this about Goodbye Promise (2012): "On a micro budget, Filmmaker David Branin and Actor Gregor Collins have created a perceptive and touching portrait of the lives of struggling actors working on the fringes of Hollywood."

In 2008, after a chance meeting with a renowned Holocaust refugee named Maria Altmann, Collins became her caregiver for the last three years of her life. In 2012 he published a book about his unique experience called "The Accidental Caregiver," which subsequently became a bestseller on Amazon.
