Mini Bio (1)
Gray Ellis was born in Alexandria Virginia. He lived the majority of his life within the Washington DC area with his Mother, Father and his two little brothers. Before adopting the stage name "Gray Ellis" he went by his legal name Dominique Ellis. The now 24 year old Actor wasn't always one who lived for the spot light. Gray attended various local schools within the Nations Capital such as Morningside Elementary, Andrew Jackson Middle School, Forestville Military Academy, Prince Georges Community College and the University of Maryland. Still young and unsure of his true Career, Gray jumped from Graphic Design to Criminal Justice searching for his destiny. Gray Ellis caught the "Acting Bug" over a Summer Church Retreat Film in which he featured as an extra. He loved the creativity of working on camera with others and wanted more. At the age of 22, he ran into a friend between classes at his College that would change his life forever. Gray's friend suggested a few auditions that he should look into to get started. He found himself many days just harassing friends on campus to do mini scenes so that he could better familiarize himself with developing technique and craft. He soon received his first invite for an film audition at Howard University named Class Act (2012). Nervous, unsure and shy, Gray attended the audition with many questions about himself still looming. He then found out in later weeks that he had been casted for the lead role of the film. Gray had a fortune that not many talents experience achieving on their first audition. Viewing a supported cast that outweighed him in credits, Gray surprisingly did not let that intimidate him. He in fact gained respect and trust of carrying the film quickly from his cast. This instilled a confidence within Gray that was born earlier than expected. Gray set fire to the local Washington DC Film Industry, landing fifth-teen credits during a nine month span. A few credits to be named but not limited to are, Fang (2011), Lovely Molly (2011), The Serpents Tongue (2011), Class Act (2012) , Abandoned (2010), and many others. In January 2011 Gray finally decided it was time to join the Union. On January 25th 2011 Gray Ellis officially signed as a AFTRA Talent.
Understanding the magnitude of becoming a professional talent, he soon began to look for a mainstream market in which he could work towards becoming a Academy Award Winning Talent. After great debate between relocating to New York and Los Angeles, Gray decided he would take his talent too Los Angeles to pursue his Film Career as a Professional Actor. With only twenty dollars in his pocket, Gray quickly boarded his South West flight to embark on the newest chapter of his Career. Since reaching Los Angeles Gray has done prime time credits such as Hart of Dixie (2011); Prime Suspect (2011); Boardwalk Empire (2011); Ringer (2011); Good Christian Belles (2012); Gangster Squad (2012); Dark Knight Rises (2012). Gray Ellis has also recently started up his first production company Motion View Productions LLC showing his versatility both in-front and behind the camera. With only six-teen months under his belt, this 24 year old Actor is definitely someone to keep close watch on. Gray is also taking training at the Stella Adler Academy in Hollywood Los Angeles, Gray Ellis is a dedicated and passionate as they come. He studies closely under the craft and technique of Denzel Washington and Will Smith, combining both charm and comedy with dramatic deliverance. The now SAG-AFTRA Actor, Gray Ellis is truly a talent that will be apart of our Industry World of Entertainment for many more years to come.
