Fil-Am Miguel Gabriel Shines in ‘Camera’

Miguel Gabriel is the newest Fil-Am actor in Hollywood.

Only 14 years old, Gabriel stars in an indie drama film, Camera, sharing billing with the multi-awarded Beau Bridges. Directed by Jay Silverman with screenplay by Jamie Murphy, Camera tells of Oscar, a young boy who is unable to speak, and his widowed mother Evelyn, as they start a new life in a small fishing village. 

A new kid in town, Oscar finds an unlikely friend in Eric (Beau), who owns a camera repair shop. A broken format film camera brought them together, 

Gabriel plays Oscar, a role he won after an audition with over 500 competitors all over the US. 

Gabriel, who started acting in theater at the age of 5, had a voice role in “Puss and Boots: The Last Wish,” and had also appeared on ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder.”

He is the son of Michele Uriarte,  a remarkable young woman who was my student in Basic Photography at the De La Salle University in 1985, in the same class as the late glamor photographer, Raymund Isaac. 

Soon after graduation, she moved to the US, worked as an entrepreneur, and married Gyorgyi Matrai, a Hungarian. Gabriel is Spanish-Filipino from his mother’s, and Hungarian on his father’s side.

Camera also stars Jessica Kennedy Parker, Bruce Davidson, Scott Tovar, Ross Partridge, Ayinde Horell, and Jorge Luis-Rallo.
