Gregory Robbins is a college student at Erie Community College. He’s following in his father’s footsteps, working as an actor and learning filmmaking. His credits include “Animal Action”, “Pastor Greg”, and “Superheroes Don’t Need Capes”.
What was it like growing up with a dad who was an actor?
I guess it was very normal growing up; my Dad never made a big deal about his job. I thought it was cool when he did “Animal Action” and I got to be around a lot of wildlife.
When did you first develop an interest in acting?
Acting has always been more like a hobby for me. My Dad auditioned my sister and me for “Pastor Greg” and he said we did a good job. It felt good so when he would ask me to play roles I did and had fun. I guess I was around 11 or 12 when my interest grew.
What was your first role?
My first role was in a stainmaster carpet commercial my Dad directed when I was a year old. The first role I remember playing was little Eddie in a flashback episode of “Animal Action” and I was 5-years-old.
What other filmmaking roles besides actor have you done?
I have operated a sound boom a lot and some camera work but I am not a pro at either yet. I also enjoy writing and I have been writing a movie series for a few years.

What has been your favorite film/tv project?
Playing HARLAN in “Superheroes Don’t Need Capes” was the biggest role I have had and the most fun. Harlan was a real guy and I wanted to get in his head and become him. My Dad has taught my sister and to convince ourselves that we are that person. I really got into being Harlan.
What are your filmmaking goals for the future?
I want to do action movies! I believe that there needs to be a shift in action films because they focus on negative and harmful situations that don’t send good messages. I am developing a movie series that will have action and a helpful message.
