My Life with the Walter Boys,” a series that has captivated a global audience, presented Gentry with the opportunity to portray Alex Walter, a character he was drawn to for his heartfelt qualities. Gentry’s method involves a holistic exploration of his characters, treating them as subjects to investigate rather than figures to create. This approach, along with Gentry’s willingness to adapt his habits to better understand Alex, highlights his dedication to his roles.

Despite being initially unfamiliar with the novel by Ali Novak from which the series is adapted, Gentry did not feel confined to a faithful portrayal of the character as described in the book. Instead, he sought to capture the essence of Alex while bringing his unique interpretation to the screen, an endeavor that became even more nuanced as he prepared for the series’ second season.

The on-screen dynamics between the Walter brothers, particularly with Noah LaLonde’s character, Cole, were enriched by off-screen bonding. Similarly, Gentry and Nikki Rodriguez, who plays Jackie, used their real-life camaraderie to deepen the evolving on-screen relationship between their characters.

Filming in picturesque Colorado, Gentry recounts memorable moments and the surreal beauty of the locations, expressing gratitude for the experiences the project brought him. The series’ success and the fan response have significantly impacted Gentry, both personally and professionally, marking a rapid rise in recognition and presenting new opportunities to support smaller projects.


Gentry cites Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as major influences on his acting and career trajectory, admiring Dafoe’s transformative abilities and Pattinson’s successful navigation of his career post-“Twilight.” Looking ahead, Gentry is excited about his role in “Mooch” and remains committed to appreciating the present, emphasizing the importance of staying true to oneself in the face of external pressures.
