Gale Harold was raised in Atlanta, Georgia, by his father, who worked as an engineer, and his mother, who was a real estate agent – both of them were Pentecostals, so he hails from a very religious family; however, he left the church at the age of 15. Gale attended both The Lovett School and South West Dekalb High School, after which he enrolled on a soccer scholarship at the American University in Washington, DC, spending there just a few months after which he decided to transfer to the San Francisco Art Institute to study photography. In 1997, he moved to Los Angeles, California, and when he was 28 years old, he joined the Actors Conservatory Program with the classical theater company A Noise Within, where he made his debut starring in the production “Me And My Friends”, by Gillian Plowman.
Right after graduation in 2000, Gale’s professional career on the big screen began, as he won the role of Brian Kinney in the TV series “Queer As Folk”, which lasted until 2005. He also had several other roles in such film and TV titles such as “Street Time” (2003), “Wake” (2003), and “Life On The Ledge” (2005) among others, all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth. When the series ended, Gale won the role of Peter Bacanovic in the 2005 film “Martha Behind Bars”, as well as the role of Harold in the film “The Unseen” in the same year. In 2006, Gale continued to line up success after success, appearing in the role of Andrew Barrington Jr. in the film “Falling For Grace”, and guest-starring in “The Unit”, and “Deadwood”. During the same year, he was chosen to portray Agent Graham Kelton in the TV series “Vanished”, and by the end of the decade, Gale had also starred in “Grey’s Anatomy” (2007), and won the role of Jackson Braddock in “Desperate Housewives” (2008-2009), starring alongside Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, and Teri Hatcher in the lead roles, which also increased his net worth by a large margin.

Criticism is a surreal state, like a good drug gone bad. When it's bad you wish it would stop, and when it's good, you can't get enough.
Be yourself. Kiss well and passionately, and move like you mean it.
Men have been watching women make love to each other in magazines and films, forever. If you're sexually attracted to men, it stands to reason that you might like to see two men in a sexual situation. It's a real baseline dynamic! And it changes the power struggle, because women never got to see that. That's a bizarre sociological result of the show [Queer as Folk (2000)].
I'm more interested in the quality of the work than its medium.
If anyone can crack the publicity nut and figure out how to not come across hammy and contrived, I'd love to talk to them.
I mean, let's face it, it's 2000 and people are beginning to wake up on some level. I think that, as I was saying earlier, there's just no denying the impact that showing people the truth can have. It allows people to understand themselves, and when you understand yourself you can understand the people around you. And then you can begin to let go of all the bullshit that leads into things like world wars, racism, stereotypes, and bigotry.
You are preparing yourself for a scene, and the most important thing is to remain emotionally available and remain in the moment with your scene partner. You don't want to let your own self-consciousness block the flow of creativity that's coming out so that you can act and react, and play what the scene is all about.
I think it's good that men are being objectified because since forever women have been objectified. We're flipping the coin because things have been lopsided on TV and film for so long. Another good point to the show is that it portrays men's sensuality. They're not just all about sex and only sex.
You have to like your character, because if you don't, no one else will either.
