Her Campus (HC): What was your first Vine like?

Gabriel Conte (GC): Oh wow, I don’t even remember my first Vine. Generally, the first ones were really weird, just being stupid and seeing what would happen.

HC: How do you get your ideas for Vines, YouTube videos, etc.?

GC: Honestly, a lot of them are from music and things that happen in real life.

HC: What sparked your passion for theatre, acting, Vine, etc.?

GC: I started theatre in middle school because of my brother. I thought I would give it a shot and I ended up loving it. I would always make silly videos with my friends when I was younger and when Vine came out I started making Vines and people started watching and enjoying them.

HC: How do you balance school and maintaining social media?

GC: Oh gosh, it’s really hard. Social media takes up a lot of my time. Especially making YouTube videos. Making videos on the regular is a pain in the butt. Pretty much any time I’m not in school, I’m doing social media.

HC: What’s your favorite fan experience?

GC: One time I was running through the crowd at an event and one of the girls just grabbed my butt really hard. I still don’t know who it was because I looked back and it was just a sea of fans.

HC: What brought you to FSU?

GC: The acting program.

HC: What’s your favorite thing about Florida State?

GC: The college spirit. I guess like the feeling when you’re at a football game.

HC: Where’s your favorite place to eat in Tallahassee?

GC: The Sweet Shop is pretty popping.

HC: What’s a fun fact about you/ something that most people don’t know?

GC: I’m not that interesting! I don’t know. I’m a Christian, but most people know that because I’m very open with it.

HC: Career goals?

GC: To become a working actor and entertainer.
