Born January 12, 1998, Nathan Gamble made his feature film debut in Babel (2006), for which he was nominated for a 2007 Young Artist Award.
Nathan was born in Tacoma, Washington, the son of theater directors who run a drama camp for children. His additional screen credits include Dry Rain (2007), Saving Sam (2007), Diggers (2007), The Mist (2007), The Dark Knight (2008), Marley & Me (2008), The Hole (2009), 25 Hill (2011), Dolphin Tale (2011) and Dolphin Tale 2 (2014).
Nathan didnít necessarily fudge his resume to snare the Sawyer role in "Dolphin Tale", but he neglected to tell the producers he had asthma before signing on. That mattered since he had to hold his breath in order to finish some underwater sequences.
He also wasnít a strong swimmer, but some pre-shoot training took care of that Ė even when he had to perform scenes wearing weights to make sure he sank effectively in the water.
"My favorite moment with Winter (The Dolphin in "Dolphin Tale") is just when itís me and her, underwater. Itís very calm, very peaceful. Itís just me and her and that cute whistle sound that she makes. Weíre just sort of in an embrace, a hug, and thereís nothing quite like that moment."
On television, Nathan appeared in Runaway in 2006; crossover episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Without a Trace in 2007; and House M.D. and Ghost Whisperer in 2008. In 2009, he played the role of Henry Pryor, son of the titular character in Hank. In 2010, he played the role of Daniel in a short film called Displaced; the film was commissioned by the city of Seattle as part of the Water Calling series and aired at Seattle Channel.
Nathan has completed filming the role of Poe Malloy in Captain Cook's Extraordinary Atlas for Warner Bros. Television.
"You know, there are a lot of things I like to do. I like to watch baseball and football and play those sports with my dad, that is something that I love doing. And, also, Iím not going to lie, Iím a huge gamer."
ďSome people donít like watching themselves in their movies. I watch everything [I do],Ē he says. ďWhat can I do better? I want to keep on progressing. I definitely think acting is a long process to be one of the greats like Morgan Freeman or Jack Nicholson. Iím sure they started out just like this Ö I hope.Ē
