Plus, he has an artistic side.

The Kings of Summer actor is a talented illustrator and musician.

"I’m an artist. So if acting doesn’t work out, which I hope it does, I’m probably going to go into graphic design or something like that," he told Interview Magazine in 2011. "And I’ve always been into music; I’ve played violin for nine years. I love sports — if I’m not acting, I’m probably doing sports. I wish I could play the World Cup, that’s one of my dreams. But if acting doesn’t work out, I guess I have a lot of things going for me that I’d have to go to college for."

His former co-star Keanu Reeves bought his artwork and hung up some of Gabriel's pieces in his house. On Instagram, Gabriel remarked, "My art officially adorns the halls of a legend. Much love to this man for trusting me with a pen."
