GKM Welcomes Our Newest Family Member
Mattie is a survivor of China's "One Child Policy." Abandoned on the side of a road at the age of only 2 or 3 days, she was rescued and one of the beaurocrats saw something special and, by manipulating some documents, managed to get her into an international orphanage rather than the state-run version which would have condemned her to working in a factory when she turned six. Instead, when she was about one year old, she was paired with her American mom who has raised a dedicated, hardworking, and multi-talented daughter. Her mother is best friends with an established GKM client, Traci Godfrey. Traci introduced GKM to Mattie and her talent was immediately recognized. As young as Mattie is, she holds a degree in directing and editing and is tapping into her talent as an actress, and possibly, as a singer/rapper/writer musical artist (she is a musical theatre geek). Add to all that, she is undeniably adorable and cute and has the "Alt-Girl" thing down pat. She has tremendous range which is just beginning to be explored.
LEGEND IN THE MAKING - THE LEGACY CONTINUES:
GKM is proud to announce that REMINGTON MOSES has joined the GKM family. The first thing that caught my eye about This talented young woman was that she had graduated from The Strasberg Institute at NYU. She's a serious actor and her video demonstrates some serious skills. Then, I noticed, she is now a PROFESSOR at NYU Tisch/LEE STRASBERG INSTITUTE where had been a student. That's a fabulous accomplishment. But then, what an amazing bonus is that she is the daughter of well-known actress, TRACY NELSON ("Melrose Place," "Father Dowling Mysteries," much more), and WILLIAM MOSES ("Falcon Crest," much more). To continue the interesting theme, she is the granddaughter of pop idol, RICKY NELSON. It follows (or precedes) that her great grandparents are the legends OZZIE & HARRIET. As if that was not enough, her uncles are the twins, MATTHEW and GUNNAR, that formed the 80s rock group, NELSON. And, just a little extra, her great uncle is MARK HARMON ("NCIS"). There's even more than that. So, acting is very much in her blood as there are entertainment legends in 3 previous generations. It is my honor to help her continue the family tradition.
TIARA PARKER-RAGLAND has returned after taking a hiatus. She spent a few years behind the camera and gained very valuable knowledge and experience as a line director and producer for short films, industrials, documentaries, and films.
In her first go-round she was on "How I Met Your Moether," "CSI: NY," "Shark," "Pandemic," "Mind of Mencia," "Desperate Housewives," and "Murder In The First," among others. Now, she's shot a couple of other projects, including, "General Hospital," and some things we can not mention yet. She is actually more beautiful (and, of course, more experienced and nuanced) than 10 years ago when she made her feature film debut on "Alvin and the Chipmunks," "Drive," and "Crazy, Stupid, Love."
The best is yet to come. I mean, just look at her. You can see charisma and strength.
This is a GKM record-smasher.
After 22 years away, GKM welcomes the return of
A former daytime star and lead in a Hallmark Adventure Pilot ("Braxton"), and
guest star appearances on network TV, Patrick took a long break from
film and TV to follow two loves: theatre, and his family ranch in Idaho.
But, now, with a new and refreshed perspective, it's time to return to
TV and film and we are stoked to have him back in the game.
PLEASE WELCOME TRACI GODFREY
TRACI is a veteran actor, starting early with THE SOPRANOS, dozens of eppys on AS THE WORLD TURNS, 4 versions of GRAND THEFT AUTO (among other credits) and many episodes over an 8 year span on LAW & ORDER: CI as Detective Agnes Farley. She has also had an extensive career as a voice-over artist. A fitness guru, she has a series of of audio instructionals called SOUNDBODY. She took time off for personal reasons and GKM was fortunate enough to have her join our family when she decided it was time to get back in the game.
TRACI signed with GKM days prior to the shutdown. Almost as soon as the COVID 19 "curtain" was removed, TRACI booked her first job as a GKM family member. It's for an episode of a new show on a major outlet with a major producer. I guess you can figure out we are not allowed to divulge any info. But, it's 3-4 weeks worth of work over several locations. WAY TO GO, TRACI!
After four-and-a-half years away, GKM welcomes back
former Series Regular/Trainer for
NBC-TV'S "THE BIGGEST LOSER,"
Two-Time Golden Gloves Boxing Champion,
TWICE EMMY-NOMINATED JENNIFER BASSEY
Until recently, GKM had the honor to be representing Twice Emmy Award-nominated JENNIFER BASSEY. Jennifer Bassey became a contract player on ABC TV's "ALL MY CHILDREN" in the summer of 1998, after having portrayed borderline nymphomaniac "Marian Colby," since the early eighties.
Jennifer was born in Chicago. Her first job in entertainment was as a singing Playboy bunny in the very first Playboy Club. She left her bunny ears behind and was accepted into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she got the lowest entrance marks in the history of the academy. Three years later, she graduated from the RADA with honors, finishing just below classmate and future Academy Award-winner, Sir Anthony Hopkins. Jennifer went on to the Big Apple, where she appeared in several Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Some of which included Neil Simon's "California Suite," "Not Now Darling," directed by George Abbot, "In Praise of Love" with Rex Harrison and "The Homecoming" (The Original Royal Shakespeare Production).
Her most recent off-Broadway credits include Moliere's "Tartuffe" and Wendy Wasserstein's "Isn't It Romantic," both staged at the Tribeca Playhouse. Prior off-Broadway appearances included playing "Katherine" in "The Taming of the Shrew" at the Roundabout Theatre, "Lady Macbeth" in "Macbeth" at the Stratford Theatre and "Love Letters," in which she co-starred with Ken Kercheval.
In 1983, Miss Bassey won the role of "Marian Colby" on "All My Children," initially signing for a five-month stint. Due to the incredible popularity of her character, she became a Contract Player and spent decades on the stalwart daytime drama.
Beyond her other dramatic successes, she has enjoyed a flourishing film career that includes such feature films as "Waxwork, Twogether," which also featured both the performing and directing talents of Nick Cassavetes, and "Dunston Checks In" where in a scene-stealing, skin-revealing moment, she received an orgasmic massage from an orangutan! Jennifer has achieved prime-time success, most recently as a Guest Star on "Law & Order," "30 Rock," Grey's Academy," and a recent arc in a return to Daytime in "General Hospital," among many other primetime shows.
In addition to her Two Emmy nominations (including one this year), she also received two Soap Opera Digest Awards, the second of which was shared with her co-star, David Canary, for Favorite Couple.
In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys outdoor activities and is an aspiring writer, whose latest effort is a new night-time series called "Nightfall," which is currently under consideration for production by HBO.
Her range is astounding as you can see reflected in some of her photos, above and below, and the breadth of range in the roles she has portrayed throughout her amazing career.
BILLY STAPLES IS BACK! On his comeback, Billy had a modest role in the first episode of the 2022 season for "MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL." Billy first signed with GKM in the year 2000. At the time Billy was winding up a successful radio career as the proverbial third wheel on the nationally popular "Ron & Fez" show. He quickly made the transition to the visual medium of TV with an appearance on "Third Watch" and being featured in a music video. However, he had to back away from the business to care for his mom.
Billy hasn't lost a step. We know we have to start "small," but in less than his first month back under the GKM banner, he booked a lead role in a student-thesis film, and a supporting role in an Equity production of "Guys & Dolls." The student film will allow Billy to get some new film for his now semi-obsolete (yet still effective) reel.
Between the two productions, going back-to-back with simultaneous prep, and restarting acting class, he can't believe how busy he is.
These two headshots were taken by Mark Fisher.

Also, new to the GKM family, is NICK GENTA.
More about him later as he is taking new headshots and putting his reel together.
Nick is a graduate of Princeton and has a fabulous high tenor singing range.
BTW, I'm not that short, but he is that tall....almost 6'3".
One of my favorite former clients. She's welcome back anytime but she has, for the most part, left the biz. I hope she changes her mind. She has incredible talent to go along with natural charisma.
A while back: CHERYL LYONE just completed filming a DUAL LEAD ROLE opposite DEAN WINTERS in the film project, "Memoire." Before that she shot a lead role in "NOT ANOTHER CELEBRITY MOVIE" in the role of Lady Gaga.
She was honored to film a co-star role in the Premiere Episode of "Law & Order: Los Angeles." CHERYL has a devoted cult-following from her starring role in the edgy, revenge-flick, "Run! Bitch Run!"
CHERYL LYONE stars in Cannes-screened "RUN! BITCH RUN!"
Here is an excerpt from a reviewer: "The level of violence is extreme but done just enough that your anticipation for Catherine's revenge builds up immensely. In our quest to find new and independent films, Run! Bitch Run! is for sure a film you don't want to miss. It has all the cool elements of the old school Grindhouse films without a multi million dollar budget. Cheryl Lyone's acting is great and quite impressive considering the intensity of her role and the variations her character goes through."

Congrats to Collin who is now a recurring character on the hit SHOWTIME series, "RAY DONOVAN."

After nearly 15 years together, starting when ALICIA was a teenager with nothing but raw potential that took years of patient development, and then after approximately 7 years of hard work on both ends, she landed her signature role on ABC's "ALL MY CHILDREN." Alicia has recently become a GKM Alumnus. GKM could not be prouder of Alicia, her work ethic, and the things we have been able to accomplish together. Now GKM is acting as producer for her own show which we are currently developing.
ALICIA, though not a management client at this time, signed with a GKM subsidiary to shoot the lead role in a new Pilot (with the lead role created for her) entitled "I'VE COMPLETELY LOST IT !!" Actually, two lead roles. As a nod to her soap past, she's playing her own twin. :-) These roles are very different than her roles in "All My Children." The Pilot is an "Extreme Comedy." Alicia, like you've never seen her before.
AFTER A 10 YEAR RUN starring on ABC-TV's "ALL MY CHILDREN," with the cancellation of the show from ABC-TV, Alicia has decided to not to follow the show on the Internet and will move on to new ventures. One of those new ventures? See the above paragraph.
Here is a Press Release I put out in January 2008:
THE HARDEST WORKING ACTOR ON TV
Instead of all the spoiled, trouble-making actresses out there who are in and out of rehab with their panties in the glove compartment, something nice should be said about someone who is really hard-working, good at her job, young-yet-mature, beautiful and talented.
I thought my long-time friend and client had been working awfully hard this past year. On her sixth on-air anniversary (January 8th) my suspicions were confirmed when a fan, known only as "dawn9476," blogged about some research she had conducted. Alicia is officially the hardest working actor in all of Television (Daytime, Prime Time, or ANYTIME). She shot, and appeared in, an incredible 233 episodes of ABC-TV's "ALL MY CHILDREN" for the year 2007 in the role of vixen, KENDALL HART, the beautiful, plotting and devious, diva-daughter of SUSAN LUCCI'S "ERICA KANE." That's more than any other actor in her field (or otherwise), by far. Can you imagine how many volumes of dialogue she has had to memorize, night-after-night, after shooting all day? It is a testament to her fan base, her work ethic, and the faith that ABC-TV has in her. She may have been the titleholder in the previous 5 years as well.
Alicia has accumulated an astonishing, 1500-plus episodes since she first appeared six years ago. That body of work is the equivalent of nearly 40 years for a Prime Time TV show!
