CHRISTINA GAYTON

Hi! I'm Christina. I've performed in a few independent and student films, webseries, NYU sketch comedy shows, and most notably on The Today Show with Hoda and Kathie in a toilet paper wedding dress, Seventeen's show Bestie Picks Bae, and Adult Swim's DigiKiss.


I also host videos for TalentSeer's video platform CrossMinds AI, where I research, script, shoot, and edit infotainment videos. After college, I plan to continue acting in films and to join a UCB improv or sketch team.

The History of Me

I first started acting in 3rd grade at LA Performing Arts in San Antonio, Texas and then began theatre at Lopez Middle School in 5th grade. I peaked in 8th grade, where I won Best Actress at the district UIL One Act Play competition. In high school, I continued acting by doing humorous and dramatic monologues and duets at Speech & Debate competitions. Through this activity, I won several tournaments at the local, state, and national level. Currently, I am studying at New York University while working on indie film sets and sketches in her comedy group, Free Beer NYU.
