Gavin, Weston

Weston Gavin

Weston Gavin (Jimmy Gavin) was born in New York?, his father and his step-father were merchant seamen and they (the family) lived all over.
Gavin started studying commercial art but developed an interest in the theater and wanted to study acting. He landed a handful of small parts in off-Broadway productions and quickly realized that he could not work and study acting at the same time so he went to work at sea to save enough money to pursue his interest.
