Randy Blue fans may recall cute, versatile bearded model Gabriel Shams, who shot just three scenes, including his introductory solo, for RB back in 2008. Well, he’s coming back to porn after a six-year hiatus, looking a lot buffer and daddyish after getting a graduate degree in England and hitting the gym a lot. And he’s escorting too, in New York City.
As he tells Gay Porn Blog in an exclusive interview, his porn career came to an abrupt halt back in 2009 when he was scheduled to shoot a fourth scene for Randy Blue and pulled out of it at the last minute because he had just met and fell in love with a Spaniard the night before who didn’t want him doing porn. “I said, ‘Surely this has happened before?’ But [the people at Randy Blue] were like, ‘No.’ I was really embarrassed but super content of my decision,” he says.
Now, after shooting a quick solo scene in Max Sohl’s office for Treasure Island Media last spring, he’s spent 10 months hitting the gym and he’s eager to get back to fucking on screen. And he’s recently done a couple of photo shoots with Joe Oppedisano.
Where will he appear first? Well, it sounds like he’s preparing to his first bareback scene any day now with Treasure Island, but he’s also shot a scene in this Bible-themed porn feature David Loves Jonathan, which dramatizes some homoerotic moments from the Bible and is being funded by some faith-based gays, including an ordained priest. In it, Tommy Defendi plays Jesus! As Gabriel explains:
They’re giving voice to these homoerotic stories in the Bible that have been overlooked over the years… They are all based on research and books. My scene is from a story that’s in the Bible. I play a Roman Centurion and one of my servant boys is sick. Has a plethora of servants so why would he care so much about this one unless they were intimate? I ask Jesus to cross into Roman territories to heal him: Jesus heals the servant and they have this moment of realization this is where the writers and directors have given themselves artistic license with the stories and the Roman gets jealous because Jesus and the servant messed around. Then there’s this chase scene through the wilderness (which is supposed to be Nazareth). My fuck scene isn’t with Jesus it’s with my servant.
Below, some stills from Shams’ April 2013 TIM shoot, followed by some more recent ones, including one where he’s wearing his Roman Centurion costume. Then we flash back to Gabriel getting fucked by Chris Rockway circa 2008. Read the whole Gay Porn Blog interview here. Follow him on Twitter here.
