TreY Butler



Living a Dream

     Acting for Trey is that constant desire to communicate. Telling stories is what he loves. He's stated they wants to be able to communicate something real, something tangible, something unseen. In short, that's why he's an actor. 

       His first film audition was in 2000 for a film called 'The Gift' which was written by Billy Bob Thornton and starred Kate Blanchett, Katie Holmes, Keanu Reeves, J.K. Simmons, and Giovanni Ribisi. He knew very little about the project when he went in to audition for this "Southern" film. He showed up in coveralls, a flannel shirt, and a pair of his dad's work boots. Trey didn't book it to say the least but he knew what he wanted to do.

     It was a biography on acting legend James Earl Jones that convinced him to go to school for acting. "Classically trained" - those are the words he remembered. He was raised in the theatre and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Trey graduated with a BA in theatre and immediately switched to 
Film, TV, & Commercials.

     He is currently based out of Atlanta, and seeking management. For a more detailed history of Trey's work, click on his resume below to view and download.
