Like his character Spencer Reid from “Criminal Minds”, Matthew Gray Gubler comes from Las Vegas, Nevada. While he was at NYU film school, a model scout discovered him and Matthew worked for Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, and American Eagle to name but a few. His sister Laura Dahl is a fashion designer based in New York.
It came as no surprise to hear Matthew had been a model. He has the look of one. He does however play an exceptional geek.
