Before becoming a television star, Gayle performed on Broadway. Her Broadway work includes appearances in Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Gypsy.

During an interview with the BUILD Series, Gayle’s brother, Chad Klitzman, said he helped his sister find her first professional acting job. “Her first job, professionally, was Gypsy, and I literally found it on the internet,” Klitzman said.

Gayle made her television acting debut on the daytime drama As the World Turns. She played the character Hayden Lawson from 2009 to 2010. The following year, Gayle appeared in an episode of Royal Pains titled “A History of Violins.” She made her film debut in the 2011 movie Detachment, in which she played the role of Erica. Gayle’s other acting roles include appearances in Stolen, Hateship Loveship, Vampire Academy, and Candy Jar.

Gayle said she learned a very important lesson from her Detachment co-star Adrien Brody.

“That was my first film, so it meant a lot to me, but Adrien specifically taught me something invaluable,” Gayle told the Miami Herald. “He told me not to work for money or fame but for passion. Be passionate about your work, don’t worry about anything else.”

Gayle’s work in the entertainment industry doesn’t stop with acting. She also has added the role of producer to her resume. So far, she has one producer credit for her work on the 2018 Netflix movie Candy Jar, which Klitzman wrote.

During a panel discussion at the 92nd Street Y, an audience member asked the Blue Bloods cast to share their best off-camera moment. Gayle shared a funny story about a plate of meatballs she really didn’t want to eat. Here’s what happened:

We were all around the family dinner table, and I was just freaking out, nervous because I was the new girl in town. The whole dinner was about the fact that I didn’t want to eat the meatballs.

So the director at the very end says, ‘Take a bite of the meatballs.’ And as soon as he says that, my cousin sneezes just the largest sneeze, twice, over my meatballs. And I had to eat it. As soon as they yelled, ‘Cut,’ Bridget [Moynahan] handed me a napkin, and she was like, ‘Spit it out! Spit it out!’ And I was like, ‘That’s my mom!’
