Gabriel LaBelle is an up-and-coming Canadian-American actor. He is just starting in his twenties but he has already found himself some of the best characters in cinema. Of all his performances, he is best known for his leading role as young aspiring filmmaker Sammy Fabelman in Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical film The Fabelmans (2022).

Meet Megan LaBelle, Gabriel LaBelle Mom
To those wondering Michelle Williams is not Gabrielle’s mom. She is only played onscreen mother to Gabriel’s character and he now says working with heavy hitters as her was something really special.
Not much was understood about Megan LaBelle, Gabriel LaBelle’s mom in real life. But Gabriel did talk about how he felt a connection to Sammy, the fictional version of the Hollywood legend that Gabriel plays as a teen in The Fabelmans, given their similar pasts.
Weighing up his own journey to that of Sammy in the movie, Gabriel told GQ that he was older than the character when he started to see his parents as people and not just his parents. After this, he said, he realized that adults do not have all the answers and there is no difference between a kid and an adult.
So, apparently, in a way, Gabriel’s parents helped him be a part of the story that he relates to from his own childhood.
Megan LaBelle Age
Megan LaBelle was born before 1970 on particularly March 20th. So, she may be turned 52 years old at the least in 2022.

Megan also owned a Facebook account. But, she appeared less involved here.
Are Gabriel LaBelle’s Parents Still Married?
No. Gabriel LaBelle’s parents are no more together.
Apparently, coming from divorced parents is the common thing that Gabriel has time and again talked about comparing it to Spielberg and Sammy.
Because The Fabelmans is about the decline of marriage and the children who have to deal with it, Gabriel also made sure that he brought that pain (from his parents’ separation) to the set when he turned himself into Sammy.
Gabriel’s parents divorced when he was young. He recalled this one incident from that time. His parents had split up and at that point, he was in high school and that was in the neighborhood where his dad lived in. That was also where all his friends were. So, at that time, he came up with this idea and gave each parent their own alert sound, when they were calling him. He thought with this he could instantly calibrate whose house to head toward. He said he still has not changed it.
