Mandi Gosling Ethnicity and Background
Gosling is white, and was born into a family of English, French-Canadian and Scottish ancestry. Her mother Donna worked as a qualified High School teacher, and father Thomas Ray Gosling as a traveling salesman. Reportedly, this 41 year-old had a major influence on her brother during their childhood, apparently helping to raise him although he is only three years younger. Mandi has blond long hair and brown eyes, just as her brother Ryan.
In 2012, Mandi had her debut production gigs, being the assistant producer for an episode of “Dateline” NBC, and followed by working as an associate producer on an episode of “Miss Advised”, a reality television series which follows the lives of three single relationship experts, a blogger, columnist and the radio personality. In 2015, Mandi played an important role in the making of Pharrell Williams’ music video for the song “Happy”, and in one interview she spoke about her collaboration with the mentioned artist, adding that nowadays many talented directors see videos as an opportunity to explore their ideas, which they might not be able to put into a full-length film. Being recognized, the music video was rewarded with a Grammy award.
In addition to being a producer, Gosling is a talented singer, and her vocal abilities can be heard in several videos, possibly uploaded by her on YouTube. Reportedly, the videos were made in 2007, and were filmed at the Theater Barn, located in New York. Apparently, her brother is not the only Gosling who can sing well!
Playing an important role for the video of “Happy”, speaking later about her experience with Pharrell Williams and his team, Mandi stated that it was “amazing”, adding that they are also down to earth and creative. Working on the video for “Happy”, Mandi had to book 360 stars and civilians, which made her project more complicated, but eventually her hard work paid off, and the song was one of the most popular that year and played an important role in Gosling’s rise to fame. She noticed that musicians and directors, even though in different branches of art, can create “something fresh and new”. The idea of Pharrell’s video was to make an interactive 24-hour video, and despite some worries that the team had and the fact that they didn’t have a traditional casting process, they eventually pulled it off. Ultimately, the video featured people of all ages from all around the world, who recorded themselves dancing. Eventually, Mandi had to go through over 5,000 videos in order to find the perfect cast for “Happy”, and she reportedly even convinced her mother to give it a try.
Working on the previously mentioned song allowed Mandi to cross ways with many people from the entertainment field, such as Jimmy Kimmel, Odd Future, Jamie Foxx, Miranda Cosgrove and Kelly Osbourne. The four minute version of the video was released on YouTube, where it has attracted more than half a billion views.
