2018In short, this was a stunning performance. Gibson possessed an excellent ability to draw the audience in to his character

2017Pete Gibson adopts this air of mild exasperation with his posh-voiced Adams addressing the audience like a weary headmaster.
David Cunningham

2017As Adams, Pete Gibson strikes the perfect note between condescending bravado and lack of faith in his own abilities
Tim Worthington, View from the Cheap Seat

2017"I especially loved Gibson’s portrayal which had a heightened edge of pantomime madness, lending a humorous but also sinister twist".

  • Education

    YearQualificationWhere
    1989BA Hons English and DramaUniversity of Leeds

    Additional Skills

    Writer, director and producer. I also run a PR agency which promotes the arts and local theatre in particular - www.petegibsonmedia.org.uk/

    Additional Information

    I was the singer and songwriter in a Leeds indie band who once toured with the Stone Roses.

    About me

    I am a very versatile character actor with wide experience of corporate film work and theatre. I was trained at Leeds University plus the Embers Group (Meisner technique) and Actor’s Lab schools. I have many theatre credits including in Shakespearean productions, touring plays and TIE. Notable roles include playing writers Alan Bennett, Douglas Adams and poet Siegfried Sassoon (Lowry Theatre). Recently, I have expanded my corporate film work and played roles including a GP, senior police officer, customer, banker, salesman and father in films for multinational companies and large public and voluntary sector organisations. Feature film work includes playing the head of MI5 in a forthcoming spy drama and a lawyer in “My Jewish Auntie” broadcast at cinemas and on TV. I have completed walk-on roles in BBC and ITV dramas including “Prey” and “From Darkness”. Prior to becoming a full-time actor, I had a long career in television news, representing charities and the police on national television and radio.
