However, his craggy looks soon made him into a character actor, and it was not until Dennis Potter's The Singing Detective (1986) that he became a household name. In his youth, Gambon played romantic leads, notably in the early 1970s BBC television series, The Borderers, in which he was swashbuckling Gavin Ker. Sir Michael Gambon (born October 19, 1940) is one of Britain's foremost actors, knighted for his services to the theatre - despite having been born in Dublin, Ireland.
