Thomas Gibson

Thomas Gibson   Born 3 July 1962  Actor/Director/Writer

Thomas Ellis Gibson was born in Charleston, South Carolina, is 6' 2" and has gorgeous brown eyes! He is best known for his role as Supervisory Special Agent Aaron Hotchner in the well loved and ever popular running Criminal Minds.  As a child he was fascinated by Louis Armstrong and even used to sing like him.   His acting career began at the tender age of 10 in children's theatre.   He gained a scholarship to Julliard where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1985.  He has a love for golf and has participated in many golfing events.  When he was 13 he realized girls watch tennis and not golf and so started playing that instead.


I recall first watching Thomas in Legwork in 1987 in the episode, All This And A Gold Card Too which seems like ages ago.  Before landing a role in Chicago Hope as Dr Daniel Nyland.  This could perhaps be described as his breakthrough role as he portrayed a doctor who at times seemed more interested in the ladies than his actual work.  Well who could resist the charms of this breath taking and charming man.

He is a dab hand at comedy too and this was shown when he starred in Dharma and Greg for which he   was nominated for a Golden Globe Award two times.  Suave and sophisticated he's plenty adorable in a suit and tie and this attire was something we came to accept and expect when he played Hotch in Criminal Minds.  Well he looks hot too in casuals.  He doesn't laugh very often in the show but when he smiles he really captivates with his super sexy smile.  Thomas once said: "You can't substitute the act of making people laugh.  It's definitely something that actors like to do."


He has guested in many films including, Far and Away, The Age of Innocence, Raising Waylon, Tales of the City, Caroline In the City, to name but a few.  In 2010 he won the Online Poll for Under Appreciated Entertainer of the Year for Criminal Minds.  He was writer and director on Always Whitney Houston (2012)  Justin Bieber: Always Believing (2013) Come Away Home where he was director as well as on many other shows/films.  


Thomas taught himself to play Singin' In The Rain on the Ukulele and one item of clothing he will never wear are sandals.  Thomas is talented at whatever he does and exudes a special quality on and off screen which is found only in a few actors who hit our screens.
