Michael Gambon, born October 19th, 1940, is a Libra. Libras are known for being peaceful, sociable, charming, and flirtatious, and Michael Gambon exemplifies all of these traits.
A renowned British actor, Gambon started his career on the stage in 1963 and has had leading roles in various West End productions until 1990. He was born in Dublin, Ireland to a family of English and Irish descents, who moved to London when Michael was five. When he was growing up, Gambon was a natural performer. It was his teacher, Father John McGrane, the President of St. Aloysius College in Miltown Park, London, who used to put Gambon up onstage in school competitions that helped him develop his gifts for performing.
Gambon was initially inspired by two actors – Jack Lemmon and Peter O’Toole, who were both Leos, and it was their style of performance that influenced Michael to pursue acting full-time. Gambon received his first big break in the ’80s when he played the lead role in the TV mini-series Winston Churchill: The Wilderness Years. He went on to have leading roles in big-screen productions like The Miniaturist (1982) and Murder on the Orient Express (1984). Gambon had his breakthrough moment as an actor when he played the role of Lord Warrington in the James Bond movie GoldenEye (1995). Following his success in the Bond movie, Gambon appeared in other major films like Sleepy Hollow, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and Angels & Demons.
In 2007 Michael was awarded with a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for his services to drama, which honored his work as well as his achievements. This was a seminal moment for Gambon, as it was a recognition of over four decades of hard work. Michael has continued to perform on the stage and screen to this day.
Gambon’s success as an actor ties deeply to the characteristics of his zodiac sign, Libra. Libras have an appreciation for the Arts, and Gambon used his smooth, polished acting style to collaborate with other great artists in the entertainment industry. He also knows how to work in a team – he formed strong interpersonal relationships with dozens of filmmakers, producers, and other actors on set with him – and this helped him to become one of the most in-demand actors in the world. He is also known for his ability to be a perfectionist and to create somewhat of a contradictory image of himself, making him stand out in a crowd. All of these things have contributed to Gambon’s success as an actor and to his exceptional career.
