Gabriel hails from Dublin in Southern Ireland. He didn't become an actor until later on in his life. He had a number of interesting jobs before acting, including stints as a Spanish teacher and an aspiring archaeologist. He was never a bullfighter as is commonly believed - he merely lectured on the subject when he was an teacher for a short time while in his early twenties.Movie Credits
