Born January 23rd 1943 in Little Rock, Arkansas USA, Gil attended Arkansas
State Teachers College where he pursued a career in chemistry, but It was
acting that grabbed his attention during his college years and at the age of 26
he gave up a promising business career to pursue a dream of acting. Gil
headed for New York to study at the American Music and Dramatic Academy
and appeared on stage in plays such as Stalag 17, Oklahoma and Carousel,
but it was while working as a cab driver that a passenger suggested that
he should audition as an extra for the film "Love Story". He then went
on to appear in over four hundred television commercials spanning a six
years period and in 1974 Gil took on the role as "Dr Allen Stewart" in the
daytime soap opera "The Doctors".

Two years later he moved to Hollywood forming his own production company
called "Prudhomme Productions", he then produced and starred in his first
film "Hooch". With guest starring roles in "Little House on the Prairie",
"Hawaii Five-0' and "Baretta" he then went on to star in TV movies such as
"Ransom for Alice" and "Killing Stone". After twice turning down the role for
Buck Rogers, he eventually took on the part which aired in 1979, Gil preferred
the second season of stories because he liked the idea of exploring the galaxy.
After its cancellation in 1981 Gil went on to do more TV movies such as "Not
Just Another Affair", "Hear No Evil", "Help Wanted: Male", "Storming Home"
and "Sidekicks". Standing over 6 feet in height he's an accomplished pilot
and enjoys scuba diving amongst many other sports.
