Richard Gibson Life

Richard Gibson (born 1 January 1954) is an English actor best known for his role as the archetypal Gestapo Officer Herr Otto Flick in BBC hit sitcom series 'Allo!'


Richard Gibson Career


Gibson was born in Kampala, Uganda, before the country gained independence from the UK. He was a chorister at St Paul's Cathedral and educated at St Paul's Cathedral School, Radley College near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and the Central School of Speech and Drama.

He took part in 'Allo 'Allo! during the vast majority of the series. Dressed in an ankle-length leather coat and with the obligatory stiff-legged limp and walking stick, Herr Flick spent his life suppressing peasants, seducing Helga, the German town Commandant's assistant, and vainly trying to get his hands on the original of the painting The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies by Van Klomp.

Gibson then toured with the group when 'Allo 'Allo! transferred to the stage and had successful tours both in the United Kingdom and abroad. The stage version of the show gave rein to his other skills, and he was able to demonstrate his mastery of the violin.

He played Sunning in the 1971 BBC1 television series Tom Brown's Schooldays. His first film role of note was in the 1971 film The Go Between, in which he played Marcus Maudsley, school friend of Leo Colston (Dominic Guard) who passed messages between Julie Christie and Alan Bates, and he also played young Tony Farrant in the 1973 film version of England Made Me. He has also played a wide variety of roles on stage and the TV screen, and in 2006 was a regular guest on The Daily Telegraph's World Cup Pubcast, where he usually took the role of Herr Flick, providing a more biased view of the proceedings. In 2003, he guest starred in the Doctor Who audio drama Flip-Flop.

He has divided his time between Ireland and the UK, and continues to work in films, television, and theatre as well as working as a sub-editor for newspaper publications.

Due to the enduring popularity of 'Allo! 'Allo!, he and Kim Hartman have formed a Flick and Helga fan club and made numerous cabaret appearances, using songs and sketches in character. In 2012, as guest speakers on the Fred Olsen ships, Boudicca and Balmoral, they travelled to the Canary Islands and up the Amazon River. In 2014, they were also guest performers at the Malfest Arts Festival in Malpas, Cheshire, and appeared at the War and Peace Show at the Hop Farm in Kent. In 2014 Gibson appeared with fellow 'Allo, 'Allo! cast members at the Sofia International Film Festival. Gibson also works as a radio actor, scriptwriter and voiceover artist.

He has claimed that, while a chorister, he sang at the funeral service of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965, and was paid £2 10s for his work on the day.


INSIDE COUNTY CRICKET: Rob Key's backing of Kookaburra balls has sparked fierce debate and raises questions around the purpose of the County Championship, April 17, 2024
RICHARD GIBSON: For some, England men's director Key included, the County Championship runs solely to produce cricketers for the national team. For others, it is the worthiest of domestic competitions, steeped in 134 years of history and prestige - a marathon test of skill across spring, summer and autumn. Truly, it should be an amalgam of the two, pitting the best players against each other and rewarding both individuals and teams for sustained excellence over a period of time with selection or silverware.

INSIDE COUNTY CRICKET: Newly promoted Durham believe they can win the County Championship this season - as Alex Lees claims they've got 'too much quality' to not challenge at the top end, April 10, 2024
RICHARD GIBSON: An indication of the prevailing mood in the Durham dressing room is that you won't find any of its dwellers dismissing the theory that they could become only the third newly-promoted team to win the County Championship this season. Even the rain that completely washed out their first top-flight fixture since 2016 - Hampshire's visit to Chester-le-Street - couldn't dampen it. Since the inception of two divisions at the start of this century, only Nottinghamshire in 2005 and Essex seven years ago have managed to bridge the quality gap with applause.

As Glamorgan's captain racks up 335 not out, including 190 in boundaries, to beat Graham Gooch's 34-year record. Sam Northeast scores to his highest ever score at Lord's, April 6, 2024
RICHARD GIBSON: Sam Northeast added to his collection of innings on Saturday by smashing the record for the highest first-class score at Lord's. In the first round of this year's County Championship, the Glamorgan captain had the most of losing the toss, defeating Graham Gooch's 333 against India in 1990. The new record in 210 years at the world's most popular cricket ground followed the unbeaten 410 win over Leicestershire in 2022, the highest figure for a Welsh county player.
