Biography

Gambon was born in Dublin during World War II. His father, Edward Gambon, was an engineer and his mother, Mary Hoare[2] was a seamstress. His father decided to seek work in the rebuilding of London, and so the family moved to Mornington Crescent in north London, when Gambon was five. His father had him made a British citizen — a decision that would later allow Michael to receive an actual, rather than honorary, knighthood and CBE.[3] (although, under the British Nationality Act 1981 anyone born in Ireland before 1949 can still register as a British subject and, after five years’ UK residence, as a British citizen).

Raised a strict Catholic, he attended St Aloysius Boys’ School in Somers Town and served at the altar. He then moved to St Aloysius’ College in Hornsey Lane, Highgate, London, whose former pupils included Peter Sellers. He later attended a school in Kent, before leaving with no qualifications at fifteen. He then gained an apprenticeship with Vickers Armstrong as a toolmaker. By the time he was 21 he was a fully qualified engineer. He kept the job for a further year – acquiring a fascination and passion for collecting antique guns, clocks and watches, as well as classic cars.
