Michael Gambon Career

Few people ever imagined that Gambon, who was born and reared in Dublin and comes from a poor background, would one day work in Hollywood.

After completing his engineering training, he put his faith in himself and started on an amazing career that brought him to the “Harry Potter” franchise and four Baftas for his work in television. He received a knighthood as well.

He was most recognised outside of the “Harry Potter” films for his part as Jules Maigret in the “Maigret” series or for his work on the BBC series “The Singing Detective.”

Gambon had a long life and lived to the age of 82 before succumbing to pneumonia.

With a career spanning five decades in the entertainment business, Sir Michael was a seasoned professional. He made prominent appearances throughout his career on television, in films, on stage, and on radio.

Households were familiar with him from his roles as Philip Marlow in Dennis Potter’s The Singing Detective and Jules Maigret in the 1992 ITV series Maigret. Over the course of his career, he took home four television BAFTAs in all.
