This section is continuously under development, with more details of Gareth's activities being added as we hear about them.
Note: the dates given for TV/Radio shows are where possible the first showing of the first episode where applicable, not when they were made.
Gareth has managed to die in a surprisingly large number of roles. The RIP symbol is shown against performances he is known to have died in.
Gareth has been known to bemoan the fact that he never gets to play lovers. The statistics seem to bear him out. Heart symbols indicate a romance, they appear to be heavily outnumbered by tombstones. (Parts where he is already married don't qualify. )
Gareth has said that he does't want to be thought of as just a Welsh actor, but as an actor who can do English and Welsh characters with equal ease. He has lived for a long time in England, and now in Scotland, after his early years in Wales. He has been cast in a lot of Welsh roles over the years. Leeks indicate Welsh parts.
