Biography

Gavin Cooper did not always dream of being an actor, it wasn’t until the age of 22 that he first took part in pub theatre. After this he went on to drama school at ALRA. Since leaving the academy he’s done various roles for BBC and ITV. Gavin is a very active person, he teaches breakdance to kids, enjoys extreme rollerblading and you can also find him right midfield in the Sunday league. Gavin is a member of the actors centre; he feels it’s important to practice his craft. He has just taken part in a new documentary piece about the terrorist attacks in London, where he plays one of the terrorists. People who know of Gavin would say he’s come a long way since the days of pub theatre and that he has grown as an actor.
