Date of Birth: August 19th 1955
The dark, handsome leading man has mostly played sleazy phonies on screen but likable guys on stage. He was born in Armonk, New York, and started acting in Boston while attending Tufts University. Gallagher studied with Robert Lewis at the Actors Studio and made his Broadway debut in 1977 as a replacement for the leading role in Grease. He first attracted attention as the romantic composer Otto in the short‐lived musical A Doll's House (1982), followed by such notable performances as the Welsh youth Morgan Evans yearning for education in The Corn Is Green (1983); the sickly, poetic Edmund Tyrone in Long Day's Journey into Night (1986); the swank gambler Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls (1992); and the frustrated director Lloyd Dallas in Noises Off (2001).
