Gareth Davies trained at Mountview and began his career as a (non-singing) title role in Purcell's King Arthur for Trinity College of Music. His delight at playing such a serious role was diminished only slightly by having to wear a boy scout uniform throughout.
He has since played Moses, Darth Vader, CPS (and R2D2), James Doohan (Scottie), George Takei (Mr Sulu), the original captain of The Enterprise and assorted producers, directors, fans and geeks - and that's just in one play, the acclaimed Edinburgh fringe production of I Am Star Trek, a show he later returned to to play Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek's creator.
Other credits include Stig of the Dump, Wuthering Heights (Image Musical Theatre), However Do You Want Me? (Hen & Chickens), Robin Hood (Greenwich Theatre), You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow (Greenwich Playhouse), The Caring (Market Theatre) and The Farm (Forest Playwrights). More recently, Gareth originated the roles of Doc in the commedia dell’arte musical Scaramouche (Hoxton Hall) and Terry in Lightning Strikes at Dublin's Project Arts Theatre.
He has also been known to wander around Legoland, Windsor, as various pirates, peasants and wizards; reasons for this have not been forthcoming.
Gareth's comedy group No Cause For a Llama recently recorded The Fun Tom Menace which was written for The Wireless Theatre Company and he will shortly be appearing in Alladdin at the Watersmeet Theatre, Rickmansworth.
