Who I Am.
Welcome to my website
Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson was born January 3, 1956 in Peekskill, New York, USA, as the sixth of eleven children of Hutton Gibson, a railroad brakeman, and Anne Patricia (Reilly) Gibson (who died in December of 1990). His mother was Irish, from County Longford, while his American-born father is of mostly Irish descent.
Mel and his family moved to Australia in the late 1960s, settling in New South Wales, where Mel’s paternal grandmother, contralto opera singer Eva Mylott, was born. After high school, Mel studied at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, performing at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts alongside future film thespians Judy Davis and Geoffrey Rush.
Mel Gibson has worked for over 40 years as a performer in the entertainment industry, from film to theater to television.

“Go away, dig a hole, do something else, come back and it magically rejuvenates your creative impulses and stuff.”
“All experiences, what does not kill you makes you stronger and tougher I think. Life’s experiences, whether they be pleasant, unpleasant, torturous or excruciatingly wonderful and blissful, season you somehow and you learn from them.”
“The only way to maintain a moderate sum of happiness in this life is not to worry about the future or regret the past too much”
“Pain is the precursor to change.”
