Thomas Ellis Gibson was born in Charleston, South Carolina, as the youngest child of four to Charles M. and Beth Gibson. His mother was a social worker and his father was a progressive Democratic lawyer and state legislator. At a young age Thomas became interested in theater, and began performing in children's plays. He spent a summer as an intern at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival when he was 18, and the following year he began studying at Juilliard School Drama Division as a member of Group 14. He made his NY stage debut in David Hare's A Map of the World at the NY Shakespeare Festival, and went on to perform in many plays both off and on Broadway. He has also worked extensively in films and on television. He was twice nominated for a Golden Globe for his work on Dharma and Greg.
