EDWARD HIBBERT (Richard Grayson) is probably best known for his recurring role on the critical and popular television favorite, “Frasier,” as Gil Chesterton, the scene-stealing restaurant critic. Hibbert also appeared in the 1998 reworking of the TV series, “Fantasy Island,” in which he co-starred with Malcolm McDowell.

Hibbert has extensive international stage credits, including New York productions of “Jeffrey” (for which he won the Obie Award and LA’s DramaLogue Award when he appeared in the West Coast premiere), “My Night With Reg,” “Lady in the Dark,” “Candide,” “Me and My Girl,” “Privates on Parade,” “Noises Off,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Green Bird.” Edward Hibbert’s regional theater credits include performances in Terrence MacNally’s “Love! Valor! Compassion!” (for which he earned a Barrymore Award) and Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest,” receiving a Connecticut Critics Circle Award for the latter.

His West End credits include productions of “Lend Me a Tenor,” “Twelfth Night,” “Hamlet” and “The Mystery of Irma Vep.” Hibbert’s feature film credits have given him the opportunity to collaborate with some of the finest directors working today.

His performances on the big screen include roles in Woody Allen’s “Everyone Says I Love You,” Ron Howard’s “The Paper” and Hugh Wilson’s “The First Wives’ Club.” He also provided one of the voices for the animated sequel to Disney’s “The Lion King” and starring on Broadway in the hit revival of Michael Frayn’s “Noises Off,” directed by Jeremy Sams.
