To honor Gil on his special day, and to get to know the actor behind the role, here are a few fun facts about the Native American Comanche from his newly launched website (Us Billy fans have to have place to go to learn more about him, right?):
-After college, Gil embarked on a career in petrochemical engineering.
-His first acting role was in a Diana Ross music video titled “Muscles.”
-“Twilight” (Gil is pictured in the wheelchair in a scene from the flick) isn’t his first foray into the world of the undead. He made an appearance on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” back in 1997.
-Gil is an active Twitterer. You can follow him at @gilbirmingham.
Happy Birthday, Gil! We’re looking forward to seeing you (and the rest of the cast, natch) in “New Moon” this fall.
Do you have any well wishes to offer the birthday boy?
