After practising law as a qualified solicitor for nearly 20 years, Chris left his career and went back to drama school at the Midlands Academy of Musical Theatre.


Upon leaving his training, Chris walked straight into a lead role in “The Dreaming” at Lichfield Garrick which was reviewed by Mark Shenton of The Stage. Mark said the following: “there is a particularly impressive vocal performance from Chris Gilbey-Smith as Angel the Oberon-like leader of the boy – woodlanders“


Chris then landed the lead role of Ebeneezer Scrooge on a UK and Ireland tour of a Christmas Carol.


His professional career has continued from there and includes runs of Roald Dahl‘s “The Twits“, playing Julian Marsh opposite X factor winner Sam Bailey in “42nd Street“, playing the villain Leonardo in “Beauty and the Beast" pantomime.


Chris is also a member of the West End gospel choir and performs professionally with them. Highlights include performing with Kerry Ellis and Loose Women Brenda Edwards amongst other major musical theatre performers.


Chris also teaches acting and acting through song to students at Rock School Tamworth.


As a same-sex couple adopter, Chris is a huge advocate for adoption and as a result sits on the adoption panel for ACE (Adoption Central England) where he assists with the approval of adopters and adoption matches.
