Before this blog takes off I felt it necessary to include a little bio info:

Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson was born January 3rd, 1956 to parents Hutton and Ann Gibson. While many may think that Gibson is originally Australian, he was in fact born in Peekskill, N.Y.

The sixth of eleven children, a young Mel relocated to Sydney, Australia (Ann Gibson's place of birth) after his father, a railroad brakeman, suffered an on-the-job injury. Their move down under was also to avoid the elder Gibson boys from being drafted in the Vietnam war.

Once a high school graduate, Gibson wanted to pursue a career in arts of a different kind -- in cooking or journalism -- but after his sister submitted an application to the National Institute of Dramatic Art at the University of New South Wales, behind Gibson's back, he decided to try his hand at acting.

While at the University, Gibson's film repertoire began with his role in Summer City. Luckily for the thespian, director George Miller caught his Summer City performance and called on the State Theatre Company of South Australia actor to audition for the title role of his film.

By another stroke of luck for Gibson -- and another sign that he was in the right field -- he landed the lead role in Mad Max not only despite the fact that he auditioned with a knocked up face (thanks to a fight he was in the night before), but practically because of it.
