Richard Gibson (born 1 January, 1954 in Kampala, Uganda) is a British actor, is probably best known for his role as the archetypal Gestapo Officer Herr Otto Flick in the BBC hit sitcom series, "'Allo 'Allo!". The show ran from 1982 with an initial pilot and then from 1984 to 1992. Dressed in an ankle-length leather coat and with the obligatory stiff-legged limp and walking stick, Herr Flick spent his life suppressing peasants, seducing Helga, the German town Commandant's assistant, and vainly trying to get his hands on the original of the painting 'The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies' by Van Klomp.

Richard Gibson toured with the group when "'Allo 'Allo!" transferred to the stage and had successful tours both in the United Kingdom and abroad. The stage version of the show gave rein to his other skills and he was able to demonstrate his mastery over the violin.

He has played a wide variety of roles on stage and the TV screen and in 2006 was a regular guest on "The Daily Telegraph"'s World Cup Pubcast, where he usually took the role of Herr Flick, providing a more biased view of the proceedings. In 2003, he guest starred in the "Doctor Who" audio drama "Flip-Flop".
