Gerard started working as an industrial chemist and after a few years he would become a regional manager of the company, but as he did not have a degree, he resigned as he couldn’t undertake the required master’s course, but his net worth was well established. He then moved to New York City to study acting, and would work as a taxicab driver to pay expenses, doing which he would meet someone who invited him to the set of “Love Story” , and was hired as an extra.

He mostly did commercials early in his career, including becoming a spokesman for the Ford Motor Company, then had a small role in 1971’s “Some of My Best Friends Are…”, a gay-themed film. Three years later he was part of “Man on a Swing” which is a murder mystery thriller film, and then got his first major role in the TV soap opera “Doctors”, which he joined for two years.

Eventually, he would get his best known role in “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”, which increased his net worth significantly, as he stayed with the show from 1979 to 1981.

Afterwards, Gil appeared in several television shows, most of which were short lived. In the 1990s, he continued to make guest appearances in shows such as “Days of Our Lives” and “Pacific Blue”.
