It was in 1999 that Gabriel secured his first major acting role, as Young Pip in the BBC's adaption of Great Expectations. It was through his role on Painted Lady that Gabriel got the role in Great Expectations, as the casting director of Painted Lady thought Gabriel would be perfect as Young Pip. The same year, Gabriel made his big screen debut as Pinocchio in The New Adventures of Pinocchio.
