Wiki

Paul Mackenzie Crook (born 29 September 1971) is a British actor and comedian. He is known for playing Gareth Keenan in The Office and Ragetti in the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Paul Mackenzie Crook was born in Maidstone, Kent, England, and grew up in Dartford. His father, Michael Crook, worked for British Airways and his mother, Sheila, was a hospital manager. He has two sisters. As a child he was put on a course of hormone therapy for three years due to a growth hormone deficiency.

Aged 10, Crook discovered the thrill of performance when dominating an end-of-year school variety show with magic tricks and comedy gags. Then educated at the Wilmington Grammar School for Boys, he joined the Orchard Youth Theatre in Dartford when he was about 15 years old. In the summers he spent time with his uncle at his tobacco farm in Northern Zimbabwe, where he developed his love for painting.
