Meet Gary Reich: Is he really Darrien of Baby Reindeer? Rumors clarified!

Gary Reich is a television producer from London famous for his work on comedy shows and dramas like Turn Up Charlie, Uncle David, How Not to Live Your Life, and Little Miss Jocelyn.

He is 54 years old and calls himself SA-born. His single mother, Annabel Linder, raised him alone and is of Jewish descent.

Gary entered Hyde Park High School in 1986 and completed his undergraduate studies at Sheffield University, all thanks to his father’s support.

Later, he majored in English literature and did a master’s degree in film and poetry.

His first job as a trainee scriptwriter was when he was 22, and he leaped to start his own company, Brown Eyed Boy, in 2002.

The company has been lauded for bringing incredible talents like Sacha Baron Cohen, Noel Fielding, and Julian Barratt to the industry.

Later, in 2010, Gary’s company merged with Shine Group and launched a new venture in 2011 in Edinburgh to encourage Scottish Talent.

This is where all the rumors stemmed from, as Richard Gadd is a Scottish comedian who worked with Channel 4 and Brown Eyed Boy Productions.

The second factor that led to the rumor is Gary Reich flamboyantly accepts himself as gay, and Richard Gadd’s abuser Darrien was into men. So, fans are not hesitant to link Gary Reich to Darrien from Baby Reindeer.

However, Richard condemned the ongoing accusations and said,

People I love, have worked with, and admire … are unfairly getting caught up in speculation.

So, it is better to avoid making personal assumptions, as they may harm the well-being and reputation of the involved party.

Also, based on our research, Gary Reich is not the older comedian and writer abuser Darrien from Baby Reindeer until proven so.

  1. Seems fishy that he doesn’t want to name his abuser. Makes some of us think it didn’t actually happen. Why save someone from something they deserve? Like prison time.

    • Pat, I need you to think over your comment seriously. There is a reason why women are not believed. He struggled with the very same in the show. I am also a CSA survivor and let me tell you it’s not that easy. I wish it was.

  2. Read the synopsis for one of his films – Uncle David. The behaviour is shockingly similar…
