Truth is, most actors are kind of boring, and David Hyde Pierce is not the glorious exception to that rule. He plays Niles very, very well, so well that he recently won a Screen Actors Guild award for the portrayal and earned an Emmy last fall.

Frasier (season 11) - Wikipedia
The eleventh and final season of the American sitcom television series Frasier originally aired from September 23, to May 13, on NBC. The opening title screen color was changed to gold. Frasier chips an old earthenware crock pot while preparing dinner, and is about to throw it away, when he pauses, and remembers the dinners associated with the item, going back in time until finally remembering the first dinner he had made for his father, Niles, Daphne and Roz. The show invented new scenes from previous seasons, with the cast wearing the hairstyles, clothes, and vocal and semiotic mannerisms from those previous seasons, in some cases wearing wigs. After the flashbacks , Frasier repairs the crock pot, warmly places flowers in it, and gives it an honored place on the dinner table, as the gang arrives. When he fills it with water, the pot immediately begins to leak from all the cracks.

He is portrayed by Edward Hibbert. Gil's first appearance is in Frasier Crane's Day Off , where he temporarily takes over Frasier's time slot while he has a bout with the flu. Initially, Gil appears to be somewhat antagonistic towards Frasier and even vies for his time slot but this is not the case in subsequent episodes. He is pompous, like Frasier , but also very effeminate. He is suspected by his coworkers of being gay, but he claims to be married to Deb.
