BIOGRAPHY:

Though born in England in May of 1952, Antony Hamilton was adopted by an Australian military man and his wife and grew up in Adelaide, Australia. A classically trained dancer, he danced with the Australian ballet before his outstanding good looks led him into a modeling career. He modeled in Europe and, while studying acting, in the U.S. After being "introduced" (according to the film credits) in _Samson and Delilah (1984)_ he was offered the co-starring role in the TV series "Cover Up" (1984) as a replacement for the late Jon-Erik Hexum. As Hexum was an acting school classmate of Hamilton's, the actor hesitated to profit by Hexum's death, but eventually agreed to take the role. Around that same time, Cubby Broccoli tested him as the new James Bond when Pierce Brosnan was at first unable to get out of his "Remington Steele" contract to play the role. According to some reports, Broccoli decided against a blond Bond; in other reports, it was agreed by both Hamilton and Broccoli that the former's known homosexuality would work against him in the role. Whatever the reason, Hamilton continued in television and films until his death from complications due to the AIDS virus in March of 1995.


TRIVIA:
  • Grew up on a sheep farm in Adelaide, Australia.
  • Worked as a model for 10 years before taking up acting. He often appeared in magazines such as Vogue and GQ, becoming a favorite subject of world-famous photographers as Richard Avedon and Brice Weber, and working for fashion designers such as for instance Gianni Versace.
  • Began his career as a professional ballet dancer with The Australian Ballet. Started dancing ballet because he saw dance as a way of getting out of Australia and seeing the world.
  • Was adopted at the age of 2 weeks by an Australian RAF-hero and his wife.
