Lorenzo Lamas Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 20, 1958
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001
  • Birth Name: Lorenzo y de Santos Lamas

The son of actors [[Performer~P98524~Fernando Lamas~fernandolamas]] and [[Performer~P16566~Arlene Dahl~arlenedahl]], Lorenzo Lamas' first screen appearance was a bit in 1969's [[Feature~V16~100 Rifles~100rifles]], in which his father co-starred. Originally planning to become a professional race-car driver (he still enters track competitions from time to time), Lamas inaugurated his career as a "heartthrob hunk" in 1979, when he was cast in the short-lived TV weekly [[Feature~V86425~California Fever~californiafrontier]]. A brief stint on the prime-time TV serial [[Feature~V138333~Secrets of Midland Heights~segretisegreti]] (1980) followed before Lamas graduated to full stardom as Lance Cumston on the nighttime soaper Falcon Crest (1981-1990). Anxious to demonstrate his musical prowess, Lamas signed on as host of the syndicated variety series [[Feature~V132223~Dancin' to the Hits~dancinthruthedark]] in 1986. Perhaps significantly, Lamas has neither danced nor sung in his current project, the weekly adventure series [[Feature~V107600~Renegade~therenegade]]. Lorenzo Lamas has starred in a plethora of direct-to-video films, and in 1994 both directed and starred in [[Feature~V131766~CIA II: Target Alexa~ciaii:targetalexa]]. In the years to come, Lamas would remain an active force on screen, appearing in films like Back to Even and Ash Global, as well as on series like The Bold and the Beautiful. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
