Happy Birthday to Richard Chamberlain!

The great star of The Thorn Birds, Shogun and Dr. Kildare (What? You expected me to mention The Towering Inferno?) turns 76 years young today!

Richard Chamberlain was pretty much off my radar until I saw a scene in Thorn Birds where he was dancing (it was the same party where Barbara Stanwyck kissed hiom on the lips then died) and he was just so HOT! From then on, I watched everything he ever did and was so glad when he came out publicly several years ago.

He continues to be busy in roles both straight and gay – including playing Felicity Huffman’s gay stepfather last season on Desperate Housewives and a politician in the big screen comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.

I´ve just watched a dvd of Cinderela, and it reminded me to search in internet.I would like to thank you for all the amusement you´ve brought to me, and wish you a long life, health, hapiness, and that you can make more movies. You are still very handsome !

  5. Good luck and best wishes to this man who has brought me good films
    and mini series since I was a small child into adulthood and still
    love to read about him now, and very good wishes for the future, and
    thank god for the internet, where I can keep in touch with his T.V.

    Just wish to say that although Richard Chamberlain is over 75, I still like him. Special mention to ‘ Thorn Birds ‘

    It is his kind of attitude towards women which is remarkable : he’s got feminine sensitivity. Female sexual psychology is different from male’s one and I personally feel Richard graps the intricacies of feminity.

  9. Dear Riichard..good luck in your carrer after still a very handsome man and a great actor

  10. I would very much like to have Richard Chamberlain’s e-mail address. I have written a rather long e-mail to him but do not know where to send it. Since July 2015 I have purchased his two books, 8 movies or CD’s in which he stars, and his CD, “All I Have To Do Is Dream”, which has 29 wonderful, romantic songs in it. Surprisingly, on the reverse side is a photo of him, in which he is not smiling, but looks exactly like one of my twin grandsons, Mattia, who is 7-/2 years old. I am leaving in 10 days to Rome again for several weeks to visit my family there and it would be super if I could forward my e-mail to this wonderful man before I leave. Thank you in advance for your help.
