About Richard Chamberlain (1934 – )
Richard Chamberlain was born George Richard Chamberlain, on March 31, 1934, in Beverly Hills, California.

Richard served in the Korean War, then headed for Hollywood and TV land, in 1959. With Dr. Kildare (1961), Richard Chamberlain became an "overnight" sensation, and huge pin-up favorite of teenagers. Richard Chamberlain found himself the leading TV heartthrob of the early 1960s.

In 1966, Richard turned from Hollywood projects and immersed himself in stage productions, in England. Chamberlain's bravura performances as Hamlet (1969) and Richard II (1972) won over the not-so-easy-to-impress British audiences.

He returned to film projects in England, such as Julius Ceasar, The Music Lovers, and Lady Caroline Lamb, which helped to show the world that Richard could be an in depth actor, and not just offer performances looked down as just good enough for television.

"King of 80s Mini-movies" success came from such challenging productions as The Thorn Birds (1983); (mini-series) and Shogun (1980/II); (mini-series), that put him right back on top.

In the 90s, Richard enjoyed participating in musical stage tours, such as My Fair Lady, and The Sound Of Music.

In the 2005 issue, Richard was Ranked #7 in TV Guide's list of "TV's 25 Greatest Teen Idols."

At the age of 69, Richard Chamberlain decided to "come out" with a tell-all biography, entitled Shattered Love, in which he candidly discusses the anguish of hiding his homosexuality to protect his image throughout his long career.

IN 2010, and 2011, Richard has guest starred on television series, including Desperate Housewives, Chuck, and Brothers And Sisters.
