Born and raised in London, England, Adrian Paul boasts a colorful background. Born of an Italian mother and a British father, he first became a model, then a dancer and choreographer in Europe. He is well-traveled and speaks English, French and Italian fluently. In 1985, he left Europe and came to the United States to pursue a dance and modeling career. Even though he had studied Shakespeare and performed in school plays when he was younger, acting was not a focus. Shortly after his arrival in America, he was urged to audition. His first role came on the ABC television series, Los Colby (1985), as the Russian expatriate ballet dancer, "Kolya". This led to a role in the Broadway play, "Bouncers", in 1987 and to a guest appearance on the television show, La bella y la bestia(1987) in 1988. His first film appearance was in the 1989 film V√≠nculos de sangre (1988), with Tom Berenger. He went on to have a starring role in the Roger Corman film, Masque of the Red Death (1989), a re-telling of the Edgar Allan Poe tale. He appeared in a regular role in the second season of the television series La guerra de los mundos II: la nueva generaci√≥n (1988) and made a pilot for CBS Television for a series called The Owl (1991). In 1992, he was cast in the role that would bring him to the most prominence to date...that of "Duncan MacLeod" in the syndicated series, Los inmortales (1992). - IMDb Mini Biography By: Jimmi Smith-Schneider

Personal Quotes 
[About Los inmortales (1992) co-star Stan Kirsch] He never slept like a log, let me tell you. He was always up 'til four in the morning. He was partying every night.

[interviewed in 1990) I would love to play a vampire because they are so sexual. And they are the dark side of human thought. What a possibility to play someone that can see what your heart is doing, feel the blood running through your veins, know what you are thinking, and have all the experience of years and years. It would be so interesting.
