Model/Actor Anthony Hamilton

Remember him? He was the gorgeous blond British guy who replaced Jon-Eric Hexum (after Hexum's accidental death) on COVER UP. He died of AIDS at 42. He was gay.

And E.G. Daily was lovers with Hexum. She wrote a song about his death while in the emergency room after he shot himself. It's called "Just for You" - the first words are "Wake up, I'm missing your secret soul tonight." Not a bad ballad actually, she has some musical talent as well as acting.

I was just thinking about how hot the guy in an old episode of the (80's version) of the "Twilight Zone" was, and lo and behold, it turned out to be Mr. Hamilton. He plays the DJ's long lost boyfriend, although it's not him singing the song. I thought that guy was sooo damn hot, including a couple of ass shots in jeans. I would never have pegged him as gay though.

Hamilton was as gay as it comes, he used to go to a friend's house in Fire Island where it was clear that just about anyone could have him. Both of them played Russian Roulette, but a different kind.

Some of you might be interested in reading Andrew Tobias's second autobiography, "The Best Little Boy in the World Grows Up." In it he recounts a brief summer fling on Fire Island in the early '80s with an actor whose identity he only thinly veils as a "blind item." (He says the actor recently played Samson; sure enough, Antony Hamilton played Samson in a TV movie a year or two before.) He recounts his surprise that such a hunk would be attracted to an average guy with an average body, but apparently Antony - unlike most modern-age Chelsea queens - appreciated smarts and wit over looks.

And since I'm sure you are ALL wondering, Andy has a moment of indelicacy in the book and describes Antony as a "voracious bottom."

He was a notorious bottom. i worked in hwood in the mid 90's and knew of him. He had a birthday party that consisted of him getting gang banged while he was wearing nothing but cowboy boots.

by Anonymousreply 9206/02/2013

I remember him well.

In 1977 or so GQ had a promotional full-color, multi-page insert for a new designer and AH was one of the two models featured (uncredited). Even within the context of extremely handsome models, he was extraordinary.

I later recognized him in some TV ad where he tap danced in a dream sequence before later seeing him as an actor in TV shows. In addition to "Cover Up" there was a memorable episode of "L.A. Law" where someone walks in on Corbin Bernsen -- shirtless -- while AH, playing a client who is a trainer, is touching his muscles while giving him some tips of getting in shape.

I feel about his beauty the way I feel about Grace Kelly's: the supreme example of an archetype.

May he RIP. He is not forgotten.

This thread is a nice memorial to Antony.

Like many of you, Antony was one of my first crushes. At 15, I didn't have a strong understanding of my attraction to men. But you can bet your bottom dollar that I never missed an episode of Cover-Up!

Eight years later in December, 1993, I was thrilled when I got to meet him at a fancy LA spa. He was as beautiful in '93 as he was in '85. Body was amazing. And, yes, he was hung with one of the most beautiful cocks I have seen to date. Long...thick...stunning.

He was very nice -- warm...friendly.

Fourteen months later (Feb '95), I was shocked to read in People that he had died of 'pneumonia.' I knew that meant AIDS, and I was very sad.

I wonder why he was so fucked up. He could not have had more going for him.

He was incredibly handsome, beautiful body and had talent as a dancer and an actor. Oh! And he had a big dick.

Yet he was self destructive to the extreme. Was it all because of being conflicted about being gay? There has to be more to it. What was his childhood like?

In reply to (R138). Hamilton was born in Liverpool England and adopted at a young age by an RAF Wing Commander and his nurse wife. They moved to a south Australia sheep farm. Later they moved to Adelaide and tony developed asthma. His adoptive father encouraged him to take up sports to cure him. running, weightlifting, cycling, rugby, etc. He may have had issues due to being adopted. An actor who he once worked with said there was a type of sadness about him of not being loved, which he felt was due to his adoption. He was a very hard working, creative actor, however he lost many possible film roles due the rumor of being Gay. Heard he was truly a very good person. Unfortunately he was said to be very promiscuous. In 1985 his star was on the rise and tragically by 1995 he died.

That story at r111 is one of the most vivid and haunting things I've read.

I very vaguely remember this show (only cause of the camp classic Bonnie Tyler theme which was a big hit in the UK) which I confused with The Scarecrow and Mrs King.

Everything about this show gives me the creeps after hearing that story and knowing the fate of the 2 stars. The ultimate in 80s hedonism excess, the underbelly of the less glamorous side you saw presented then.

Tony was "discovered" in Australia by Rudolf Nuryev. (did I spell that right?) He was as nice as can be and one of the hottest men I ever met. He chased me around one night at Studio One in LA- I was very partnered at the time and unavailable. I don't know for sure, but I was told he was quite a slut- not a bad thing in my mind in those days- but he was among the many who died of HIV. All I remember was that he was nice as can be and so hot that it kind of took your breath away- the way he spoke the way he moved, everything. He had that Australian absence of attitude. Just a mate as they say down there. Didn't Gregory Harrison produce some TV movie about Samson and star Tony?

I met Anthony in the early 90's at the bathhouse. Whenever I would go there I would see him in his room. He never prowled the halls. He was always there with his door wide open for anyone who wished to walk in. I knew of him from his early days in Mission Impossible. I also knew that he was a notorious bottom. At the time, I was a very well built bodybuilder training at Gold's Gym. Out of curiosity more than sexuality, I went into his room. He was sitting up totally naked and smoking a cigarette. He offered me one as I sat down on the edge of the bed in my towel. I declined. We only spoke briefly. He seemed totally out of it and lacked any interest as if his life had no more meaning. I felt sorry for him. We didn't do anything sexually although we could have but I was well aware of his reputation by that time. I think he just gave up by then and didn't care anymore. He was still stunningly beautiful. Pity.

How is it surprising? That was during an epidemic. People didn't have the "one pill a day and you're fine" attitude that some have now. Add on the reports that he was often clearly out of it, it's not surprising that people who appreciated his looks would still have declined.

I knew Tony Hamilton back in the very early 90's at a time when I partied a bit too much. He was a regular at the Hollywood Spa, a bathhouse and that is where I met him. He was an animal when it came to sex. I understand that his behavior was more the problem than his sexuality. It was said that he lost Bond when the role was being re-cast, because he was found in Griffith Park, naked, bound and half full of piss. It sucks that HIV was also around and he got bit. He was very insecure. Bless him.

by Anonymousreply 17608/15/2016

When I lived in New York and after Antony had contracted HIV, I would see him pop into "The Works," an Upper West Side gay bar (no longer there). I could not get over seeing him in person because he was so gorgeous. But a few of the locals had warned me: "He loves to get banged but supposedly he's got HIV." He was still incredibly handsome, but then he died about a year or two later.

[R177] Interesting, I was in a gay bar one night in L.A. and he and a friend came in. His friend went around asking certain guys if they wanted to go to Anthony's place and have an orgy with him. I was one of the guys asked. Things didn't work out though and nothing happened. I guess I was lucky... I later found out he loved ganbangs. A friend of mine was at a birthday party of his and said he got porked by thirty guys.

Good casting but he would need to shave his furry chest.

Dead at 42 in 1995...

I was just talking about a guy who died in 1993 at age 34 of Aids. I wonder if half the people who post here know what a devastating loss we suffered in those years.

Just think how many gay men work in Hollywood, on Broadway, or in the arts, and what a tremendous loss in talent we experienced throughout the eighties and into the early nineties. What a waste.

You are right, R290.

But these sex stories are so shocking! 30 guys a night?!
