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.

He had it all. Great looks, Hot body, awesome voice. If there was any doubt he was gay, though... check out his moves in this awful stinker of a movie featuring Nai Bonet, the dead eye and moneotoned-voice actress who ever stood in front of the camera. Must see to be believed.

as a 7 year old queen, I watched the show with both hunks on it.

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 remember Anthony. Gorgeous. He was also good friends with Whoopi Goldberg and use to be her "date" at industry functions. He also had a cameo in JUMPIN' JACK FLASH.

It was strange, when he took over for Hexum. They hardly re-shot the opening; just shot Hamilton in Hexum's scenes and slipped them in.

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."

So far most Hollywood types who knew him or worked with him, sadly have very little to say about him. The ones who do respond just say he was a good guy. Any truthful information would be appreciated.

Tony on Cover Up 1984-85

by Anonymousreply 9106/02/2013

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.

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.

[quote] One of my favorite actors from the 80s and early 90s. Epitome of a rugged man with class.

I take it you never saw the dancing scene in Nocturna...

Ha, I have seen the Nocturna dancing scene. Cheesy and funny. Much different from his later roles.

Tony

by Anonymousreply 15909/21/2013

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.

It kind of shakes your faith that the good looking people have it the easiest in this world.

I mean, if a guy who looked like Hamilton had to beg people to fuck him, what chance do us more average looking people have at getting it done.

BTW, look at the pics in the link from below. Dick Van Dyke's son, Barry, looks so much like Anthony, don't you think?

Hamilton and Barry Van Dyke do look very similar.

Tony in the Twilight Zone episode.

Anyone out there who had known Tony personally? Seems like so little information out there on this rugged actor.

Some people like to beg. It's roleplay

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?

To those on this thread who imply that because he was gorgeous and took advantage of it in terms of being able to have sex a lot- no one knew. Do you get it? No one knew. And when we did it was too late. His death was a tragedy. He was a nice as can be.

Now those who "bareback" now- are nuts.

Tony in Fatal Instinct

Tony was in a movie titled Samson and Delilah produced by Gregory Harrison. Tony's starring role. Such a unique rugged old Hollywood acting style. He did first appear on film in Nocturna back in 78 0r 79. He also did a Hanes pantyhose commercial in which he dances to attract a classy (leggy)lady.

Better quality of the video @ R170

I like his line in R172 better than I like him: "If you find some guy who’s got more to offer than I have, then I’ll fuck him."

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.

If he died in '95, is there a ballpark figure of when he likely caught it?

The deaths of all those young men is sad, but there's something particularly sad about dying just before ARVs turned things around for many.

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.
