Early Life and Career Beginnings

Lorenzo Fernando Lamas was born on January 20, 1958, in Santa Monica, California, in a family of actors. His parents were the popular forties performers Fernando Lamas and Arlene Dahl, and when they divorced, his dad married Esther Williams, an actress, and a swimmer.[2]


As someone who grew up around people in the film industry, it was only natural for him to develop a desire for acting.

Besides being raised by a bunch of actors, Lorenzo's family's friend circle was also filled with movie stars. Jane Wyman, the Academy Award actress, was his father's best friend and later acting coach and colleague.[3]

During his teenage years, Lorenzo attended the private school Admiral Farragut Academy (where he has been listed as a notable alumnus)[4] . He joined Tony Barr's Film Actors Workshop, which allowed him to begin his acting career.

He made his acting debut in 1977 with a small role as Tony Sobransky in the TV series "Switch," showing up in the episodes "Thirty Thousand Witnesses" and "Eden's Gate."[5]

During the seventies and the eighties, Lorenzo was featured in one episode of the family TV series "Fantasy Island," in five episodes of "Love Boat" and even managed to land a silent role in "Grease" and act alongside John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.[6]

He continued having more minor roles in multiple TV series and movies, but the part of Lance Cumson in "Falcon Crest" gave him his big break.

Falcon Crest, award nominations, and later career

"Falcon Crest" was a nine-season American soap opera that aired between 1981 and 1990.

Besides Lorenzo, Jane Wyman, his father's friend, also starred in the TV series. The two developed a fantastic friendship and got along incredibly well, even off-camera.[7]

Lorenzo played Lance Cumson, the nephew of Angela Channing (Jane Wyman), who has been falsely accused of murder four times.

For the role of Lance Cumson, the actor needed to audition twice and beat five other actors. Additionally, the part was initially considered for another actor, William R. Moses, but it was later given to Lorenzo.

He is the only actor in the cast that starred in all 227 episodes of the show. Lorenzo also received one Golden Globe nomination and two for a Soap Opera Digest Award.

While filming Falcon Crest, Lorenzo also starred in the American dance film "Body Rock,” which" unfortunately, was poorly received by the audience. He received the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor for his role in the movie.[8]

However, the song "Fools Like Me" he performed in the film hit the Billboard Top 100.

Lorenzo continued acting in multiple other movies, but this time he was featured in action movies where he showed his martial-arts skills.

His next more significant acting engagement was in the TV series "Renegade," which ran for 110 episodes and was shown in 100 countries worldwide.

In the early 2000s, the actor was featured in another soap opera, "The Bold and the Beautiful," and stayed in the same one until 2008.

He continued working as a performer until 2016, when he decided to make a career switch and become a pilot.

Private Life

Lorenzo Lamas has been married five times and has six kids; five daughters and one son.

Three of his kids follow in their father's footsteps and are actors like him.
