My Highland Hunny!!!!!!!!!!!

Being tall, dark and handsome may not be a prerequisite for achieving immortality, but for Adrian Paul, it hasn't hurt. As star of "Highlander: The Series," the syndicated action-fantasy TV show based on the big-screen trilogy of the same name, the raven-haired actor, 38, plays Duncan MacLeod , a brooding, 400-year-old Scottish nobleman and "immortal" who swashbuckles his way through the centuries, offing bad guys.

*Born: May 29, 1959

*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 career in modeling or dance. 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 for roles as an actor. His first role came on the ABC television series, "The Colbys" 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 "Beauty and the Beast" in 1988. His first film appearance was in the 1989 film "Last Rites" with Tom Berenger.

He went on to have a starring role in the Roger Corman film, "Masque of the Red Death", a re-telling of the Edgar Allen Poe tale. He appeared in a regular role in the second season of the television series "War of the Worlds" and made a pilot for CBS Television for a series called "The Owl". 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, "Highlander". *Biography written by.. Jimmi Smith-Schneider
