Happy Birthday

Richard Chamberlain! 


On this special day as you celebrate your Birthday, 

here's wishing you a wonderful day and bright tomorrows!  

Life is a gift we're given each and every day.

Let's dream about tomorrow, but live for today.

To live a little, we've got to love a whole lot.


Love turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.


Life's a journey always worth taking.

Let's take time to smell the roses... and tulips...

and daffodils... and lilacs... and sunflowers...

Let's count blessings like children count stars.

The secret of a happy life isn't buried in a

treasure chest... it lies within our heart.

It's the little moments that make life big.


 Make memories today.

Celebrate our life! 


Here's a slideshow celebrating Richard Chamberlain's
82nd Birthday!

The video of the press conference held by Richard Chamberlain
at the Deauville American Film Festival in 1990 has been added
to the page dedicated to his tribute.

It is unfortunately of a very poor quality and this is the reason
why it had not been added earlier. Despite this
highly imperfect video and some translation inaccuracies
it is hoped the French visitors who do not understand English
will enjoy this rare document.

                    First Exclusive Interview                                         

On September 7, 2011 Richard Chamberlain granted an exclusive interview 

to this "Richard Chamberlain Webbiography". He talked about 

his career, his singing, his artwork and his writing,

and peppered his comments with several anecdotes, 

some hitherto unpublished.   


Reactions to or comments on the interview can be posted 

on the "Richard Chamberlain Webbiography" Facebook account. 


 1. Richard Chamberlain talks about his two
recent high tech and science fiction projects
                                       'Chuck' and 'Leverage' 



2. Richard Chamberlain underlines the
importance of all kinds of 'masks' for 
 an actor: in the 'Man in the Iron Mask'
the iron mask was totally terrifying!


3. Richard Chamberlain reminisces about
'Shogun': 'Shogun' was a wonderful experience,
I was not about to screw it up despite
cultural clashes between the Japanese
and American crew.

4. Richard Chamberlain on 'The Thorn Birds':
chemistry is impossible to define.


5. Richard Chamberlain commends the series
'Brothers & Sisters' for treating gay characters
just like people.


6. Richard Chamberlain: in all my projects
I learn about myself, in comedy I learn
a little more.

7.  Richard Chamberlain about his artwork: 
sometimes my paintings have a certain meaning
like 'Celestial Ardor' that expresses total
commitment of oneself to life.
For a man
 total commitment to life
is in part phallic.
