Today, March 2 is Gordon Thomson’s birthday.
In the Fall of 1982, I was a 17 year old high school senior. That fall the prime time soap Dynasty began its third season. The Season 2 cliffhanger left Blake Carrington on a literal cliff: The oil tycoon was rendered unconscious on a mountaintop following a fight with a revenge driven Dr. Nick Toscanni (James Farentino). However, Toscanni’s wrath didn’t end there. The vengeful doctor orchestrated the kidnapping of Blake’s infant grandson, Blake Carrington Colby. With the kidnapping story line, viewers discovered that there was another Carrington heir: Long lost first born son Adam Alexander Carrington (Gordon Thomson) living in Billings, Montana under the name Michael Torrance. The irony was that Adam also had been kidnapped as a baby twenty-five years earlier.
From the first moment I saw Gordon Thomson on screen he instantly became a favorite actor of mine. In these pre-Internet days, it was a challenge researching performers. Still, I succeeded in finding out about Thomson’s background in classical theatre. As a Shakespeare aficionado and lover of other classical literature, learning about Thomson’s classical training further endeared him to me.
As a teenager, I remember wishing that I could interview him about his career. This long time wish came true thirty-four years later when I had the privilege of interviewing Gordon Thomson for The Nerdy Girl Express in 2016.
