Born and raised in London, England, Adrian Paul boasts a colorful background. Adrian's mother was Italian and his father British.  

Around age 10 he attended a Rugby school, and tried out for the Wimbledon team when he was around sixteen. He played semi-pro soccer for Bromley Town and Beckenham Town teams too.

In 1979 his current  girlfriend submitted a photo of him for a contest, and he won!
He began some modeling,  then as a dancer and choreographer he traveled with a small dance troupe across Europe. His jazz ballet background helped!

Adrian is a world traveler and speaks English, French, and Italian fluently as well as several other languages.

In 1985, he left Europe and came to the United States to pursue a dance and modeling career.

Even though he had studied Shakespeare and performed in school plays when he was younger, acting was not a focus.

He signed with the Ford Modeling Agency in New York. Waiting tables in restaurants and bars, he was down to $12 in his pocket when his big break came.


His television first role came on the ABC television series, "The Colbys"
as the Russian expatriate ballet dancer, Kolya in 1986/87. Adrian only appeared in the 2nd Season.

Appearances in "The Break" (playing Paul) and "Loyalties" (as Lorenzo) at the Bromley Theater Playhouse gave Adrian his love of theater.
   This led him to a role in the off- Broadway play "Bouncers" in 1987  at the Minetta Lane Theater.

Early television appearances include: "Beauty and the Beast" in 1988.
Guest appearances on "Shooter" for NBC/Paramount and
"Straight And Narrow" * a BBC TV Play

His first film appearance was in the 1989 film "Last Rites"

In 1988 Adrian starred in the Roger Corman film, "Masque of the Red Death," a retelling of the Edgar Allen Poe tale.

Adrian went on to appear in a regular role in the second season of the television
series "War of the Worlds"  and in 1989 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 role with the most
prominence to date...that of Duncan MacLeod in the syndicated series, "Highlander."

From there, Adrian has pursued developmental roles/characters
that allow him to stretch his acting talents ......from a vampire,
to a gay Naval Captain.  He seems to enjoy playing "odd" characters, ones that spur growth in his stable of repertoire.  He has been involved in several Indie (independent) movies.

Some roles Adrian has been considered for include that of Caledon 'Cal' Hockley in 1997's huge hit "Titanic," the role that went finally to Billy Zane, and Adrian's name has been bandied about many, mnay times for the role of James Bond, "007." A role in "Lord of the Rings" was discussed and Adrian himself has mentioned that he'd be interested in a role in 'Game of Thrones (2011- ). We fans eagerly await each and every one, no matter what the movie.

Each movie is a new character, a new face, a new adventure!

Adrian has studied various Martial Arts forms for many years, beginning about 1988.

As of 2006 he had studied with Vernon Rieta for at least 14 years. With his "Sensei"  (master teacher) Adrian has studied the Kung Fu artform Hung Gar extensively.

In addition, Adrian has dabbled in Aikido, Tae-Kwon-Do, Qi Gong, Karate, and boxing. He admits playing with the styles of Saam ying kuen and Choy Lee Fut. He currently has been dabbling in Tai Chi and at the HLWW9 event (LA, 2009) he taught several classes to the fans.

He has also done extensive sword training with the Japanese Katana and many other weapons with Bob Anderson and F.Braun McAsh. (MA-Insider June 2002)

With each movie, play or tv role that requires a physical fight scene, Adrian intensely studies and choreographs with whoever his co-star might be, gaining even more knowledge and experience.

None of this is set in stone!! Adrian is versatile, well-read, well-versed in so many things it's hard to pin him down on anything. His answers change almost like the season. :>)

Favorite authors: Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams and Anne Rice

Favorite Music: R & B, Mozart, Reggae, and Enigma (but I am sure it has changed again!)

Hobbies include: Golf, Volleyball, Reading, Soccer and Tennis
Adrian is still a soccer fan and plays local soccer when able. He is also an avid Poker player and enters Celebrity CharityTournaments regularly.

On a pre-1989 talent agency handout, Adrian listed these as some of his abilitites:
Squash, Tennis, Soccer, Jet Skiing, Water Skiing, Snow Skiing, Martial Arts, Motorcycle Skills, Horseback Riding.
