Gordon Thomson was born on 2 March 1945 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. His nickname is Gordy. Height 6'2. When the
Canadian native enrolled in Montreal's McGill University at age 18, he was headed for a more traditional career - architecture,
law or whatnot. "Deciding to become an actor was very late-coming," he sighs, noting that it took 17 years of struggle, mostly
in Canada, before he was suddenly wandering around the Carrington Mansion every Wednesday night.
At the same time, he
has had to deal with difficulties in his personal life. "My father died when I was 18," he begins. "He left home; it was sort
of messy." Indeed, Thomson pere was killed while driving drunk with a girlfriend, prompting Thomson's mother to divorce him
posthumously. The actor's one marriage ended in 1982, and he has remained notoriously guarded about his relationships ever
since. The disappointments and damages have left him philosophical, and understanding of his characters' motivations. "I think
we all have a dark side to us," he says. "I find that I can't trust sunny-natured people, people who are constantly sunny.
I think that's major denial."
By his own account, Thomson lives a somewhat reclusive existence nowadays. he eschews team
sports, partly because of a prohibitive leg injury and partly because he just doesn't like 'em. He'd rather tend to the garden
outside his rented Encino, CA home, sharing his time with four dogs (one is deaf and senile, two arthritic) and a cat. He
had another dog, Jack, who was put to sleep when even acupuncturists couldn't cure his stomach disorder.
