Biography

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.
He graduated from McGill University in Montreal with an honors degree in English and appeared in dozens of stage productions (including "Godspell"). He eventually moved to the United States to continue his stage work and briefly appeared as Aristotle Benedict-White on "Ryan's Hope" before garnering the role of Adam Carrington on the primetime show "Dynasty" in 1982. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for his work on "Dynasty" in 1989, but was out of work when the show was
suddenly cancelled.
From there, he landed the role of Mason on "Santa Barbara." Gordon Thomson was chosen for the role of Mason Capwell on "Santa Barbara" in October 1990. He took over the role from Terry Lester, who had opted to leave the show. In the late 1990s, he appeared as Patrick Baker on "The Young and the Restless" for a few months. He was seen as A.J. Deschanel on "Sunset Beach." He also did guest stints on such primetime shows as "Murder, She Wrote," "Silk Stalkings," "Baywatch," "The Nanny," and "Beverly Hills, 90210."
