Personal Quote:

Do I like acting? Let me put it this way: they pay me to do it what if I was rich I would pay them to let me do.


While working in Italy in the mid-70s, because of his resemblance with Bud Spencer, Paul Smith teamed up with Terrence Hill look-alike actor Antonio Cantafora(re-christened Michael Coby)and played in a series of action-packed comedies. See more »
