Gordon Thomson (I)

A native of Canada, Thomson made a career of playing despicable characters. His breakthrough came in 1982 when he was cast as the pathologically evil Adam Carrington in the popular nighttime soap opera Dynasty (1981). When Dynasty ended in 1989, he moved on to daytime soaps, and became the third actor to play Mason Capwell in Santa Barbara (1984). See full bio »

Personal Quote:

He sued Aaron Spelling Productions in the early 1990s for not telling him early enough about the mini-series Dynasty: The Reunion (1991) (Thomson had starred in the series Dynasty (1981)) from 1982-1989). Thomson had become a castmember of the daytime soap Santa Barbara (1984) and was unable to take time off because of the conflicting schedules. See more »
