Maxwell Caulfield

Born: November 23rd 1959 Glasgow, Scotland.

Spouse: Actress Juliet Mills

Maxwell Caulfield began his film acting career in a big way. He was chosen from thousands of potential applicants to appear as Michael Carrington in the sequel to the most successful musical film of all time. Both he and his co-star, a fresh faced young newcomer called Michelle Pfeiffer, were hailed as 'The Next Overnight Sensations' and GREASE 2 was going to make him a star. However the film was a critical and commercial disaster, and his career was seriously effected. Despite excellent performances in the gritty and disturbing 'The Boys Next Door' and a convincing turn in the award-winning TV movie 'The Parade', his only widely seen role in the 80s was his inspired portrayal of bad boy Miles Colby in the soaps 'Dynasty' and 'The Colbys'. Since then he has appeared in a number of uninspired B-movies and DTV schlock. However, his stage work allowed him to demonstrate his gift. He won rave reviews for his roles on Broadway including 'Entertaining Mr.Sloane' and 'An Inspector Calls'. He also headlined the Off-Broadway smash 'My Night With Reg'. Those performances, along with his widely cherished turn as sleazy pop star Rex Manning in the film 'Empire Records', led to him winning the prize role of Bob in Tom DiCillo's latest 'The Real Blonde' opposite such luminaries as Matthew Modine, Kathleen Turner, Steve Buscemi, Darryl Hannah and Elizabeth Berkley. So it seems that Maxwell is finally back on track and, after the great notices for 'The Real Blonde' (which was critically praised at the Deauville and Sundance film festivals), we can look forward to a renaissance, and some superb performances from quite possibly the most underrated actor of his generation. Maxwell is married to Juliet Mills (20 years his senior) whom he met while starring in 'The Elephant Man' on Broadway in 1980.
