Richard Chamberlain: I Wouldn't Advise Gay Actors to Come Out

Richard Chamberlain

Richard Chamberlain, the Dr. Kildare heartthrob who came out in 2003, is advising other gay actors to stay in the closet.

Who was that gorgeous Russian ...

Say U.N.C.L.E.: secret agents McCallum and Vaughn

Question: Who was that gorgeous Russian actor in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.? Not Napoleon, the other man. Thanks, hon.

Answer: You're quite welcome, hon. And let me point out that while Russian U.N.C.L.E. agent Ilya Kuryakin, was played by Scottish actor David McCallum, the actor would most likely accept "gorgeous" over some of the other adjectives love-struck women came up with at the time.

Premise: A fondly remembered medical series about sensitive intern (and later resident) James Kildare and his mentor, Dr. Leonard Gillespie, at Blair General Hospital. One of the most popular shows of the 1960s, it made a national heartthrob of star Richard Chamberlain.
