Regardless, women swooned over his Dr. Kildare character. And, who can forget the beach scene in "The Thorn Birds"? He was eye candy for a generation of women.
I never wanted to believe the rumors about his orientation. Nevertheless, he is a gorgeous man.....and a terrific actor.

I don't think I ever saw Dr. Kildare, but his part in The Thornbirds really got me. There is something so 'something' about unrequited love, especially when there is an electricity between the two. When Meggie and the priest FINALLY get together and then must separate, and be totally apart and untouchable --- well ---they made it very believable. And that is what acting is all about. What Chamberlain does in his own life is fine with me. He never pushed himself in anyones faces. I'm pleased that he has spoken out, and I'm sorry he had to go thru all that 'guilt' for so many years. I wish him well.
