Supporting and character actor Marcus D'Amico is primarily associated with the stage in Europe and the U.S., but he has also made the occasional, memorable foray into film. Born in Germany to an American father and a British mother, D'Amico was raised in the U.K. He first performed on stage, making a name for himself, in a 1977 revival of Oliver! in London. From there on, D'Amico specialized in musicals. In 1980, D'Amico made his film debut with a small supporting role in Superman II. He later moved to Los Angeles, took a break from acting, and spent a while as a clothing retailer. He returned to the British stage in the mid-'80s, but still continued to have a sporadic film career that included small roles in Jon Amiel's The Silent Twins (1985) and Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket (1987). Fans of the PBS miniseries Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City (1994) will remember D'Amico for his vivid portrayal of the perennially lonely, would-be lover Mouse Tolliver.
