Biography

The boyishly handsome D'Amico won the hearts of TV viewers with his portrayal of the hopelessly romantic Michael 'Mouse' Tolliver who constantly searches for Mr. Right in the PBS miniseries "Armistead Maupin's 'Tales of the City'" (1994). Raised in the UK by an American father and English mother, he began his career playing the lead in a 1977 London stage revival of Lionel Bart's "Oliver!" D'Amico continued to appear in stage musicals (notably on roller skates in Lloyd Webber's "Starlight Express") before making his feature debut in a small role in "Superman II" (1980). After moving to Los Angeles, he abandoned acting and for a time worked as a clothing salesman.
