He was a terrific Mouse, but he didn't want to come back for the sequels because he felt "ambivalence" about playing the role, according to Armistead Maupin.

He was indeed wonderful as Mouse. He also had a stellar resume as a stage actor, on both sides of the Atlantic. Most notably, I suppose, as Louis in Angels in London, for which he was awarded the Olivier.

Sad to hear. TALES OF THE CITY was great on television and I find myself going back to the books often. I guess, back in the day, they were responsible for "binge reading" before binging was a thing.

I started reading the books in 1984.

He appeared at Boston's Day After Pride Block Party in 1994. It was funny because the word was he told people he was straight and was kind of uncomfortable but once up on stage he ripped that shirt of to squeals and applause. Also on the bill, RuPaul. "Who would've thought it would be in to be gay?" There also this pop group that flirted with sapphic imagery that might have been called Woman2Woman and they were really hot. Kind of like a risqué Spice Girls.  I later read that they had many collections of women touring under that name, like a lesbian boy band factory. Anyway, Marcus. Handsome, good actor, great mustache, perhaps shy but aware enough to rip that shirt off when the time calls for it. Rest In Pecs, Marcus.

He was nominated, but he didn't win.

D'Amico lost the Olivier to Nigel Hawthorne in ''The Madness of George III.''

However, when D'Amico made his Broadway debut in ''An Inspector Calls'' in 1984, he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Drama Desk Awards and received a Theatre World Award.

(-_Q) Thanks. I knew that but I guess I had a "just being nominated is as good as winning" moment.

Remember when he kissed Billy Campbell on Tales In The City and it created a bomb scare.
