Adrian Paul Hewett (born 29 May 1959), better known as Adrian Paul, is an actor best known for his role on the television series Highlander: The Series as Duncan MacLeod. He was born in London, England in 1959, the first of three brothers to an Italian mother and a British father. Paul first became a model, then a dancer and choreographer. In 1985, he left Europe for the United States to pursue a dance and modeling career. In 1998, he founded The Peace Fund charitable organization.

As ruggedly handsome as the men on the cover of romance novels, Adrian Paul is a television heartthrob to legions of swooning fans. As the kilt-wearing Scottish swordsman Duncan MacLeod on TV's The Highlander, he prefers to do his own stunts when he can. Born and raised in England, he came to the U.S. in the '80s as a model and dancer, but also excelled at soccer, martial arts, and choreography. His first role was as a ballet dancer on the TV series The Colbys. After playing Prospero in The Masque of the Red Death, he briefly joined the casts of both the '90s revival of Dark Shadows and War of the Worlds. As the star of The Highlander TV series from 1992 to 1997, he also reprised the role in the movies Highlander: The Gathering and Highlander: Endgame. After the series was canceled, he had starring roles in the feature-length thrillers Dead Men Can't Dance, Susan's Plan, Convergence, and The Breed. Returning to the fantasy-action genre, he played Sir Lancelot in the 2000 U.K. production of Merlin: The Return. In 2001, he starred in the straight-to-video release The Void, the action-packed Storm Watch with Coolio, and the thriller Nemesis Game.

Personal life

Paul was married to actress Meilani Paul but later divorced. Since 1997, Paul has worked extensively for his charity organization PEACE (Protect, Educate, Aid Children Everywhere) under the auspices of Athletes and Entertainers for Kids, which puts into action the "School Makes a Difference" program, taking celebrities into schools and community centers to mentor children.
