The English-born actor had few peers during the Reagan era as a heartthrob to gay men. His performance in this farce attracted a lot of attention, including the eye of renowned movie producer Allan Carr, who soon cast the sexy young performer as Michael Carrington in Grease 2, the hotly-anticipated follow-up to the mega-musical.
I mean this character is a legendary neurotic. In many ways the part presaged self-analysis and all these terms that are now in the current parlance.Just How Well Do Hayley & Julia Mills Know Each Other?
He certainly knows how to milk a situation and make it all about him. I thought Am I really right for Felix? His self-absorption and all of his various ailments and hypochondria and obsession with cleanliness.
In your real life are you more like Felix or Oscar?
Maxwell Caulfield - Wikipedia
The state of my desk would indicate Oscar. They say that once a man hits 50 your overall personality is pretty much set in stone. The roles in the theater have provided my better opportunities. I can genuinely say that this is my first true character part. It may be the start of a new phase in my career in terms of not trading on looks.
The reality is that we all age. Well, some people are ageless. Somehow that boy refuses to get past 38, it seems.
What was your first job when you came to New York? I bragged my way into the production that was set in a gay resort in Florida and was about a mix up of Louis Vuitton bags. I came out at the end of the show as the new lifeguard. I brought the curtain down. That was the gag of the show. These two hoteliers had finally gotten their rambunctious guests off the property after a lot of mayhem and their compensation was a new lifeguard so yours truly came out in a pair of white Speedos.
You must have been very popular. What do you remember about those early days in New York? My cast members took me to gay discos after the show and after hours and it was pretty eye-opening. Before the damned plague hit it was absolutely party central. Caulfield was big news, right up until the film flopped.
You have to put the ball in the back of the net. Right afterwards she did Scarface with Al Pacino. That showed that she had range, that she was versatile.

Well, I was stuck for a while with a reputation as a bubblegum actor. There was one point where I was considering working for a Jaguar dealership out in the US. They said they wanted an ambassador, but really all they wanted was a salesman with a British accent. I knew I wanted to excel at something and around that time they decided to put on a production of The Boyfriend. They drafted in some girls from one of the nearby schools which was a bit of a bonus.
How the charming Maxwell Caulfield slipped up on Grease 2
Initially I was partnered with the prettiest girl there was, but when it came to the final cast I ended with the most homely looking girl. It was an early taste of the unpredictable machinations of the acting business. You can still be in previews, tweaking and polishing a show, but the luxury of time to perfect anything has gone. It was a good line, which is why I remember it, but a little unfair. I think it strengthens your pedigree.
