Bud Spencer



Bud Spencer was born as Carlo Pedersoli on October 31st 1929 in Napoli, Italy. He started his career as a swimmer and attended the Olympic Summergames in both Helsinki, Finland in 1952 and Melbourne, Australia in 1956. In 1951 he made his first movie Quo Vadis. In 1960 he gets married to Maria Amato and she gives birth to their son, Guiseppe, in 1961 and in 1962 to a daughter, Christiana. He makes his first movie with Mario Girotti in 1967 God forgives... I donít and at this time Carlo changes his name to Bud Spencer. He chose that name because he is a big fan of Spencer Tracyís and because he thought the English word "Bud" was very funny related to his figure. In 1972 his youngest daughter, Diamante, was born. Today he lives in Rom, Italy still working as an actor. Bud Spencer (Black and White)


Terence Hill



Terence Hill (Don Camillo) Mario Girotti was born in Venice, Italy on March 23rd 1939. He made his first movie when he was 12 years old in 1951, Holiday for Gangsters. His biggest success as an actor was the two Trinity movies They call me Trinity (1971) and Trinity is STILL my name (1972) where he co-starred with Bud Spencer. Mario Girotti changed his name to Terence Hill in 1967. Itís a combination of the author of a Latin book, Terenzio, and the maiden name of his American wife Lori Hill. Whom he married on July 23 1967. On 11 July 1969 his wife gave birth to his son, Jess Hill, who has also been both the writer and an actor (telegraph clerk) in the movie "Botte di Natale" (1994). Today Terence Hill and his wife live in Massachusetts as film producer and actor.
