Tony Fields

Watch the video
Tony Fields and fellow dancer Alex Cole originated the male dance roles on Solid Gold. He was a member of the cast when the show premiered in the fall of 1979. Tony appeared on the show for four seasons, departing in 1984.

Tony left Solid Gold to assist Michael Peters (Peters' choreography includes music videos such as Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and "Beat It," and Lionel Richie's "Running with the Night").

Tony, who was a graduate of Davis High School, was a featured actor/dancer in the movie "A Chorus Line" and in this video, taken at a Davis High School assembly, he describes the process of being cast in that movie.

Tony died of AIDS-related cancer in 1995, at age 36.
