Where is Richard Chamberlain these days? I haven't seen him in a movie or mini-series since The Thorn Birds back in the 1980s.
—Patricia Rains, Conway, Ark.

Chamberlain reprised his priestly role as Father Ralph de Bricassart in The Thorn Birds: The Missing Years (1996), and appeared in another mini-series, Too Rich: The Secret Life of Doris Duke, in 1999. In 2003, at 69, he published his autobiography, Shattered Love. Last year, he was on tour with Scrooge: The Musical, a stage adaptation of the holiday classic. "Scrooge really finds his heart in his exploration," Chamberlain told an interviewer, "which is what life is all about."
