Lorenzo Lamas (born January 20, 1958) is an American actor and reality television participant. Lamas is known for playing Lance Cumson, the irresponsible grandson of Angela Channing (played by Jane Wyman) on the popular 1980s soap opera Falcon Crest, Reno Raines on the 1990s crime drama Renegade, and Hector Ramirez on the daytime soap opera The Bold and The Beautiful. Lamas also served as a judge on ABC television's short-lived reality show Are You Hot?

Lorenzo Lamas was born in Santa Monica, California, the son of the late Argentine actor Fernando Lamas and Norwegian-American actress Arlene Dahl. He is the stepson of the swimming film starlet, Esther Williams, who married his father when Lorenzo was 11 years old. Williams was also the best friend of Lamas's Falcon Crest co-star, the late Jane Wyman. Lamas was brought up in Pacific Palisades, California and moved to New York City in 1971, when he was 13 years old. He graduated from the Admiral Farragut Academy in Pine Beach, New Jersey, in 1975.

His first marriage, to Victoria Hilbert, ended in 1983. Abby Dalton, his "Falcon Crest" (1981) colleague, introduced Lorenzo to her then, 17-year-old daughter Kathleen Kinmont. Lamas meanwhile had a short (two-year) marriage to the press spokeswoman for "Falcon Crest", 26-year-old Michelle Smith, which produced a son (one of Lamas' "Falcon Crest" co-stars, Daphne Ashbrook, accused Lamas of fathering her child, also). After their divorce, Lorenzo and Kathleen married on Jan. 25 1985, in Las Vegas. That marriage ended with divorce, too, but they continued together in the TV series "Renegade" (1992). In the middle of season four, Kathleen was cut out because of Lorenzo's interest in Shauna Sand (then known as Shauna Sand).

Lamas is an avid Harley-Davidson motorcycle enthusiast, collects them and takes part in charity rides for a transplant fund.
