Remember Sully from 'Dr Quinn'? Here's how he looks now
Several actors have been labeled as ‘heartthrobs’ throughout the years. One of the most beloved ones in the mid-90 was Joe Lando.
The 56-year-old man is most recognized for playing Byron Sully on the TV series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. At that point, many women fell in love with his long hair, wide shoulders, and romantic character.
He worked next to Jane Seymore, who portrayed Dr. Michaela ‘Mike’ Quinn, and became a real star during the time the show was on people’s screens.
Lando’s acting career began in 1986, when he portrayed a shore patrolman in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. After that, he worked as an extra in a couple of shows, including Nightingales and Beauty and the Beast in 1989 and 1990 respectively.
After that, he landed his first important role as Jake Harrison in One Life to Live. Thanks to his outstanding performance, the creators of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman got interested and hired him for the role of Sully.
He later starred in 22 episodes of Higher Ground, where he also took the role of Executive Producer. During the 2000s, he was present in a handful of projects, including NCIS, but never landed an important role.
In the last decade, his popularity has been reduced as he has worked in low budget films such as Casa Vita, The Untold Story, and Paloma’s Fight, his most recent project wherein he portrayed Sam Moses.
Even though his relevance in the entertainment world faded away when Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman aired its last episode, he is still remembered as a heartthrob for all the scenes he and Seymore shared during the show.
In 1993, he was named one of People's 50 Most Beautiful People in the World, which means that not only his fans but also important celebrity news outlets considered him a ‘female-crush.’
