THE BAVTOWN SUN Friday. August 28. 1987 9-A 'Falcon Crest's' Lorenzo Lamas, Robin Greer engaged By FRANKSANELLO HOLLYWOOD - Lorenzo Lamas' father, Fernando, was a great Latin screen lover in the 1950s. His mother is actress Arlene Dahl, and his stepmother is Esther Williams. ; Robin Greer's mother was an internationally known fashion model, and her father directed XV commercials. Her aunt, Jane Greer, starred as Robert Mitchurn's lover in the 19-17 film noir classic "Out of the Past." Since both Lamas and Greer grew up in show biz families, it • seemed natural they would find something in common on the set of CBS-TVs "Falcon Crest." And since Lamas' and Greer's "FC" characters were indulging in a passionate romance, it wasn't too far-fetched a possibility that the young couple might actually fall in love between takes. "Falcon Crest" executive producer Jeff Freilich remembers that Lamas fell for his beautiful new co-star almost immediately: ; "Lorenzo asked me who Robin Greer was, so 1 introduced them. Then I didn't see either of them for the next two days." ."In the first scene we did together (last season), we were 15 feet apart, and the chemistry clicked immediately." Lamas exults. "1 was leaning over the balcony with Jane (Wyman). Robin was there leading an aerobics class. I asked her right away if she would be rny girlfriend." Confirms Greer: "Yeah, he asked me the first day. I wondered how many girls he'd already asked that afternoon." Despite Lamas' idea of chemistry (and the couple's supposed "disappearance"). Greer confides that she was not immediately smitten by Lamas. At the time, she was divorcing her husband, an architect/real estate tycoon, and wasn't exactly prim-' ed for a new relationship. "I kept trying to get Lorenzo interested in mv sister." Greer recalls. "She was dying to meet him. She had such a crush on him." Says Lamas: "She kept pulling out these passport photos of her sister to show me." Aside from her divorce, other considerations prompted Greer to keep Lamas at a distance emotionally. She admits to initially believing what she read in the tabloids about Lamas' bad-boy behavior. Greer explains: "Once in a while you're in the grocery store looking for gum and he's on the cover of almost every tab. I was very wary of Lorenzo. I expected not to like him at all. "I expected him to be a real kind of 'player' — egotistical. I couldn't imagine there would be a really sweet person behind that kind of image he had. He really proved me wrong. He's a great, loving, giving person." Greer adds that she really didn't trust Lamas for several months after they met: "I didn't believe he was for real. 1 was just waiting for him to see me on the street one day and walk in the other direction, or say. 'Oh. hi. babe!' and keep on walking.'" Lamas' "association" with Greer has evolved into a full- fledged engagement — it will be his third marriage and her second.
