Biography

American singer and handsome leading man who won a Tony in the Broadway musical "The Happy Time." He first played on Broadway as Sir Lancelot in "Camelot," 1960. With over 60 albums, he has credits of winning a Grammy, a Tony and a World Theater Award. Taking "South Pacific" on the road in 1986, he started the trend of taking Broadway shows on tour. His films have included "I'd Rather Be Rich," 1954 and "Honeymoon Hotel," 1964.

Goulet lived in Massachusetts until his father died, telling him on his deathbed that "God gave you a voice. You must sing." The family then moved to Edmonton, Canada where Goulet performed his first professional singing job in a concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. After high school he won a scholarship for singing to a music conservatory in Toronto.

After his success in "Camelot" as Sir Lancelot opposite Richard Burton and Julie Andrews, Goulet enjoyed dazzling years of Las Vegas appearances, hit albums and top-drawer club gigs. He had a short-run TV series in 1966, "Blue Light," the same year his nightclub and concert career took off after his LP, "My Love forgive Me," went gold. In 1968 he won a Tony for best actor in a Broadway musical, "The Happy Time."

By the mid-1970s, problems with drinking and marriage disrupted his singing and stage career. After his third marriage, his life began to straighten out, concert dates increased and a successful tour of "South Pacific." Once again his handsome looks draws crowds to hear him in the glitter of Las Vegas, and movies roles have come his way; most recently, "Naked Gun 2 1/2," "The Last Producer," and an animated feature called "Recess."

Goulet and first wife, Louise Longmore, had a daughter, Nicolette. In 1963, he made a second marriage, to singer Carol Lawrence; two sons, Christopher and Michael. Separate careers and Goulet's drinking drove them apart and they split up in 1975. They had a failed reconciliation in 1979 and a very public and acrimonious divorce in 1980. Two years later, in 1982, he married a Yugoslavian artist and photographer, Vera Novak, who conciliated his relationship with his estranged sons and became his business manager.

Goulet recovered in his Las Vegas home after undergoing prostate cancer surgery 12/07/1993. His illness was diagnosed in August 1992. Goulet died at age 73 on October 30, 2007 in Los Angeles. The cause of his death was pulmonary fibrosis.
