Bud Spencer


Italian actor, film maker and former professional swimmer. He is known for past roles in action-comedy films together with his long-time film partner Terence Hill. They both appeared in, produced and directed over 20 films together and thus became and still remain best friends to this present day.

Spencer was the first Italian to swim the 100 m freestyle in less than one minute, on 19 September 1950, when he swam the 100 m in 59.5s. In the 1951 Mediterranean Games, he won a silver medal in the same 100 m freestyle event. Spencer participated in the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki, Finland, reaching the semi-finals in the 100 m freestyle. Four years later, in Melbourne, he also reached the semi-finals in the same category.

Spencer met Terence Hill, his future film partner, on the set of Hannibal in 1959.

Spencer married Maria Amato in 1960, with whom he had three children: Giuseppe (1961), Christine (1962) and Diamante (1972). After appearing in Più forte, ragazzi!, Spencer became a jet airplane and helicopter pilot. In 2005, he entered politics.

Spencer died aged 86 on 27 June 2016 in Rome. Spencer was survived by his three children, five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
