Italian film, television and stage actor who appeared in 65 films between 1957 and 1988.

Palmer was the adopted son of the stage actress Kiki Palmer (from whom he inherited his stage name). After leaving his law studies, he debuted in 1955 on radio, after being spotted at an audition for singers, and then worked for two years in the Company of Prose of "Radio Roma". In 1957 Palmer made his television debut with L'avaro, directed by Vittorio Cottafavi; the same year he also made his theatrical debut at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, in the revue I pallinisti. From then, while continuing to appear in prestigious stage works it was his television performances that assured him popularity and professional satisfaction, thanks to the numerous successful TV films and TV series in which he starred.

Palmer was also a versatile film character actor, mainly active in commedia all'italiana and poliziotteschi film genres. He also was a radio and television host, and a popular voice actor. He died of cancer in Milan on 4 June 1988 at age 58.
