Dancer, actor. Although he was born Anthony Dean Campos in Stafford, Kansas, he moved to Davis, California, where his career began in gymnastics. Tony took the last name of Fields from his stepfather Max because his parents divorced when he was four. He started dance training when he won scholarships to the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts (studying drama and voice), and also at Roland Dupree Academy of Dance. He was hired as a dancer for the TV show Solid Gold, and had only 2 years of formal training. He appeared in numerous music videos, including Michael Jackson's "Beat It" and "Thriller" videos and was also featured in the "Making of Thriller" special.
He also appeared in Lionel Richie's "Running with the Night." Other early TV appearances included "Lil Abner," "Bobby Vinton Rock and Rollers," and "The John Davidson Christmas Special." Tony also appeared in many films, but was probably best known for his role as "Sammi Curr" in the 1986 movie "Trick or Treat".
He died of cancer, secondary to the AIDS virus.
