Acting Career

On August 13th, 2002, Winsor Harmon threw his hat into the "music ring" and without blinking, release an album of songs titled "Stars of Texas". It is an album of songs that showcase his positive, uplifting and downright magnetic personality. He sings equally of heart-broken relationships and wild nights out with the guys.

To make that happen, Harmon decided to pay the bills with modeling. However, a well-known agency in Dallas not only turned him down because of his bulky football physique (at 230 pounds!), but also predicted he would never work in that industry. To prove the naysayer wrong, he downsized within months on a vegetarian diet and was immediately hired by a competing agency.

Prior to his AMC stint, Harmon landed an international modeling contract that allowed him to travel extensively throughout Europe. He also filmed numerous commercials, including an infamous stint which earn him a new nickname, The Marlboro Man.

“Philanthropist” is a word that can also be attributed to Harmon. After Hurricane Katrina in 2008, Harmon, whose hometown was devastated, worked tirelessly with the Red Cross in helping those who had lost their homes due to the treacherous storm. He continues his efforts to help Katrina victims to this day.
