Italian actor and boxer, sometimes credited as William Bird.
From 1925 to 1934, he was a professional boxer, with a lifetime record of 54 wins (17 by knockout), 16 losses (9 by knockout), and 3 draws, but later became a film actor. He had roles in at least 116 films between the 1940s and the 1980s.
Fiermonte married Madeleine Talmage Force on 27 November 1933 in New York City, but they were divorced on 11 June 1938. He was only four years older than his stepson during the marriage, John Jacob Astor VI. In 1944 he got engaged in Italy to princess Giulia von Rio, but they never married.
He entered his Maserati in the 1937 Vanderbilt Cup auto race in Westbury, New York, but was not allowed to participate because he had no formal auto racing experience.
Fiermonte died on 22 March 1993 in Mentana, Italy.
