Cape Town - Patrick Duffy is still turning heads 30 years after playing handsome Bobby Ewing in the hit series Dallas – and we reckon, at 69, he still looks mighty fine!

The thick black hair that helped turn him into one of TV’s hottest hunks might be gone, replaced with a slicked back grey mane complete with ponytail.

But that devilish twinkle in the eye still remains making him a true silver fox!

The actor was spotted in Germany with former Baywatch star David Hasselhof where they attended the Saturday night entertainment show Welcome to Carmen Nebel, Daily Mail reports.

But he returns to the USA next week for a special meet-and-greet event at the Ewing Mansion in Southfork, Texas, alongside Linda Grey, who played Sue Ellen.

He joined the cast of Dallas in 1978 until its cancellation in 1991. He then reprised his role as Bobby Ewing in TNT’s remake of Dallas, which aired in the US from 2012 to 2014.

Speaking about the reboot, Patrick said he likes the fact that they’ve made Bobby not so perfect anymore, according to The Mirror.

"He’s a real human being. We were stuck in the 1980s' TV mind-set, where the good guy had to be good, but it’s not like television now, where we have so many flawed heroes.”

While he is mainly known as a TV actor, he appeared in the movie Trafficked last year alongside Ashley Judd. Inspired by real characters it follows three girls from America, Nigeria and India who are trafficked through an elaborate global network and end up enslaved in a Texas brothel.
