Andrew Stevens, the son of actress Stella Stevens, entered the family business in 1976, appearing with his mom in Las Vegas Lady. Within a few years, the younger Stevens was one of the most sought-after beefcake leads in Hollywood, starring in such films as Massacre at Central High (1976), The Fury (1978) and The Boys in Company C (1978), and appearing in the regular role of Andrew Thorpe on the 1977 TV western The Oregon Trail. His stardom was secured when he played the central role of Phillip Kent in the syndicated miniseries The Bastard (1978) and its equally well-received follow-up, The Rebels (1979). Stevens' subsequent TV gigs included the weekly series Code Red (1981, as Ted Rorchek), Emerald Point NAS (1983-84, as Lt. Glenn Mathews) and Dallas (1987 season only, as Casey Denault). He was briefly married to actress Kate Jackson, with whom he starred in a 1979 TV-movie remake of Topper. In recent years, Andrew Stevens has both starred in and directed several low-budget thrillers, among them Terror Within 2 (1990), Night Eyes 3 (1993), and Scorned (1994), and has also directed episodes of such weekly TVers as Silk Stalkings, Swamp Thing, and Walker: Texas Ranger.
