A Life Story of Parker Stevenson, According to the Wiki
Richard Stevenson Parker, son of an investment advisor named Richard Stevenson and an actress named Sarah Meade, was born on June 4, 1952, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Known professionally as Parker Stevenson because of a collision of names with another actor, he started performing in commercials at an early age. Still, he got his big break by portraying the gorgeous preppy kid part of Frank in the series “The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries.”
Actor Ray Stevenson, famous in the ’80s and ’90s, reportedly has a net worth of $10 million as of early 2016. After divorcing actress Kirstie Alley in 1997, Stevenson allegedly received a $6 million settlement, which was considerable at the time and especially so for a guy. The actor now supports himself through acting, directing, and his newest hobby, photography.
Ten Million Dollars: Parker Stevenson’s Net Worth
Stevenson attended Brooks School in the Boston area after his formative years in Rye, New York. When Stevenson was just 14 years old, his mother kindled his interest in acting by getting him roles in television advertisements. A student of architecture at Princeton University, the aspiring actor also began acting studies there. In his final year of high school (1972), Stevenson received his first movie role in the critically acclaimed film A Separate Peace, which immediately elevated him to one of his generation’s most promising young performers. A few years later, in 1974, Stevenson participated in the television movie “Our Time,” and then in the film “Lifeguard,” which catapulted his acting career. His wealth began with these.
But his portrayal as Frank Hardy in “The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries” in 1977 placed Stevenson on the map in Hollywood. After the series ended in 1979, Stevenson was often given roles playing the same preppy kid. He finally broke out of that mold in 1981 when he played a rock star in the T.V. movie This House Possessed. Constantly, his wealth grew as a result of these factors.
The parts that Stevenson did on television shows, including “The Love Boat” in 1983, “Falcon Crest” from 1984–1985, and “North and South: Book II” in 1986, in which he portrayed a Civil War soldier, helped to keep him relevant and in demand. On the hit T.V. program Baywatch, Stevenson played an attorney who moonlights as a lifeguard. From the 1990s “All the Rivers Run 2” through 1992’s “Are You Lonesome Tonight” and “Shadow of a Stranger,” and from 1993’s “Official Denial,” he was a mainstay of the made-for-television film industry throughout the ’90s.
The actor slowed down after accumulating a substantial money balance during his performing career. Both the 2003 T.V. movie “Terror Park” and the 2001 film “Trapped” were examples of his more recent work. The former Baywatch actor is continuously active in the industry, having recently acted in the T.V. movie “His Secret Family” (2015) and appearing in the movies “Legend of the Seeker” (2010) and “Longmire”(2014). The sum of these activities led to his wealth, but he now spends most of his time as the “Shadow Works” photographer, a vocation he has chosen for himself.
Parker Stevenson is a divorced father of two from his marriage to actress Kirstie Alley (1983–1997).
