Who is Parker Stevenson?

Richard Stevenson Parker Jr. was born on 4 June 1952, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, and is an actor, best known from his film and television work from the 1980s up to the 1990s, though he continues appearing in numerous acting projects, mainly on television.

The Net Worth of Parker Stevenson

How rich is Parker Stevenson? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $10 million, earned largely through a successful career in acting, though he has also forayed into directing work later in his career. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Parker grew up with an older brother in the Main Line of Philadelphia – his father was an investment advisor, and his mother was an actress, who often took him to filming sessions from when he was five years old, which led him to appear in two television projects at a young age. His older brother didn’t really like acting, and despite appearing in a few plays, did not want to pursue a career similar to that of their mother’s.

Thanks to her mother’s influence and connections, Parker became accustomed to the industry quickly, and in 1972 made his first appearance in the film “A Separate Peace”, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by John Knowles, in which he was credited as Parker Stevenson. He then matriculated from Brooks School, and enrolled into Princeton University studying architecture. After graduating, he moved to Hollywood to continue his acting career, and in 1976 appeared in the film “Lifeguard” opposite Sam Elliot, also starring Anne Archer and Kathleen Quinlan.

Acting Prominence

Stevenson would get one of his most notable roles starring as Shaun Cassidy in “The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries” series, and produced by Glen A. Larson. The show aired in the late 1970s, and is based on “Nancy Drew” as well as “Hardy Boys” highly popular novel series both by Edward Stratemeyer. The first season had different storylines for both of the characters before they eventually crossed over, but Nancy Drew was later dropped in favor of the Hardys.

In 1983, he co-starred in the film “Stroker Ace”, playing the role of the race-car driving nemesis Aubrey James opposite Burt Reynolds’ character; however, the film was unsuccessful both critically and financially. Three years later, he worked on the television miniseries “North and South: Book II”, co-starring alongside Kirstie Alley who portrayed his sister. In 1988, he starred in the television series “Probe” which was short-lived, then was one of the original cast members of “Baywatch” the following year, but left the show. later returning during the 1997 and ‘98 seasons.

Later Work

Parker’s roles got less attention in subsequent years – he had a recurring role during the second season of “Melrose Place”, and in 2000 tried his hand at voice acting in an episode of “Batman Beyond”, before appearing as a guest in an episode of “Judging Amy”. Other projects he had in the next few years included “The District”, and he then took a long break from acting before returning in an episode of “Legend of the Seeker” in 2010, and then in a guest role in the TV series “Longmire”. A few of his recent projects include “Bull”, and a recurring role in “Greenhouse Academy”, a television series released by Netflix. Later in his career, he focused more on photography, a passion he’s had since he was young. A lot of his work has been posted on a personal photography website called “shadowworks”.

Personal Life

For his personal life, it is known that Stevenson married actress and spokesmodel Kirstie Alley in 1983, and their marriage lasted until 1997, during which they had two children, and shared custody of both. Stevenson was not her first husband as she was married before to Bob Alley. Kirstie is known for finding popularity in the film “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” before eventually earning more acclaim for her performances in various television series. She also starred in several films including “David’s Mother”, for which she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.
