Actor Warren Stevens Dies at 92
Stage and screen actor Warren Stevens has passed away, according to published reports.
Born in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, Stevens began his acting career after serving in the U.S. Army Air Force as a pilot during World War II. He trained at The Actor's Studio in New York and made his Broadway debut in 1947's THE LIFE OF GALILEO followed by Six O'Clock Theatre, SUNDOWN BEACH, THE SMILE OF THE WORLD and DETECTIVE STORY, all between 1948 and 1950.
He then transitioned to movies, from Phone Call from a Stranger (1952), Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie (1952), and Gorilla at Large (1954) to the film for which he is perhaps best known, Forbidden Planet (1956). He also had a supporting role in The Barefoot Contessa (1954) with Humphrey Bogart.
Stevens also worked steadily in television, appearing in Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Hawaiian Eye, Bonanza and many more.
The New York Times reports that Stevens is survived by his wife of 43 years, Barbara Fletcher, and their two sons, Adam and Mathew; and a son, Laurence, from a previous marriage to Susan Huntington.
