Parker Stevenson Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

Richard Stevenson Parker was born on the 4th of June 1952 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA to parents Richard Stevenson, an investment advisor and actress Sarah Meade. Known professionally as Parker Stevenson because of a clash of names with another actor, he started doing commercials at an early age, but got his big break by playing the handsome preppy boy role of Frank in the series “The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries”.

Being one of the most sought after actors back in the 80’s and 90’s, Stevenson has a reported net worth of $10 million as of early 2016. Back in 1997, after his divorce to actress Kirstie Alley, Stevenson reportedly gained $6 million worth of assets, a considerable divorce settlement at that time, especially for a man. Nowadays the actor’s means comes from his various acting and directing roles in movies and TV and most recently in his new endeavor as a photographer.

Growing up, Stevenson spent his childhood in Rye, New York and attended Brooks School near Boston. At the early age of 14, Stevenson started appearing in various commercials, thanks to his mother who sparked his love for acting. In college, the budding actor took architecture at Princeton University and started pursuing acting as well. In 1972 during his senior year, Stevenson landed his first movie “A Separate Peace” that established him as one of the actors to watch out for during that time. A couple of years after that Stevenson’s acting career took off, when in 1974 he played one of the leading roles in the television movie “Our Time”, and after that he appeared in the film “Lifeguard”. These were the start of his net worth.

However, the project that put Stevenson’s name on the Hollywood map was when he landed the role of Frank Hardy in “The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries” in 1977. After the show ended in 1979, Stevenson was offered to portray the same preppy teen in other projects, but finally broke out of that shell in 1981 when he landed the role of a rock star in the TV movie “This House Possessed”. All added steadily to his net worth.

Stevenson maintained his status and value by performing several roles on TV such as “The Love Boat” in 1983, “Falcon Crest” from 1984 to 1985, and “North and South: Book II” in 1986, in which he played a Civil War soldier. Stevenson was also one of the cast of the popular Television show “Baywatch” playing an attorney sidelining as a lifeguard. He also starred in made-for-TV movies during the 90s including “All the Rivers Run 2” in 1990, “Are You Lonesome Tonight” and “Shadow of a Stranger” in 1992, and in “Official Denial”.

After building up his net worth in the bank from the world of acting, the actor slowed down a bit and started working less. Some of his more recent work was the TV movie “Trapped”, and “Terror Park” in 2003. The former Baywatch star still occasionally acts, having starred in the movie “Legend of the Seeker” back in 2010, in the TV series “Longmire”(2014) and most recently in the 2015 TV movie “His Secret Family”. All contributed to his net worth, however these days he prefers to spend his time doing professional photography, being the man behind “Shadow Works”.

In his personal life, Parker Stevenson is divorced from actress Kirstie Alley, after 14 years of marriage(1983-97), and with whom he has a son and a daughter.
