She was born Stefanie Federkiewicz in Hollywood, California. She graduated from Hollywood High School, and made her film debut in a small role in “Tammy Tell Me True” (1961). She co-starred with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara in “McClintock!” in 1963, and her distinctive look got her a role as April Dancer in a spin-off of the TV show “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” aptly entitled “The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.” In the 1970s, she starred in two Walt Disney live action pictures, “The Boatniks” (1970) and “Herbie Rides Again” (1974), before landing “Hart to Hart” in 1979. This became her defining moment, and she would do eight more TV “Hart” movies through 1996.

Stefanie Powers appeared at “The Hollywood Show,” an exciting gathering of celebrities and memorabilia for movies, TV and pop culture fans. The next edition in Chicago will be March 16th-18th, 2018 (details below).

“The Hollywood Show” comes to Chicago next spring on March 16th through the 18th, 2018. For details, click here. For Stefanie Power’s website, click here.

  • Speech & Debate (stage play)

    CHICAGO – “Speech & Debate,” the latest production from the mighty Brown Paper Box Company, continues their tradition of thinking outside that “box” in presenting storefront theater that makes a statement and a difference. “Speech” goes inside America by showcasing the outsiders… those who create art because they can’t get it right in real life. This non-equity Chicago stage play premiere is finely tuned and wonderfully acted, and runs through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • We're Gonna Be Okay

    CHICAGO – The 1960s were a time of historical social transition. The movements – civil rights, feminist, gay rights – all had roots in that tumultuous decade. The Chicago premiere of Basil Kreimendahl’s “We’re Gonna Be Okay” echoes all of those movements in its characters, and collides them against the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the American Theater Company through March 4th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
