Wiki Biography: Trained professionally at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, a graduate of Dartmouth College, a Ph.D. in Dramatic Literature from Indiana University and during his teaching days, a tenured Associate Professor, Stephen Macht is one of the best-educated working actors in America today. He starred as "Proctor" in The Crucible, "Orsino" in 12th Night, and "Dunois" in Saint Joan at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Canada where he was scouted and signed by Universal Television to come to Hollywood to begin his film career. Since then he has played leading men in plays and dozens of television movies and feature films from "Yoni Netanyahu" in Raid On Entebbe to "Warwick" in Stephen King's Graveyard Shift, and from "Dan Lavetta" in The Immigrants to "David Keeler," Sharon Gless' love interest in Cagney And Lacey. He has recurred on Boston Public, Jack And Jill and Boomtown. Soap Opera Digest nominated Stephen "2007 Villain of The Year, for Trevor Lasing," on General Hospital a role he played through 2008. Opposite Charleton Heston, Stephen played "King Henry VIII" in A Man For All Seasons at the Ahmansohn Theatre and prosecutor "Challey" in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He was "Henry II" in Lion in Winter at the Cleveland Playhouse and most recently, "Lyman Felt" in Arthur Miller's Ride Down Mt. Morgan at the Will Geer Theatre in what Variety called "a juicy star turn, appropriate for a character defined as a recklessly sexual, splendidly hungry man." Stephen taught at Smith College, was a tenured professor at Queens College in New York and has directed theatre and television in Los Angeles. He is the father of the actor, Gabriel Macht, and together with his wife and three other children, as well as eight grandchildren and counting, his greatest hobby and future plans are to provide a lot of entertainment for years to come. Through the years, Macht has participated in and supported various charitable causes, serving as an Honorary Board Member of the Parkinsons Resource Organization and its Master of Ceremonies in for the past ten years. In 1981 and 1982 he was the original moderator of the Los Angeles Jewish Federation's JTV.
