However, the father of Parker Stevenson, an investment advisor, looked doubtfully at the whole entertainment business, and although Parker Stevenson appeared in a few play productions at Brooks School he had no intention of becoming an actor. Parker Stevenson graduated from Brooks Prep school in Massachusetts and then studied architecture at Princeton. Although Richard Parker was his real name, he couldn't use it because another actor already had that name registered with the Screen Actors Guild. When he suggested Richard Stevenson, there was an actor with that name also, so Parker, as he's now known in the business, settled on Parker Stevenson, the name which he now prefers. Parker Stevenson became a huge teen idol when he starred in the hit television series The Hardy Boys alongside teen heart-throb Shaun Cassidy. Parker Stevenson also has a hugely successful television career in hit shows such as "Baywatch" and "Falcon Crest". Parker Stevenson is divorced from actress Kirstie Alley ("Cheers") and has two children.
