Biography

This winsome, dark-haired actress has made a pleasant impression on TV since the mid-1980s, playing somewhat nervous and charmingly ditzy or overly optimistic characters. Stevenson began her career as a member of the cast of the short-lived syndicated series "Off the Wall" (1986) and in 1989 made two memorable appearances on "Cheers" as Norm's secretary Nancy. She had a potential big break as the star of the syndicated, six-day-a-week spoof "My Talk Show" (1990), in which she entertained less than stellar celebrities in her Midwestern living room. The show, however, failed to find an audience and was canceled after just three months.
