Biography

A British stage actress who migrated to the USA to play the bitchy Sable Coolly on "Dynasty II: The Cloys" (ABC, 1985-87), Stephanie Beacham has often been cast in roles that vary between nasty vixens and cool, take-charge women. The London native began her career on stage in Liverpool in 1964 where she was a founding member of the Everyman Theatre. She debuted there in "The Servant of Two Masters" and as the First Witch in "Macbeth". By 1970, Beacham was working on the London stage in "The Basement" and later appeared opposite Ian McKellen in "Venice Preserved" (1985) and Jeremy Irons in "The Rover" (1988). She belatedly made her Broadway debut in 1996 in a production of Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband".
