Biography

Actor and occasional singer Stephen Collins essayed numerous clean-cut, well-intentioned men with an adventurous or romantic side in countless television movies and features from the mid-1970s through the 21st century. Adept at both drama and breezy comedy, he was a natural go-to for the lead in numerous regular series, but had trouble finding one that took with audiences until he starred in "7th Heaven" (The WB/The CW, 1996-2007), a family-values drama which cast him as a savvy Protestant minister and head of a large brood that deals with complex life issues. The show's popularity gave his career a solid boost, leading to more supporting roles in features like "Blood Diamond" (2006) and "Because I Said So" (2007), making Collins a versatile actor able to carry himself on screens both big and small. Collins' career was derailed, however, after allegations of sexual molestation of minors became public in October 2014.
