Biography

Though he showed a great deal of promise during the early stages, actor Stephen Dorff suffered through a string of bad thrillers and horror flicks that threatened to derail his career. After emerging in the surprise hit "The Gate" (1987), Dorff made a good living starring in several made-for-television movies and guest-starring on popular series. But he first achieved critical prominence with a solid performance in the apartheid drama, "The Power of One" (1992). He continued to gain attention and critical praise throughout the decade, most notably in "Backbeat" (1994), "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996) and "Blade" (1998); the latter of which earned him a considerable fan base for his portrayal of the hated arch vampire, Deacon Frost. But by the next century, Dorff's stature as an actor fell dramatically, thanks to starring roles in derided pictures like "Deuces Wild" (2002), "Feardotcom" (2002) and "Alone in the Dark" (2005). By this time more noted for his dalliances with various models and actress, including his brief spin with Pamela Anderson, Dorff set about revitalizing himself, taking roles in more serious fare like "World Trade Center" (2006) and "Public Enemies" (2009) - all with the hopes of reigniting his career.
