Biography

Stephen Young was on his way to a professional baseball career, but a severe knee injury ended those prospects and sent him down the path to acting instead. While he hadn't entertained the idea of becoming an actor, he happened to be in Europe at the same time the 1963 epic "Cleopatra" was filming and managed to snag a bit part, which led to small roles in other large-scale movies. Upon returning to his native Toronto, he began appearing on Canadian television programs, but by '66 he had relocated to Hollywood, where he landed the role of legal assistant Ben Caldwell in "Judd for the Defense". Despite favorable reviews, the show was canceled after two seasons, but new opportunities awaited Young as a reliable character actor in several well-regarded films released during the '70s. He played Captain Chester B. Hansen, assistant to General Omar Bradley in the Academy Award-winning "Patton", and Gilbert in "Soylent Green"--a character who might best be remembered for his confrontation with Soylent executive Simonson. Throughout the next decades, he made numerous guest appearances on television series, with the occasional film role thrown in. In 2007, he played the child psychiatrist Dr. Stan Weathers in the drama "Charlie Bartlett".
