The film world says goodbye to Stella Stevens. The American initially modeled before she was discovered as an actress and signed a contract with a film production company, 20th Century Studios. For example, she appeared in the 1963 comedy The Mad Professor and the 1972 disaster film Poseidon. Now there is sad news: Stella passed away.
This was confirmed to Deadline by her son Andrew Stevens and longtime friend John O’Brien. She died at the age of 84. The former model was known to suffer from Alzheimer’s and was most recently living in a nursing home. Andrew is her only son. Like his mother, he is also an actor. In addition to her son, Stevens is survived by three grandchildren.
Stella has also enjoyed great success in her career. In 1960, the “Raid in the Closet” actress was awarded a Golden Globe Award for Best Young Actress for the film “Angel on Hot Pavement”
