Actor Douglas Stevenson, who played Lee Sentell on SEARCH FOR TOMORROW, from 1979 to 1982 has died at age 56.
SEARCH fans will remember that Lee was the younger cousin of Travis, the popular her of the show during that time. Lee was married to Cissie Mitchell Sentell, played by Patsy Pease. There was a lot of baby drama around little Roger Lee at the time.
Stevenson appeared on the cover of Soap Opera Digest in September 1980 with co-star Marcia McCabe with the headline "Daytime's Sexy Southerner". Sunny fell in love with Lee but he eventually left town with Cissie.
SEARCH was his first major TV role after graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1976. He came to SEARCH around the same time as Kevin Bacon with an extensive theater background.
Steveson's film roles included Breaker! Breaker! and The Prowler. He also guest starred on primetime series such as MURDER, SHE WROTE and MONSTER SQUAD.
Stevonson was born on July 18, 1955 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was once married to THE ADDAMS FAMILY and AS THE WORLD TURNS star Lisa Loring.
