Ellenieanna RIP Dean Stockwell, Hollywood child Star, Oscar nominee for Married to the Mob, guest appearances in the classic TV show Columbo & of course for us Sci-Fi fantasy fans his role in the wonderful Quantum Leap. Thank you for the joy.
Mr Howard I think Dean Stockwell was probably the first actor I ever loved, he was just so goddamned suave on Quantum Leap. Then you get older and see him pop up all over and realize he was actually one of the greatest character actors of all time. What a legacy! RIP
