  • Born in California in 1936, Joel Fabiani went through a multitude of schools and jobs, in addition to a stint in the army, before returning to college, where he first started acting. Based in San Francisco, he trained at the Actors' Workshop and later moved to New York, where he began working in commercials. His first major acting credit was in the feature-length pilot episode for the television series Ironside. He later appeared on such prime time network shows as N.Y.P.D. and Marcus Welby, M.D., in addition to daytime dramas, including Dark Shadows and The Doctors. Fabiani's major bid for TV stardom came when he was spotted by producers of the British series Department S, who were putting together the cast and needed a muscular American to play Stewart Sullivan, the team's man of action. The series was sold around the world and ran in the U.S. (among other countries) for its 28-show 1969-1970 season. Fabiani returned to America after the series was over and did extensive television work -- including appearances on Columbo, The Cosby Show, and Murder, She Wrote -- and occasional film work, with roles in Looking for Mr. Goodbar and Reuben, Reuben. He also had a long run on the soap opera All My Children beginning in 1999.
