The Return Movie
Stefanie Powers: humanitarian, conservationist, world traveller, adventurer, and of course actor. Whether she's studying the migrating caribou in Newfoundland or raising funds as President of the William Holden Wildlife Foundation, she has a great passion for her work. Most people know her as Jennifer Hart in the 80s series Hart to Hart but for U.N.C.L.E. fans, Powers is best remembered for bringing that certain spark to the role of April Dancer in the single-season run of The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. She's performed in theatre such as Love Letters, sung and danced in musicals, and has not only starred in, but written and produced many television movies. Stefanie is a gracious, hard working, remarkable woman.
Stefanie Powers was born Stefanie Zofia Federkiewicz on November 2, 1942 in Hollywood California. With her mother's encouragement, Stefanie got a part as a dancer in the movie West Side Story. After several weeks of rehearsal, she was fired because she was underage. But she had caught the attention of director Blake Edwards, who cast her in her first feature film Experiment in Terror with Lee Remick and Glenn Ford. Stefanie continued acting in feature films until she accepted the role of April Dancer. After The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., she starred in many television movies and appeared in the occasional feature film. After a five-year run as Jennifer in Hart to Hart, Stefanie concentrated on television and starred in popular miniseries such as Deceptions, Mistral's Daughter.
In her personal life, Stefanie is devoted to conservation and has concentrated her efforts in Kenya as the President (and founder) of the William Holden Wildlife Foundation.
