The youngest of seven children, Stephen Gregory was raised in New York. He attended NYU and studied with several noted acting teachers such as Stella Adler, Roy London and Ivana Chubbuck. After acting in numerous television commercials, Stephen appeared on “As the World Turns” (1956)_ as Marisa Tomei’s love interest. Then, after the release of the film The Heavenly Kid (1985), he moved to Los Angeles, where he guest-starred on such shows as St. Elsewhere (1982), Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), Houston Knights (1987) and NBC’s You Can’t Take It with You (1987). After a three-year contract on The Young and the Restless (1973), Stephen left acting and began a media consulting business in Los Angeles. A producer on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) remembered him, however, and was able to lure him before the cameras once again. He has a recurring role as Dr. Beresford on “Law and Order: SVU” and splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
