Best known for playing Dee Dee McCall, partner of the title character in the TV cop drama "Hunter," Stepfanie Kramer broke into television in 1977 with a one-off on another popular cop drama, "Starsky and Hutch." At this time, she was still a student. But within a few years of graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (AADA), she was earning bigger and better roles on television. In 1983, she'd been made a cast member on the buddy sitcom "We Got It Made." She played John Hillner's girlfriend on the show's first season, but left the series when she was cast on "Hunter." This proved a wise move, as "We Got it Made" was cancelled during its second season. "Hunter," on the other hand, proved popular, and Kramer played the tenacious McCall for six of the show's seven seasons, walking away in 1990 to pursue a music career. While she has gone on to create albums and perform across the country, Kramer is best regarded for her performance on "Hunter," its subsequent TV movie sequels, and its short-lived 2003 re-launch. Her work on the series--and her Native American background--have garnered Kramer two First Americans in the Arts Awards; she won her third FAITA Award for her lead turn in the sexual harassment-centered TV movie "Deceived by Trust: A Moment of Truth Movie." She has gone on to balance work in television and music with a teaching position at her alma mater, AADA.
