Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A stage, TV, and film actor, Joel Fabiani appeared in supporting roles in some memorable films and TV series throughout the 1970s and in daytime soaps in his later career. After serving briefly in the Army, Fabiani studied English in college and moved on to the Actors Workshop in San Francisco, where he studied drama for two years. He then headed to Broadway, where he made his debut in a 1962 production of "The Affair." Throughout the decade he alternated between commercial work and screen and stage acting until he won the steady leading role of Stewart Sullivan on the British Interpol drama "Department S."

Though he did land the part of Charles Kirkland in Brian De Palma's Hitchcockian "Snake Eyes," the late 1990s saw him nestle nicely into the daytime soap...
