Stefanie Powers began her career with bit parts in films in the early 1960s, but she would gain her greatest fame from her television career. Her big break came in 1966 when she was cast as April Dancer on NBC's spy series "The Girl From U.N.C.L.E."
Powers' interest in bullfighting was written into the show. She began bullfighting at age 20 and became an honorary member of the Mexican Bullfighters Union.
In 1970, she met Robert Wagner in "It Takes a Thief," and nine years later, she costarred with him in "Hart to Hart," as Jennifer Hart, perhaps her most famous role. In the 1970s Powers also had roles in programs like "The Rockford Files" and "The Six Million Dollar Man."
Her last feature film was the 1979 flick "Escape to Athena," in which she played a stripper.
"Hart to Hart" lasted five seasons from 1979 to 1984. In the 1990s, Powers and Wagner reprised their roles for eight made-for-TV movies.
Powers has been divorced twice, from actor Gary Lockwood and Patrick Houitte de la Chesnais, and has no children. Currently, she is the president of the William Holden Wildlife Foundation, named for her former boyfriend who died in 1981. Powers continues to work in stage productions and will release a memoir in fall 2010, "One From the Hart."
