From Bangor, Maine, to the college campuses of North Carolina to the hills of Hollywood to the mean streets of Salt Lake City, Utah, such are the landmarks on the far-flung path taken by sparkling pale blonde Stephanie Niznik in her pursuit of dramatic stardom. Fine-featured, cerebral, light as a gossamer pastry, Stephanie came to life in Bangor and earned a Masters in Fine Arts from North Carolina's Duke University. She promptly put the diploma to use in stage productions of Crimes of the Heart and Dial M for Murder. Matinees led to sound stages with guest spots on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1997); JAG (1997); and a plethora of others, which eventually won the upwardly mobile career girl the coveted next-door-neighbor role on the surprise-hit series Everwood (2002), filmed in Salt Lake City. At home in Hollywood, the formerly nasty Niznik must reflect that all the males in Utah will be ever wood if they ever happen upon her full-frontal exposure in Exit to Eden (1994). Sadly, that one glimpse of Stephanie's naked bod was all we ever got. She showed off her curves in a cleavage-bearing swimsuit in the family adventure flick Life Is Wild (2007), but that's the only other time that Stephanie showed some skin. Some of her later credits included works such as Grey's Anatomy (2007), CSI: Miami (2008), NCIS (2009), Lost (2009), and The Twenty (2009). Sadly, Stephanie passed away in 2019 at the age of 52. Stephanie and her skintastic scenes will be missed.
