Dean Stockwell was born on March 5, 1936 in Hollywood, California, USA. He started acting as a child in 1945, specializing in the "sensitive child" roles. He then dropped out for a five year trip around the country, but returned. During the early 1960's, Stockwell dropped acting for a hippy lifestyle, and again he went back.
In the mid-1970's, he once again "retired" from acting to be a real-estate broker. He was away from the silver screen for about a decade, returning in the mid-1980's. Today, Stockwell is still acting and directing. Stockwell's most memorable role to modern audiences is that of Al in Quantum Leap and later as a Cylon named Brother Cavil in the Re-imaged Battlestar Galactica.
