Stephen Dorff (born July 29, 1973) is an American actor.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, USA to a Jewish father (composer Steve Dorff) and a Christian mother, Dorff was raised in Los Angeles, where his father worked as a film composer. Stephen started acting in television, guest roles. He appeared in shows such as Diff'rent Strokes, Roseanne, Married With Children, Blossom and some television movies like In Love and War, I Know My First Name Is Steven, A Son's Promise, Do You Know The Muffin Man? and What A Dummy.
Today, he is most famous for his part as evil Deacon Frost in the vampire movie Blade (1998). (Even though, he has worked as an actor for over 12 years.) Blade was the third most successful movie in 1998. For research on the movie Blade, Dorff went to goth, vampires clubs. He stated that he didn't like it. Fans of horror movies may remember him from The Gate (1987) (his first major film.) Dorff also played the role of drag queen Candy Darling in I Shot Andy Warhol (1996), a film about Valerie Solanas, the woman infamous for shooting pop-art icon Andy Warhol. He had to shave his legs and wax his eyebrows to play the part. In 1996 he starred in the movie Space Trucker, which was considered to be the worst movie ever. It is said that he is most proud of the movie Backbeat (1994) "and not so proud of" Judgment Night (1993). He was also one of the first actors to make a digitally downloadable movie, Quantum Project.
Dorff appeared in over 35 music videos. He starred in Rollin' by Limp Bizkit and just recently starred in the video to Britney Spears' 2004 single Everytime.
In his younger days, Dorff has been linked to have dated Drew Barrymore, in third grade, to his first serious girlfriend, Courtney Wagner. The daughter of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood. They were known to be madly in love at age of 18. He has also been romantically linked with R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, though this claim has been disputed. Nevertheless both have remained rather ambiguous with what type of relationship they have had. He later briefly dated Clueless star, Alicia Silverstone. They both appeared in the music video "Cryin'" by Aerosmith. He has also dated Milla Jovovich, who starred opposite Bruce Willis in Fifth Element; as well as model Rhea Durham for about 2 years (who has a child with Mark Wahlberg), a woman named Eugenie (with him during the release of his movie Riders in France); model May Anderson (July 2003 to April/May 2004); and model Shannan Click (Aug. 2004 to Nov. 2004). Most recently, he has dated Pamela Anderson for five months (Dec 2004 to end/beginning of Apr/May 2005).… Expand
