    Joan Benedict Steiger

    in Entertainment

    The Best Ever You Show is extremely honored to welcome Joan Benedict Steiger as our guest. 
    Decades of work on stage, screen, and television and the love of three devoted men sounds like a full life; but in many ways, the story is just beginning for veteran performer Joan Benedict Steiger.  With credits dating back to the original “Candid Camera” on television to her acclaimed solo performance as Leona Helmsley, she has lived the artistic life she first dreamed of as a child in Brooklyn, New York – and the dream shows no signs of ending.
    Throughout her life, Joan Benedict Steiger has worked simultaneously on stage, in film, and on television.  She’s still remembered for a classic bit from the original version of “Candid Camera,” where she played a lost tourist looking for directions from passersby, making sure that her fancy hat – beplumed with a particularly large feather – would distract them at every opportunity.  She was also part of the ensemble of the original “Steve Allen Show,” where she did double duty as the spokesperson for Hazel Bishop cosmetics.  On daytime drama, she had regular and recurring roles on “General Hospital,” “Days of our Lives,” and “Capitol.”  Her dozens of series guest appearances include classic series like “Fantasy Island,” “T.J. Hooker,” “The Incredible Hulk” and, most recently, Fox’s “Dollhouse. For more information visit www.joanbenedictsteiger.com

    Joan Benedict Steiger Talks About Her Book and Rod Steiger

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Joan Benedict Steiger.


     Even after a prolific career spanning stage, screen, and television – and inspiring romances with three devoted men – the veteran actress still finds each role a new challenge to experience and new terrain to explore.


    A dancer from childhood, Joan forged a career in show business as an actress in the early days of television, where she made notable appearances on shows like the original “Candid Camera” and “The Steve Allen Show.”  Dozens of television and film appearances later, including memorable stints on “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives,” she’s still dedicated to all facets of her craft, having appeared in numerous stage productions, from the classics to modern comedies to her acclaimed solo shows (“Leona,” about Leona Helmsley, and her autobiographical “The Loves of My Life.”) 


    Off-screen, Joan’s life has been equally charmed.  Her first husband was stage veteran John Myhers, with whom Joan spent thirty years before his passing.  Then, Joan was reunited with Academy Award-winning actor Rod Steiger; the two had known each other when Joan was a star-struck ingénue and Steiger the industry’s hottest young performer.  Now, decades later, their romance was rekindled, and the couple married, working together and supporting each other until the actor’s death in 2002.  Then Joan fell in love with veteran television actor Jeremy Slate, and the two spent several years together before his death.  “They all passed away from different forms of cancer, so it’s bittersweet,” says a pensive Joan today.  “But they were three of the greatest guys in the world.”

    “I’m still learning after all these years,” says Joan Benedict Steiger. Even after a prolific career spanning stage, screen, and television – and inspiring romances with three devoted men – the veteran actress still finds each role a new challenge to experience and new terrain to explore.

    Off-screen, Joan’s life has been equally charmed. Her first husband was stage veteran John Myhers, with whom Joan spent thirty years before his passing. Then, Joan was reunited with Academy Award-winning actor Rod Steiger; the two had known each other when Joan was a star-struck ingénue and Steiger the industry’s hottest young performer. Now, decades later, their romance was rekindled, and the Steigers spent nearly a decade working together and supporting each other until the actor’s death in 2002. Then Joan fell in love with veteran television actor Jeremy Slate, and the two spent several years together before his death. “They all passed away from different forms of cancer, so it’s bittersweet,” says a pensive Joan today. “But they were three of the greatest guys in the world.”
    Today, Joan immerses herself in every acting opportunity, including a recent appearance on Fox’s “Dollhouse,” and is preparing to write her memoirs. Remembering the past with no regrets, she looks forward to a future of even more accomplishment.
