About Dee Wallace Stone (1948 – )
Deanna Bowers was born on December 14th, 1948 in Kansas City, Kansas. She was the daughter of Maxine and Robert Stanly Bowers. After graduating from Wyandotte High School, she graduated from the University of Kansas, with an education degree.
She taught high school for a short while, but discovered that it wasn't her calling, at that point in her life. Her teacher training came in handy though, later in her career, especially now when she is teaching people through her self-help books, public speaking and workshops/ individuals readings.
Dee was married three times. She uses the last names of two of her three spouses. She married Barry Wallace, but they divorced. She married the love of her life, actor Christopher Stone, on June, 1980. They had a daughter together; Gabrielle Stone. Christopher died of a heart attack in 1995. Three years later, Dee married producewr Skip Belyea in 1998, and they are still very happy together.
She began her performing career as a ballet soloist. Of her dance training, she remarked, "A dancer knows how to move naturally. Dancing allows me to do almost subliminal things as an actress that the audience might sense, but yet not be fully aware of."
Stone studied acting in New York under famous acting legend, Uta Hagen, a German American actress and drama teacher/coach.
Stone entered movies with a number of horror and sci-fi films. Stone was beleaguered by cannibals in THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1977), chased by werewolves in THE HOWLING (1981), and threatened by a St. Bernard run-amuck in CUJO (1983).
But, Dee also had the chance to play the nice mom in the classic E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982).
Dee Wallace Stone has been a guest star on many television series, including THE NEW LASSIE, L.A. LAW, TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, ALLIE MCBEAL, SONS AND DAUGHTERS, GREY'S ANATOMY, and SAVING GRACE.
Wallace Stone explained her success – "I'm the girl next door who learned how to make life work the hard way. I lived it. Victim to victory. When you find the joy, you have to share it."
