(m. 1980; div. 1981)
Brinke Stevens (born Charlene Elizabeth Brinkman; September 20, 1954) is an American actress, model and writer.
Stevens has studied several foreign languages, including Esperanto, and gained a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Psychology from San Diego State University and a Master of Science in Marine Biology from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, California. Initially intending to study dolphin communication, she was instead tossed out of Scripps for doing "forbidden research" on dolphin communication, largely to do with the Navy's use of dolphins in undersea weapons research at the time.
In 1974, Stevens attended San Diego Comic Con and won first place in the first Masquerade Ball. She was part of running the masquerade at Comic Con for years after her win. Photographer Dan Golden saw a photograph of Stevens in the costume and then hired her for a non-speaking role in the student film Zyzak Is King (1980), and later photographed her for the cover of the first issue of Femme Fatales (1992).
In 1980, Stevens married her college sweetheart Dave Stevens. They moved to Los Angeles where he worked as a storyboard artist on Raiders of the Lost Ark. The marriage ended in divorce after six months.
While going to a modeling assignment, Stevens was discovered by a producer who cast her in a film as an extra. While leaving a modeling agency, she stopped by an office door to look at film posters on the walls. The occupant, Jacob Bressler, told her to enter and asked for her portfolio. On the basis of that, he cast her in an uncredited, non-speaking role in ...All the Marbles (1981). Stevens' first speaking role was as Linda in The Slumber Party Massacre (1982).
In addition to acting, Stevens has co-written a number of screenplays, co-produced two documentaries, and served as an onset decorator.
Stevens portrayed Julie Quinn, mother of serial killer Wayne Montgomery, in the 2007 horror film Head Case. She reprised her role in the three sequels, 2009's The Ritual, 2010's Post-Mortem, and 2013's Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley.
Brinke Stevens is depicted in the horror novel Bad Moon Rising, the third installment of Jonathan Maberry's "Pine Deep" trilogy, alongside Jim O'Rear, Tom Savini, and Debbie Rochon, published in 2008.
