Stephen Nichols

Stephen Nichols is one of the most enduring stars of daytime TV, where he recently returned to the role of Steve "Patch" Johnson on Days of Our Lives.*

His original portrayal (1985-1990) earned him status as one of the most notable presences on TV, second only to Bill Cosby in the TV-Q ratings, along with an Emmy nod for Outstanding Actor in a Leading Role and five Soap Opera Digest Best Actor Awards.

Steve and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) remain one of the most popular couples, and the most-covered, on Days of Our Lives in the show's 42-year history.

Stephen also portrayed Stefan Cassadine on General Hospital (1996-2002, 2003). This role reunited him with Evans, while he was later paired with Genie Francis when his character was given a relationship with Laura.

Other TV appearances have included Matlock, L.A. Law, Diagnosis Murder, The Nanny (with former Days of Our Lives co-star Charles Shaughnessy), Second Chances, Sisters, a recurring role on Empty Nest, and playing Jesse James opposite Pierce Brosnan in Around the World in 80 Days.

* In December 2009, he was cast as Tucker McCall on The Young and the Restless.
