Jeffrey Stone
Birth: Dec. 16, 1926
Wayne County
Michigan, USA
Death: Aug. 22, 2012
Pulau Pinang, Malaysia

Actor. Born John Forrest Fontaine, his father died while he was a child, he spent a great deal of his youth in an Indiana orphanage until lying about his age (seventeen) in order to join the United States Navy, whom he served with during World War II. After deciding to pursue a career in entertainment, he changed his name to Jeffrey Stone (so his real last name would not be confused with actress Joan Fontaine) and began an association with the Disney Company. Stone's physique was the inspiration for the character Prince Charming in the story "Cinderella" (1950). He starred as D'Artagnan in the TV series "The Three Musketeers" (1956) and repeated the role for the film "The King's Musketeers" (1957). Stone went onto a wider range of parts in the Will Cowan pictures "The Big Beat" (1958) and the classic cult horror film "The Thing that Couldn't Die" (1958). Additionally, he accrued credits with episodes of the TV series "Richard Diamond, Private Detective", "Outer Limits" among others and had starring roles in several Mexican and Italian features. He penned and directed the film "Strange Portrait" (1964) which starred Jeffrey Hunter. He retired from the industry during the mid 1960s and spent many years traveling around the world, prior to settling in Malaysia. He turned to writing and yielded "Letters to Rainbow: A Romantic Adventure Novel" (2004) and his autobiography "Whatever Happened to Prince Charming?" (2010). He was formerly married to actresses Barbara Lawrence and Corinne Calvet. (bio by: C.S.)
