Stephen Geoffreys made a strong and distinct impression with his winning blend of wild energy and manic intensity that he brought to a handful of hugely enjoyable comedies and horror films made throughout the 1980s. He was born Stephen Geoffrey Miller on November 22, 1964, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Geoffreys first began acting at a performing arts high school in Cincinnati and attended acting classes at New York University. Geoffreys gave an excellent and inspired performance as obnoxious horror movie geek “Evil” Ed Thompson in the terrific Fright Night (1985).
Stephen displayed a real flair for comedy with his amusing turns as the antsy Williams in Heaven Help Us (1985) and the nerdy Wendell in Fraternity Vacation (1985). Other memorable roles include persecuted wimp Hoax in 976-EVIL (1988), hardened inmate Roach in the dreary haunted prison dud The Chair (1988), and slimy drug dealer Cookie in Moon 44 (1990).
Geoffreys did guest appearances on the TV anthology shows Amazing Stories (1985) and The Twilight Zone (1985).
Stephen has also had a very respectable stage career: he’s acted in the Off-Broadway productions The Human Comedy (Geoffreys was nominated for a Broadway Tony Award for Best Actor for the subsequent Broadway production of this play), Maggie/Magalita, and Songs on the Shipwrecked Sofa.
Outside of acting, Geoffreys writes short stories and is an avid bodybuilder. After a regrettably lengthy absence from the big screen, Stephen Geoffreys made a welcome comeback with a co-starring role in the indie fright feature Sick Girl (2007).
