Stephen began his Hollywood journey at Elstree Studios, London, U.K. where, as a precocious five-year-old, he was visiting the set of the classic British TV series called "The Saint" (starring Roger Moore) accompanied by his Father, Norman I. Hudis, who had written the episode. Upon the much-anticipated introduction, Stephen promptly called Mr. Moore "Sweaty Face" (he had just completed a fight scene) to which the future James Bond responded graciously, of course...Stephen didn't know it at the time, but in that moment, his future and fate were inexorably sealed - he was hooked.A few years later, Stephen came to America with his family including Mother, Rita (an R.N. who spent five years as a technical advisor/set medic on M*A*S*H), brother Kevin (barely a year old at the time) and his father who was brought to the U.S.A. (and Hollywood) by M.G.M. (now Sony Studios) to work on "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." and other noteworthy Television shows of the 1960s and 1970s.At age twelve, Stephen landed his first role - a voice-over - on the last film of Hollywood legend George Cukor ("Justine") which was soon followed up by guest-star/lead roles on many popular TV shows of the era (including "The Psychiatrist", directed by Steven Spielberg & starring Roy Thinnes), numerous commercials and a lead role in the Warner Brothers Studios feature-film "The Cowboys" (1972) starring John Wayne, Roscoe Lee Browne, Bruce Dern & Colleen Dewhurst and directed by Mark Rydell.In 1973 he was picked out of hundreds of hopefuls from all over the world to star as the title character in the ITV/Derrick Sherwin (U.K.) production of "Ski-Boy", which shot 13 episodes in about as many weeks in St. Luc, Switzerland.After a brief stint at Loyola Marymount University Film School in Westchester, California, he dropped out and went to work as a Production Assistant, working his way up through the ranks (and through practically every department on a film unit) and now his work can be seen in numerous car commercials, television shows & feature films as a stunt performer, stunt driver, stunt coordinator & second-unit director.In January, 2000 he set a World Record by jumping a 10-ton school bus 108 feet over fifteen motorcycles...While the bus was on fire.He is now set to make his directorial debut with "The Summoning", which he co-wrote with his wife, Lindy S. Hudis, a published novelist and film-maker.He proudly holds dual citizenship (UK/USA), two passports and a perfect safety record. He & Lindy have two children.
