Connie Stevens (born Concetta Rosalie Ann Ingoglia; August 8, 1938) is an American actress, director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer, editor and singer, best known for her role in the television series Hawaiian Eye.

Early life

She was born Concetta Rosalie Ann Ingoglia in Brooklyn, New York, the daughter of Peter Ingoglia (known as musician Teddy Stevens) and singer Eleanor McGinley. [1]

She adopted her father's stage name of Stevens as her own. Her parents were divorced and she lived with her grandparents and attended Catholic boarding schools. [1] Actor John Megna (1952–1995) was her half-brother. At the age of 12, she witnessed a murder in Brooklyn and was sent to live in Boonville, Missouri, with family friends. [2]

Coming from a musical family, she joined the singing group called The Fourmost, [3] with Tony Butala, who went on to fame as founder of The Lettermen. Stevens moved to Los Angeles with her father in 1953. When she was 16, she replaced the alto in a singing group, The Three Debs. [3] She enrolled at a professional school (The Georgia Massey Professional School in the San Fernando Valley), sang professionally and appeared in local repertory theater.
