Sketch: Stefanie Powers

Stefanie Powers is widely known as Jennifer Hart, her role opposite Robert Wagner as half of a married couple of amateur sleuths in the 1979-84 series Hart to Hart. She received two Emmy and five Golden Globe Award nominations.

She overcame lung cancer and went on to star in an American production of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s Sunset Boulevard, Stefanie has also appeared on the London stage on numerous occasions. Her latest was part of an all-star cast of Follies.

The iconic show was revived for two performances only at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the 85th birthday of legendary composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim.

“I don’t have one, but if I had a bucket list, being on stage in the Royal Albert Hall would certainly be among the top ten choices,” she said.

I left this sketch, which depicts Stefanie rehearsing for Follies and an earlier portrait, at the Royal Albert Hall and she signed, dedicated and returned it for me.

  1. I love H2H and I love her! She’s amazing. I’m so glad to know she signed your sketch..I just knew she was that nice in real life! I haven’t seen her anywhere for a long long time. She looks so different in your drawings so I had a quick look online and found some photos from her at RAH…..happy to say you are, again, spot on with your capture!
