An actor who started on the stage, performing in "Twelfth Night" and "Troilus and Cressida" as part of the Old Globe National Shakespeare Festival in San Diego, Doug Sheehan is best known for his work on television. He began his small screen career on ABC's popular daytime drama "General Hospital" as Joe Kelly. Handsome and dynamic, with dark, wavy-hair, this actor was very popular with viewers and won two SOAP OPERA DIGEST Readers' Poll Awards during his three-year (1979-82) stint as the likable lawyer. He followed this successful run with another long engagement, this time on CBS' "Knots Landing." From 1983 to 1987, Sheehan starred on the long-running primetime drama as Ben Gibson, a schemer with a secret past determined to make good, who married the troubled Valene (Joan Van Ark) and was briefly involved with singer Cathy (Lisa Hartman). The year after Ben Gibson made his dramatic "Knots Landing" disappearance, the actor could be seen on a new NBC series "Day by Day" (1988-1989) playing Brian Harper, a stockbroker who along with his lawyer wife Kate (Linda Kelsey) leave their professions and open a day care center in their home upon the arrival of their second child. He followed this up with a regular role on the UPN sitcom "Clueless" from 1997-99, playing high-powered attorney Mel, Cher's father and one of her many pet projects.
