Stephen Young (born May 19, 1939) is a Canadian actor.

Young was born Stephen Levy in Toronto, Canada to a financier father. Directly following high school, the naturally-gifted teen athlete signed on for a career with the Cleveland Indians, but his professional bid ended when he seriously injured his knee playing ice hockey. He spent the next few years as a salesman, then wound up in radio and TV commercial production.

While traveling with a friend on a European excursion in the early 60s, he was given by chance a bit part in the monumental film Cleopatra (film) (1963), then landed similar minor assignments in such other European-filmed epics as 55 Days at Peking (1963), Gattopardo, Il (1963) The Leopard and The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964). Upon returning to Toronto, Young decided to become a full-time actor, originally billing himself under his given name of Stephen Levy and appearing in leads on both daytime and primetime TV dramas. He headed the cast of one adventure series "Seaway" (1965) in which he played Nick King, part of a special police force that protected the St. Lawrence Seaway.
