Photo measures 10 x 8. Craig Stevens (July 8, 1918 – May 10, 2000) was an American motion picture and television actor. Born Gail Shikles, Jr., in Liberty, Missouri, his father was a high school teacher.

Stevens studied dentistry at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, from which he received a bachelor's degree in 1936. Acting with the university's drama club prompted him to halt his studies and instead to audition in the Hollywood film industry. Adopting the stage name Craig Stevens, he debuted in a small role in 1939 and thereafter played mainly secondary parts.

On June 18, 1944, at the Church of the Recessional, Forest Lawn, he married Canadian actress Alexis Smith, to whom he was wed for almost fifty years until her death in 1993. Stevens died from cancer at the age of eighty-one in Los Angeles, California. The Stevenses were childless.
