Stephen Weaver Collins (born October 1, 1947) is an American actor, writer, and musician. He is perhaps best known for playing the role of Eric Camden on the long-running television series 7th Heaven and more recently as Dr. Dayton King on the ABC TV series No Ordinary Family. Collins was born in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Madeleine (nee Robertson) and Cyrus S. Collins, an airline executive. Collins is the great-great-grandson of General James Baird Weaver, the 1880 Greenback Party presidential candidate and the 1892 Populist Party ('People's Party') candidate for president. Collins was raised with his two older brothers in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York and attended Amherst College, graduating cum laude.
