||played Remington Steele in Remington Steele
Remington Steele is a fictional character created by Laura Holt. Holt created the character of Steele so as to have a male boss that could comfort prospective clients that the private detective in charge is actually a man, and not a woman. Holt created a deep background for Steele, going so far as to set up accommodations for him and outfits for him to wear. All was going well until a mysterious stranger turned up and assumed the mantle of Remington Steele. He did it in such a way as to make it be more trouble for Holt to remove him, than to keep him as a figurehead. The man who assumed the Remington Steele name is quite charming, but very mysterious. Even his name is a mystery (some passports were found once that contained names that Humphrey Bogart had used in movies).
