Steven "Steve" Olson is a fictional character on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. Steve is the oldest child of Addie Horton and Ben Olson and is Julie Olson Williams's brother and Hope Brady’s half-brother. Steven went with his parents to Paris in 1965, and after his father died in 1971, Steven remained in Paris to finish his schooling, even though his mother Addie returned to Salem.
In 1972, Steven returned to Salem after finishing school, but, when he was unhappy in Salem, he returned to Paris. In 1978 Julie and Doug visited Paris where they met up with Steven, and brought him back to Salem. Julie gave Steven a job at Doug's Coffee House where he skimmed tips, and later when Julie opened up an antique store he sold Julie fake antiques.
By 1979, Steven had become involved in with a drug smuggler, Durand, who Trish Clayton had stolen some diamonds from. Steven was in charge of holding onto some canes that were filled with cocaine, and Durand also wanted the diamonds that Trish had stolen from him. However, when he found out that Maggie Horton had unknowingly sold some of them in Julie's shop, he feared for his life and fled Salem, never to be heard from again.
