Patrick Stewart is one of the most acclaimed performers working today. His
career includes numerous and varied roles on both stage and screen.
Stewart will next be seen on TV in the second season of Blunt Talk, a half-hour

plays 'Walter Blunt,' a British import intent on conquering the world of
American cable news. His performance in season one earned him a Golden Globe
Award nomination for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series -
Musical or Comedy." Season two will premiere on Starz later this year.
On the big screen, Stewart was most recently seen in the thriller Green Room,
directed by Jeremy Saulnier, in which he plays the leader of a Neo-Nazi group
that imprisons a young punk band. The film played the Director's Fortnight at
the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and premiered at the 2015 Toronto International
Film Festival to rave reviews. Stewart also recently wrapped production on
Damian Harris' Wilde Wedding, starring opposite Glenn Close and John Malkovich.
Stewart will return to the London stage in fall 2016, reuniting with Sir Ian
McKellen in Harold Pinter's "No Man's Land," which they've previously performed
at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in California and on Broadway in Fall 2013.
This was part of their "Two Plays in Rep," which also included a reprisal of

Film Festival and earned stellar reviews for Patrick's performance. He also
reprised his role as 'Professor Charles Xavier' in the huge summer blockbuster,
X-Men: Days of Future Past. Stewart created the role in the first installment of
the franchise in 2000 and is the only actor to have played the role in almost
all of the subsequent installments. This film joined the original cast,
including Sir Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry, with the new cast,
including James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.
Perhaps best known as 'Captain Jean-Luc Picard' on Star Trek: The Next
Generation, Stewart has enjoyed a successful film and television career, earning
Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG Award nominations. Screen appearances include King of
Texas, Jeffrey, Dune, Excalibur, L.A. Story, Robin Hood: Men in Tights,

heard on The Simpsons, American Dad and Family Guy, and as narrator of Seth
MacFarlane's hit comedies, Ted and Ted 2.

Theatre," "The Master Builder," "The Ride Down Mt. Morgan" and "The Tempest."
For his acclaimed solo production of "A Christmas Carol," Stewart played over 40
characters, garnering an Olivier, Drama Desk and What's on Stage Award. For his
performance in the title role of Macbeth, which he played at Chichester, London,
BAM and then on Broadway, he earned a Tony Award nomination and won the Best

David Tennant, which earned him an Olivier Award, and 2005 repertory productions
of Antony and Cleopatra and The Tempest. In 1978, he won an Olivier Award for
his performance in Peter Brook's production of Antony and Cleopatra and was
