is an English actor whose career has included roles on stage, television, and film in a career spanning almost six decades.
He is a multiple time Olivier, Golden Globe, Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and Saturn Award nominee.
He commented that he would never have joined The Next Generation had he known that it would air for seven years: "No, no. And looking back now it still frightens me a little bit to think that so much of my life was totally devoted to Star Trek and almost nothing else." Stewart has played the role in seven feature films (X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Logan) and voiced the role in several video games (X-Men Legends, X-Men Legends II, and X-Men: Next Dimension).
Stewart announced that he is leaving the X-Men film franchise after Logan, which will thus be the final time he plays the role.
Beginning his career with a long run with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Stewart received the 1979 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Antony and Cleopatra on the West End.
Stewart's first major screen roles were in BBC-broadcast television and film during the mid-late 1970s, including Hedda, and the I, Claudius miniseries.
The film pays a great deal of attention to Shatner's interviews with Stewart at his home in Oxfordshire, as well as at a Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada; Stewart reveals the fear and personal failings that came along with his tenure as a Starfleet captain, and also the great triumphs he believes accompanied his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Stewart also appeared as a nudity-obsessed caricature of himself in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's television series Extras.
[I] had expected that I would be standing in front of a few hundred people and found that there were two and a half thousand people and that they already knew more about me than I could ever possibly have believed.
From 1994 to 2002, he also portrayed Picard in the films Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002); and in Star Trek: Deep Space Nines pilot episode "Emissary", and received a 1995 Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series".
In 2011, Stewart appeared in the feature-length documentary The Captains alongside William Shatner (who played Star Trek Captain James Kirk) – Shatner also wrote and directed the film.
In the film, Shatner interviews actors who have portrayed captains within the Star Trek franchise.
