Who is Patrick Stewart?

undefined - Patrick StewartPatrick Stewart

Patrick Stewart is a prolific actor who has made a name for himself through his work on the stage, sitcoms and the Broadway. Though he proved his might as an actor in television serials and films, he always harboured a great deal of passion towards the Shakespearean theater, where he spent most of his career. He was relentless in achieving his success as an actor and the mockery he faced from the people for being bald did not discourage him in his pursuit. His role as ‘Captain Jean-Luc Picard’ in ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ lasted for seven seasons. His later role as ‘Professor Charles Xavier’ in the ‘X-Men’ took his career to great heights. He is a versatile actor who has played many roles and has won the Emmy Award apart from winning many other awards. He is the recipient of the ‘Officer of the Order of the British Empire’, the highest honor received by an actor from Queen Elizabeth II. He is the patron of ‘Refuge’ a UK based charitable organization for abused women. Stewart’s lucid and commanding voice earned him popularity even in the field of voice acting, especially as the voice of ‘Emperor Uriel Septim VII’ in ‘The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’, a video game.
