Jeffrey Stewart

Born: Friday 28th October 1955 (age: 65)


Jeffrey Stewart  is a Scottish actor, probably best known as PC Reg Hollis in the ITV drama The Bill, a role he played from 1984 to 2008.

In 2009, Stewart shot a film in Chester, New York portraying a German-Russian in a Soviet prison in Under Jakob's Ladder alongside Australian actor Christopher Elliott, and produced by Roberto Munoz. He won best actor at the 2011 Manhattan Film Festival for the role.[3] He also voiced Mr. Tickle in The Mr. Men Show.

Stewart has played numerous roles in other television series, including Harry Fellows in Crossroads in 1981 (his first television appearance) and Dukkha in the Doctor Who story Kinda in 1982. He played a police constable in Hi-De-Hi! in 1983, the same year "Woodentop" (the pilot episode of "The Bill"), aired.

Reg Hollis is mentioned but not seen in "Woodentop", so Stewart's first appearance in the series was in the first regular episode, "Funny Ol' Business - Cops & Robbers". By March 2007 Stewart was the last member of the cast remaining from that first episode.

In 2009, Stewart appeared in the video for "Black and Blue" by Swedish band Miike Snow. The video, directed by Vince Haycock, was shot on location in Hackney, London, and featured Stewart as a recluse musician with a penchant for creating animatronic performers in his dingy apartment, and presented the long hair and a large beard he had grown in the year since he left The Bill.

Stewart was born in Aberdeen but moved with his family to Southampton, Hampshire when he was three months old. His father initially worked in the shipyards and then for Fawley oil refinery.
