Patrick Hewes Stewart, (born 13 July 1940) is an English film, television and stage actor.
Stewart has had a distinguished career in theatre for nearly fifty years, including performances as various characters in Shakespearean productions. However, he is perhaps most widely known for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Professor Xavier in the X-Men films. He also provided the voiceover for the film, The Invention of Lying directed by Ricky Gervais but it was cut from the film.
Stewart appeared in the sixth episode of the first series of Extras, co-written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Stewart plays himself and comes across as a rather dirty old man who writes a screenplay which essentially is just a string of situations in which women's clothes fall off. He also helps Andy Millman apologize to his friend, Maggie Jacobs since Andy "is not man enough" to say he's sorry.
- Stewart: So, in my film, I play a man who controls the world with his mind.
Andy: Right. That's interesting.
Stewart: For instance, I'm walking along, and I see this beautiful girl, and I think I'd like to see her naked, and so all her clothes fall off.
Andy: All her clothes fall off?
Stewart: Mmm. Yes. And she's scrabbling around to get them back on again, but even before she can get her knickers on, I've seen everything. I've seen it all.
Andy: Ok... So, comedy, is it?
Stewart: No. It's about what would happen if these things were possible.
Andy: What's the story though?
Stewart: Well, I do other stuff, like I'm riding my bike in the park, and this policewoman says, "Oi! You can't ride your bike on the grass." And I go, "Oh no?", and her uniform falls off, and she goes "Aaaah!", and she's trying to cover up, but I've seen everything anyway, and I get on my bike and ride off. On the grass.
Andy: So, it's mainly you going around seeing ladies' tits?
Stewart: Mainly. And I do other stuff. Like I go to the World Cup Final and it's Germany vs. England. And I wish I were playing and suddenly I am! And I score the winning goal. They carry me into the dressing room, and there's Rooney and Beckham and then Posh Spice walks in and --
Andy: Her clothes fall off?'
