Stewart Thomas an actor, writer and director wasn't always as into the field of show business as he is now. While the big and small screens interested him as much as they did anyone he didn't develop the passion he had for it until seeing the work of the famous actor Will Smith. Seeing someone do what they love and do it well was inspiring. Starting from the bottom and working their way up was something that Stewart could relate to with ease and did. He began to take acting classes starting in High School and would continue the path of acting throughout college albeit wondering if it was a "safe" path with the economy in the shape that it was but going for broke is something that he had become accustomed to. If it was a risk to try something that he liked then it was more than a risk worth taking. When he began his acting classes he would find that he had some natural talent and instinct when he saw the scene to create the world around him instead of just adjust to the basics. His teachers saw talent and charisma but still a student that needed training. He would spend the next few years taking voice, stage and film acting, writing and directing classes to improve his abilities as well as some behind the scenes classes but found himself more drawn to being in front of the camera. Stewart firmly believes that the path you create is the path you should take which drew him to begin writing. The first movie he would write and produce as well as play a minor part in is his own feature length film Virtuous Acts (Jack Dragon) and after this film he learned his shortcomings as well as his strengths in film making and would begin to adjust accordingly. Knowing that only participating in films he wrote would be a far slower process he began auditioning in the New York/City areas which would lead him to be cast in several works such as The Leftovers (Riot), Seven Keys to Baldpate (Officer) and his leading role in web series by Glen Baisley Tales of Light and Dark: Truth, Justice and the American Way (Father Peter), Rise of the Silent Wolf where he plays the Silent Wolf himself (Texas Reed). Stewart now works on varying independent projects as a writer, director, cinematographer and actor and is constantly working to expand his talents and horizons.
If there is anything I can say and hope sticks with at least one of you its this. "Just because the dream was cut short doesn't give you an excuse to quit, its a reason to try harder."
