* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Creator/IanMckellen--the two are very close friends who've worked on many projects together.
* IAmVeryBritish: Grew up speaking a Yorkshire accent as well as the local dialect but now always speaks with a smart RP accent. The Yorkshire accent is something he can revert to when needed: his bemusement of cockney TV chatshow host Jonathan Ross, for instance, or his Geroge Formby impersonation in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''.

** In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', the character he plays, Bullock, is designed to resemble Stewart. This is particularly noticeable in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' gags involving Patrick Stewart, in which they use the exact same character model as they do for Bullock.
** A strange case in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''. While he didn't do the voice acting for that show, the creators designed Professor X to look like Stewart, having been inspired by his performance in the X-Men films. This trend carried on into ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'' and other media where the character appears.

* MostlyNarmless: He's highly renowned for being able to deliver any material he's given, no matter how ridiculous, with utter sincerity. This served him well during the dodgier episodes of TNG.

* NotSoAboveItAll: Patrick Stewart initially didn't appreciate how his castmates would crack jokes and pull pranks on one another while on the set of TNG and even went so far as to call a cast meeting to address the issue, saying that he thought such behavior was unprofessional and disrespectful to the crew. The others showed him that they were serious about their jobs and convinced him that a bit of levity on set made working on a show like ''Star Trek'' much easier. When that happened, Stewart showed that he could keep up with the best of them in the jokes and pranks department.

** In the afore mentioned brief appearance on ''Sesame Street'', he uses his classic order of [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration "Make it so, Number One."]] to get the literal number 1 to get back in line.

* AdamWesting: His role on ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is essentially the writers trying to cram everything that would sound ridiculous coming out of Picard's mouth into the script.

* ClassicallyTrainedExtra: Inverted: Once a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, he said it was good practice for playing Picard, and has never tried to distance himself from the role.

'''Sir Patrick Stewart, OBE''' (July 13, 1940-), is a British actor best known for playing Captain Jean-Luc Picard in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and Professor Charles Xavier in the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' movies. [[note]]This casting choice is the only thing comic book fans have ''ever'' universally agreed upon.[[/note]]

Stewart was born [[OopNorth in Mirfield, West Yorkshire]], studying drama at the Bristol Old Vic theatre school before moving on to the Royal Shakespeare Company. He had lost most of his hair by the age of 19, and impressed during his audition for the Old Vic by performing both with and without a wig and proclaiming himself to be "two actors for the price of one".

Stewart has always laughed off those who suggest that, as a classically-trained actor, he was "slumming it" in things like ''Star Trek'' - he suggested that in fact, all the kings and emperors that he had played with the RSC were merely preparation for the iconic role of captaining the new Starship ''Enterprise''.

Similarly, Stewart has always tried to remain in touch with his theatrical roots - spending a season at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in his native Leeds, he had little time for critics who suggested that this was all the work he could find - he was doing it because [[DoingItForTheArt he]] ''[[DoingItForTheArt wanted]]'' [[DoingItForTheArt to do it]]. His various theatre roles include playing Theatre/{{Othello}} among an otherwise entirely black cast. Amusingly, at first he was one of the few TNG castmembers who [[ConsummateProfessional took their job fully seriously and didn't mess around on-set]], until he loosened up and, according to co-star Creator/LeVarBurton, would mess around and wreak havoc with the best of them.
