Was [[KnightFever knighted]] in the 2010 New Year Honours List for services to drama. He still contributes to his local community, being the chancellor of the nearby University of Huddersfield and having been president of the local football (soccer) academy since his return to the UK in 2004.

* BadAssBaritone: One of the deepest, most commanding voices you'll ever hear and why he's always been a natural for leaders and authority figures, be they good or evil.

* BadAssBaritone: One of the deepest, most commanding voices you'll ever hear and why he's always been a natural for leaders and authority figures, be they good or evil. His voice is practically a force of nature unto itself.

* IAmVeryBritish: Grew up speaking a Yorkshire accent as well as the local dialect but now always speaks with a smart RP accent.

to:

* 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''.


Added DiffLines:

** Much to the bafflement of an American audience, one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' sees Director Bullock of the CIA, in his downtime in between interviews, pick up a ukelele and perform ''[[Music/GeorgeFormby When I'm Cleaning Windows]]''. Stewart even performs this in his native broad Yorkshire accent. Which must really bemuse Americans.

* ActingForTwo: More like Acting for Fifty. He put on a one-man stage production of Creator/CharlesDickens's ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'', in which he played every character.



* HeyItsThatVoice: His voice is instantly recognizable anywhere you go. Just for fun, read this entire article with his voice.



* MoneyDearBoy:
** His role in ''Wild Geese 2''. He urgently needed money for an expensive home repair job and that was the first role he was offered upon receiving the bill from the repairman.
** His primary motivation for taking on the role of Picard. He wasn't particularly enthused about [=TNG=], at first, and thought the show would be quickly canceled so he took the role thinking that he'd be able to make some cash before going back to theatre roles in Britain[[note]]he says he didn't even unpack his suitcases for the first two seasons[[/note]]. To his surprise, the show was a success and he began to realize the impact Star Trek and its characters had on people, leading him to become one of Star Trek's most vocal advocates.



* OneOfUs: He is a classically trained Shakespearean actor who is also a big fan of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'', ''Series/RedDwarf'', and ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}''.



* PlayingAgainstType:
** His ''flaming'' CampGay turn as an interior decorator in ''Jeffrey''.
** His role as Bullock on ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', the writers even specifically said they try to make Patrick do as much silly things as then can with him in the show.
* PromotedFanboy: On the 10th anniversary night for ''Series/RedDwarf'', he gave the opening introduction while delivering [[StrangeSalute the Rimmer salute]].



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** He's a big fan of Creator/WarrenEllis' ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}'' (he even wrote an introduction for volume 5) and at one point was being considered for the role of Spider Jerusalem in a movie adaptation. When that fell straight into DevelopmentHell, Ellis instead [[ComicBookFantasyCasting cast him]] as the father of one of Spider's Filthy Assistants.
** His personal interference prevented ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' from being a TimeTravel farce about Captain Picard impersonating the injured inventor of the warp drive.
** He was up for the role of Jafar in Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', but couldn't fit it into his schedule (since he was filming ''TNG'' at the time). He considers not voicing Jafar one of his biggest career regrets.
** After Creator/VincentPrice became too sick to play Santa Claus in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'', Stewart was the first choice to replace him, though he ended up not having time to record his lines. He still provides the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTJaqR7dedg opening narration]] on the soundtrack, as well as a scrapped [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udDDa1aAw_o closing speech]], in character as Santa.
** He was a candidate for Mr. Freeze in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''.
** His role as Jean-Luc Picard was originally offered to Creator/EdwardJamesOlmos. Olmos ''did'' get a [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 starship]] to command, but a lot later.
** He was considered for the role in ''Series/{{Community}}'' that went to Creator/ChevyChase.
** He has always lamented the fact that he was never tapped for a role in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' movies.

* CampStraight: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCMCifwQVC8 So, so much]].



* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Creator/IanMcKellen (if you discount the "heterosexual" part as regards [=McKellen=]).



* PrematurelyBald: He lost all of his hair by age 19. Eventually, it made him more recognizable.

** He's a Shakespearean actor who admittedly loves cartoons (he was offered a multitude of roles in the [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Disney]] [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Renaissance]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} projects]] made during ''TNG''s' run and Jeffrey Katzenberg's Disney tenure, but he couldn't take any of these roles). In one DavidLetterman interview he said the two things he'd miss most if he went back to England would be valet parking and... ''BeavisAndButthead''.
