Stuart returned to acting following careers in both the army and as an overseas emergency aid worker.
He started Shakespeare young, playing Paulina in Winter’s Tale and the Duchess of York in Richard II as a boy actor in original practice productions.
Subsequently trained at Birkbeck College, he has most recently been seen as Pierre Brochant in Diner de Cons (Dir: Tom Noad) and Peter in A Wedding Story (Dir: Emma Kilbey); during the 2007 summer season, he played Bottom in Mid-summer Night’s Dream (David Crilly) and Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet (Simon Bell) at the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival.
Other credits include Menelaus in Trojan Women, Orestes in Electra, and Judge Brack in Hedda Gabler (Janet Amsden). Stuart is most proud of his supporting role to two, talking scones and a club sandwich in a forthcoming TV ad (Post Bingo; Dir: Mat Sunderland; Sunipa Pictures)
