    After reminiscing with a few heads on here I decided to start a thread dedicated to TV superstars of old and to find out what they are doing now.

    I will start with

    JEFF STEWART AKA REG HOLLIS FROM THE BILL

    [​IMG]

    Jeff Stewart (born 28 October 1955 in Aberdeen) is a Scottish actor probably best known as PC Reg Hollis in the ITV drama The Bill, a role he played from 1984 to 2008.

    Before appearing in "The Bill" Stewart played numerous roles in other television series, including Harry Fellows in Crossroads in 1964 (his first television appearance) and Dukkha in the Doctor Who story Kinda in 1982. He played a police constable in Hi-De-Hi! in 1983, the same year "Woodentop" (the pilot episode of "The Bill"), aired.

    Reg Hollis is mentioned but not seen in "Woodentop", so Stewart's first appearance in the series was in the first regular episode, "Funny Ol' Business - Cops & Robbers". By March 2007 Stewart was the last member of the cast remaining from that first episode.

    On January 8, 2008 Stewart cut his wrists after being told that his contract for The Bill would not be renewed. He survived the suicide attempt after calling for help and being taken to hospital by ambulance.

    Stewart later said of the incident, "I love being an actor. My work as an actor is very important to me - it's my life, and the thought of this suddenly changing had an extremely serious effect on me."

    Stewart has since grown a bushy beard and taken to wearing outsize blazers and tartan scarves in public.

    In early December 2008, he was pictured in the Daily Mirror, outside a theatre which he regularly goes to.

    So the moral of this story is.............................
