Gary Lewis (1957 - )

Actor

Gary Lewis was born Gary Stevenson on the 30th of November 1957 in Easterhouse, Glasgow.

With no formal dramatic training, he came to acting via local political engagement. He made his first mark at the 1979 Edinburgh Festival with his acclaimed role in Freddy Anderson's 'Krassivy', as Scottish Socialist John MacLean.

There followed a dozen years of real life before he chose to commit to acting professionally, initially in local theatre groups, graduating to short films, via a close and ongoing artistic relationship with actor/director Peter Mullan. He progressed to television and feature film work, in the UK and now internationally, working with the likes of Martin Scorsese and Daniel Day-Lewis on 'Gangs of New York' in 2002.
