James Lewis Huss
Stewart is a 60-year-old Canadian BFA (Drama) graduate of The University of Calgary, Class of 1990, that came to Taiwan in 2000, exhausted and completely defeated by the pauper life of trying to be an actor in Vancouver.
The raison d'etre was to produce professional theatre in the resort town of Whistler BC to rival
Canada's Stratford Festival.
Theatrically, he was enjoying many successes.....in Vancouver: A Jessie Award (Vancouver's Tony) winning producer and nominated actor, and casting calls for episodics like The X Files and The Outer Limits were in abundance.
Alas, never landed that all-important first gig.
Whistler-wise, after 9 years of banging head against wall, Stewart finally adapted, directed, and produced a very meaningful Romeo and Juliet to address his concerns over the tragic events in Columbine, Colorado. It was an unheralded triumph.
Lesson Learned: Whistler Dream over
Being featured as Dr. Patrick Manson in SEQALO, Formosa 1867 is a crowning achievement in more than 30 years of "never giving up".
A career resurrection took place upon attaining an APRC in 2007 as commercial gigs began to get booked. When Brook Hall came a-knocking offering the co-lead in his production of Wait Until Dark, Stewart and The Theatre were officially reunited.
Thrice directing 4-Hour Play Festivals and twice producing (and acting in) White Rabbit Red Rabbit events, he will soon be co-starring with Michelle Kao and Sharon Landon in the TAS AP Film studies short film Cheddar.
