After graduating from Salford College of Music and Drama, English actor Stephen Lord began guest starring in a number of British television programs. Among the more notable shows he appeared in include the crime drama "The Bill," the comedic drama "Heartbeat," and the comedy "Screen One." In 1995 Lord landed a small role in the Sylvester Stallone action movie "Judge Dredd." Lord returned to television in the late 1990s, appearing as a cast member on the British comedic drama, "Common As Muck," from 1994 to 1997, then as a detective on the crime drama, "City Central" in 1998 and '99. By the early 2000s Lord began appearing almost exclusively in movies, albeit in mostly smaller roles. In 2002 he appeared in the crime drama "Capone's Boys," and followed that up with roles in the 2007 action movie "Until Death," and the 2008 thriller "Kill Kill Faster Faster." Lord returned to television in 2007, playing the role of Jase in the British Soap Opera, "EastEnders," for one season, a role which earned Lord a Best Newcomer nomination at the 2008 British Soap Opera Awards. In 2010 Lord returned to more serious fare with a recurring role as a violent husband on the medical drama "Casualty."
