Early Life: Patrick Stewart was born in Mirfield, West Riding of Yorkshire, England in 1940. He grew up in a poor household with an abusive father. Some of the abuse was perhaps attributable to PTSD his father suffered as a result of his experiences in World War II.
An acting teacher in junior school fostered Patrick's love of acting after exposing him to Shakespeare. Patrick left formal school at 15 to pursue acting full-time. He became a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1966, and was a part of the company until 1982. In 1979 he won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in the production of Antony and Cleopatra.
Star Trek: Patrick landed the role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in 1987. At the time he was an unknown British actor living out of a suitcase because he was extremely skeptical that the show would succeed. Actually, his entire plan was to gain a bit of exposure while banking a bunch of money before returning to England where he would get back to Shakespeare. He planned to be with Star Trek for no more than a year. That year turned into more than three decades.
Patrick would go on to appear in 178 episodes of The Next Generation between 1987 and 1994. He also starred in several feature films based on the franchise.
Star Trek Salary: In 1992, it occurred to Patrick that what he was earning in 15 minutes worth of overtime as Picard would have taken him a week to earn back in England on the stage. By that point he was earning a base salary of $45,000 per episode. At his peak of The Next Generation, Patrick earned $100,000 per episode, which is the same as around $180,000 per episode after adjusting for inflation.
For the 1996 film Star Trek: First Contact, Patrick earned $5 million. For 1998's Star Trek: Insurrection, he earned $9.5 million. For 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis he earned $14 million in salary and also served as a producer.
