Rob Stewart (born 23 July 1961) is a Canadian actor born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada principally known for the lead role of Nick Slaughter in the action-comedy television series Tropical Heat and his recurring role as Roan in Nikita.
Growing up in Bramalea, a neighbourhood in the city of Brampton, Rob loved to play hockey, dreaming of becoming a professional. At the age of 17, he sustained an injury that caused him to lose a kidney and subsequently turn down a number of athletic scholarships that had been offered to him.
He enrolled at the University of Waterloo where he majored in Latin and English. In order to put himself through university, he took up his guitar, set some poems to music and sang in local restaurants. In the summers, he did stunts and acrobatics at Canada's Wonderland amusement park.
Throughout his career he has guest starred in numerous television roles and was one of the leads in the television show Peter Benchley's Amazon.
Towards the end of his run on Nikita he also had a minor role of an alcoholic movie producer over a few episodes of the Canadian series The L.A. Complex that depicts the lives of young Canadian actors struggling for work in Los Angeles. This was followed by an appearance in two episodes of the long-running CBC Television series Heartland.
Airing on the CW, he appeared in six episodes of Beauty & the Beast as the character Mr. Chandler. Soon after, Stewart appeared in an episode of the Syfy television series Defiance being shot in his hometown Toronto, followed by another one-episode role - this time on the Canadian series Cracked.
In 2013, he played a role in the series Suits as Tony Gianapolous, a corporate raider.
