Steven Waddington (born 30 December 1967) is an English film and television actor. He is well-known for his supporting role in Michael Mann's The Last of the Mohicans.
Waddington was born in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire, the younger child of Peter Waddington and Averill Stubbs. He attended Old Farnley Primary School, Ryecroft Middle School and Intake High School, both in Leeds. He acted in school plays and appeared in several Yorkshire Television productions, among them Emmerdale Farm and Eighteen Desperate Hours, sometimes as an extra and sometimes with a few lines of dialogue. Shortly after his eighteenth birthday he won a place at East 15 Acting School in Loughton, Essex.
He finished his training in the summer of 1989 and subsequently joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, first at Stratford and then at the Barbican and on tour in Newcastle. He was cast in his first film, Edward II, after being recommended to Derek Jarman by fellow actor Nigel Terry, with whom he had worked previously in a production of Pericles at the RSC.
