Maggie Steed Acting

Maggie Steed



Maggie graduated from Professional Acting in 1960s and has gone on to have a long and successful career on both stage and screen.

In 2017 Maggie joined the cast of Eastenders, and most recently appeared in Paddington 2, Fisherman’s Friends, Fisherman’s Friends: One and All, and Ten Percent. 

Steed was also active in the Campaign Against Racism in the Media. She appeared in an edition of the BBC’s Open Door series on 1 March 1979 (with Stuart Hall) entitled “It Ain’t Half Racist, Mum”, criticising British television’s discussion and representation of immigration and racial stereotypes.[2]

She helped write and perform in the comedy benefit concert An Evening for Nicaragua, at the Shaftesbury Theatre, which was shown on British television in 1983.

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
