Steve Toussaint (born 22 March, 1965) is a British actor, best known for his roles in Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Judge Dredd, and Shooting Dogs. He has been cast as Lord Corlys Velaryon in Season 1 of House of the Dragon.[1]

Background

Steve Toussaint was born in the United Kingdom to Barbadian parents. He actually had his last name legally changed to "Toussaint" because his birth name conflicted with a pre-existing member of his actors' union. He chose the name from Toussaint Louverture, the Haitain revolutionary leader (as at the time he had been reading about him in "The Black Jacobins" by CLR James).[2]

He made his professional debut as Steve Dixie on The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

On February 11, 2021, it was announced that Toussaint would be playing Corlys Velaryon in House of the Dragon.
