Michael Xavier stars as Dr. Steph Belcombe in Gentleman Jack.
Gentleman Jack, a period drama set in 19th-century Halifix in West Yorkshire, England, tells the story of Anne Lister, a well-off Yorkshire landowner famous for her four-million-word diary that documented her lesbian relationships, travels and efforts to transform the fate of her faded ancestral home Shibden Hall.
From the Bafta award winning writer Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley, Last Tango In Halifax, To Walk Invisible), Gentleman Jack is a remarkable and unlikely love story. The cast includes Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing), Katherine Kelly (Happy Valley), Derek Riddell (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald), Rupert Vansittart (Game of Thrones) and Brendan Patricks (Downton Abbey).
Michael is known for his performances in “Never Let Go”, the quirky comedy “Gnomeland” and appearing with the Muppets in “Muppets: Most Wanted”. He has played leads in over twenty West End musicals, receiving two Olivier Award nominations for roles as The Wolf/ Cinderella’s Prince in “Into the Woods” and Oliver in “Love Story”, and winning a Broadway World Award for his performance as Joe Gillis in “Sunset Boulevard” opposite Glenn Close in London and on Broadway.
