Mini Bio (1)

Steve was born in Perth in 1967. His family soon moved to Sydney where he completed his schooling. After two years working his way around Australia on a motorbike he studied acting at Penrith (Theatre Nepean) in Sydney's outer west. His first job was a TV commercial for Arnott's Ruffles which was banned a day after its release for sacrilege. Since then Steve has had guest and lead roles on most of the Aussie serials and has featured in several movies both here and internationally (see IMDb listings).

On stage Steve has been seen in Death Of A Salesman, Summer Of The Seventeenth Doll, Paul, The Spook, Buried Child and Waiting For Godot for Company B Belvoir, plus shows for the Sydney Theatre Company (The War Of The Roses, The Serpent's Teeth, Gallipoli, Tales From the Vienna Woods {all for STC Actors' Company}, Holy Day and Don's Party) and for Griffin (The Return {by Reg Cribb - the stage version of Last Train To Freo}and Songket). Steve was a member of the elite STC's Actors' Company from 2007-09.

Le Marquand co-wrote, directed, produced and starred in the hugely successful theatre show He Died With A Felafel In His Hand (based on the book by John Birmingham - not to be confused with the film of the same name) which has been playing pretty much continuously somewhere in the world since its premiere at the Bridge Hotel in Rozelle in 1995 - cities include Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, New York, Toronto, Edinburgh and Wagga Wagga.

Steve lives on the Central Coast of NSW with his partner, Pippa Grandison and their daughter Charlie. Steve takes his cricket and rugby league quite seriously (he barracks for the Penrith Panthers).
