Steve has starred in over 250 hours of content, including four TV series, over a dozen movies, voiced some of the world’s most successful video games and beloved children’s cartoons, as well as starring in many critically acclaimed dramas and sit-coms.
Beginning his acting career on the English stage performing in plays, musicals and British Pantomimes, Steve moved to Hollywood in the early 90’s where he survived by working as a world class, award-winning magician between auditions and film jobs.
His first big break came playing the eccentric Nigel Townsend on NBC’s crime drama “Crossing Jordan”. For 7 seasons Valentine rattled of many a snappy “criminology” monologue, his British accent making it sound like he knew what he was talking about. The show was a big hit for the network bringing in an audience of 15-20 million viewers per night.
Following “Crossing Jordan” Steve switched genres to star in 50 episodes of the hilarious American sit-com “I’m in the Band”, where he played rocker Derek Jupiter, the narcissistic lead singer of the iconic 80’s hair band Iron Weasel.
Next he played the villain Les Camembert in Disney’s blockbuster movie “Teen Beach Movie.” The film premiered to 13.5 million viewers, making it the number 2 most watched movie in cable TV history.
For his next feature Valentine donned a Brooklyn accent playing the wild-moustached “inside man” Barry Greenhouse in Robert Zemeckis’ 3-D wonder The Walk, along side Joseph Gordon-Levitt. A performance the New York Times film critic A.O. Scott called ‘scene stealing’.
Steve Valentine recently took time to get back to the stage where he joined the cast of what critics described as a “vigorously physical and wickedly intelligent” production of “The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity” which played at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, California. The play has won top awards including the Obie Award for Best New American Play.
Recently Steve was seen recurring in Apple + award winning series GHOSTWRITER and the biggest TV show in the world, NCIS LA, an unforgettable funny and quirky partnering with Vinnie Jones and in the hugely successful CBS sitcom, MOM alongside award winning actress Allison Janney.
The art of magic and illusion has been a life-long passion of Steve’s and he has been exploring the craft since childhood to become one of the world’s most respected authorities on magic history, performance and theory. Over the years the Academy of Magical Arts has garnered Steve with multiple awards.
In 2011 Valentine founded Bloody Brilliant Productions a company that has been steadily building a slate of both scripted and unscripted content, developing with NBC, USA, SyFy and TNT networks to name a few. In 2017 the company created a global magic education OTT channel called Magic on the Go, a subscription based on-demand service designed for anyone who loves magic, with countless subscribers world-wide.
Following a recent deal with AfterShock Comics Steve is currently deep into the creation of his first Superhero comic series, tentatively titled ‘Super…’
Recently Bloody Brilliant also staged “Life and Other Deceptions” Valentine’s autobiographical theatrical experience that seamlessly blends hilarious and heart breaking narrative with stunning sleight of hand. The play chronicles Steve’s journey as a performer and his nearly lost love for magic.
Steve splits his time between Los Angeles, London and Toronto Canada, where he lives with wife, actress Inna Korobkina, two beautiful children and Ziggy, one crazy ass dog.
