Steward 2 was Third Class Steward in 1997 Film Titanic.
The Steward was 5′ 8″ (1.72 m) tall, white male. He had short, mid-brown hair and blue eyes. During his appearances on the show, he wore a standard white 3rd class steward's tunic.
His first appearance is where he distributes lifejackets and telling the passenger to put on their lifejackets. In the process he gives the last lifejacket to Tommy Ryan while Tommy and Fabrizio de Rossi look for a way to get to the boat deck.
He then is seen behind a locked gate trying to prevent Third Class passengers from rushing the boat deck by telling them to head back to the main stairwell, he even has the keys which could unlock that gate. He gets into a heated altercation with Jack Dawson when he refuses to open the gates, by repeating what he told the other passengers. In a desperate move; Jack, Tommy, and another Third Class Passenger use a bench as a battering ram against the locked gate. While the other steward make a run for it, he stays behind to yell at them for breaking the gate before Tommy knocks him out.
The Steward's personality hints that while he is able to give out lifejackets to the Steerage passengers, he would rather hinder their escape by trying to give them phony directions to where to congregate. When Jack and his friends break down the gate, he stays and yells at them to stop while his other steward makes a run for it. This shows he more brave than the other steward who was also older than him and would rather not get involved with the rebellious passengers.
It is unlikely that a real steward would have locked the gates below decks. The incidents described by survivors in Third Class would have happened at the aft end of the aft well deck.
- The steward most likely drowned below deck.
- The steward's accent is Southern English, lower middle class, which was typical for a steward, who were generally required to look and sound a bit more refined than a typical working man of the period.
