Steward 3 was Third Class Steward in 1997 Film Titanic.


The Steward was tall, white male. He had short dark hair and blue-gray eyes. During his appearances on the show, he wore a standard white 3rd class steward's tunic.


He is first seen entering a Third Class cabin (belonging to the Cartmell family) to throw the lifejackets on the floor so they can put it on and get on deck.

He is portrayed in the James Cameron film as a man who doesn't seem to comprehend the danger facing the people in Steerage. A perfect example is when he was telling them to stay calm and make sure they have their lifejackets on, he tells another steward to get help since he doesn't know how to handle the mob of passengers at the gate.

As panic builds with the passengers, he relents and has an assistant to open the gates to allow women and children up to the boat deck. Unfortunately, a few men break free and pandemonium escalates as he pulls out a gun and has a seaman with an axe and few stewards to push the passengers back and has the gates locked again.


The Steward went down with the ship, doing his job.[4]

Historical accuracyEdit

It is highly unlikely a steward would have a gun to use to threaten passengers.


The Steward's personality is more complex, he is able to allow women and children to escape to the boat deck. However when the rush of male passengers try to break through, he has the gate locked again with women and children still trapped below deck and he even draws his gun at the mob of people at the gate.
