Steve Jackson was born April 1970 in Doncaster. He attended Tranmoor Junior School and the Armthorpe Comprehensive School, leaving in 1989. He changed his name for a time to Steven Fury but eventually reverted to his original name after being offered a few bit-parts (including Ben Dingle in Emmerdale in 1994). On Coronation Street he played the Stranger who was befriended by Mike Baldwin at a train station when a confused Mike went to track down his son Mark Redman in Doncaster. In January 2010, he began playing the more regular role of Trevor Dean; bin-man, lodger of Janice Battersby and unlikely boyfriend of Carla Connor. He was axed by new producer Phil Collinson in May 2010 and left the series towards the end of the year, however the character was brought back for a week's stint in March 2011.
He is a Sheffield Wednesday fan.
