Speirs (born Steven Roberts, 22 February 1965), sometimes spelled 'Spiers', is a Welsh actor.
He was born in Troed-y-rhiw, a village in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales and studied drama at Loughborough University. Since graduating, he has played Sloan in Eragon, Andy Fellows in Making Waves and the "pathetic loser" Dullard alongside Ricky Gervais in Extras, as well as having small parts in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (Captain Tarpals) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
He appears in Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire, a comedy fantasy series in which he plays Loquasto, an oafish servant, "who belongs to a race of pig-like creatures known as Grobble".
Speirs often goes by the name of "Dullard" in honour of his role in Extras, as he considers the character a mirror of himself. Speirs also appeared in the Gervais and Stephen Merchant film Cemetery Junction, released in 2010, a part which was written particularly for Speirs. Speirs also starred as the bouncer at Mother McOakley's Tavern in Burke and Hare, a British black comedy directed by John Landis and released (in the United Kingdom) in October 2010.
Two other roles in which Spiers is known for is his portrayal of Bernard Bresslaw in Cor, Blimey! and Colour Sergeant Wormwood in Sharpe's Peril.
