Steve Blackwood is an American actor. He joined the show Days of Our Lives in 1997 in the recurring role of crime figure Bart Beiderbecke. He portrayed Henry Gein in the 2000 film In the Light of the Moon. In early 2005, he was offered a contract to continue the Beiderbecke role. Although he was under contract with the show, he was rarely seen, as the characters of his bosses were either dead or usually in hiding. Blackwood returned to Days on May 31, 2007, after being away from the show for nearly two years. On August 3, 2007, he left the show after his character was caught in a sword fight between Andre and Tony Dimera (both played by Thaao Penghlis).
