Thomas was born in Greenwich and attended John Roan School in Blackheath. He played youth cricket for Blackheath Cricket Club and for Kent before going to Leeds University to study Sports Science.

During this time he found his love for performing and dancing, drawing inspiration from both local and international artists. At fourteen Steven began taking part in local talent shows around Johannesburg and he was hooked.

At university he was park of the Leeds/Bradford MCC Universities cricket team. A series of back injuries in his late teens, including a triple-stress fracture of his back, threatened Thomas' career.

He has credited Pilates and other core strength exercises with helping to save his career Thomas made his first-class cricket debut for Leeds/Bradford MCC Universities in March 2012 in a match against Surrey.

He played six first-class matches for the team between 2012 and 2014 as well as playing in MCC Universities competitions.

Thomas made his Kent debut in May 2012 against Essex in the 2012 County Championship.

He made a second appearance for Kent against the touring South Africans later in the season. A variety of injury concerns limited his Kent appearances in 2013 and 2014, but in 2015 he played more regularly for the side, making 11 first-class appearances as well as appearing in List A cricket and Twenty20 matches for the county and signing a contract extension in August.

During the 2014–15 English winter Thomas played for Sunshine Coast Scorchers in Brisbane Grade Cricket in Queensland. During the 2015–16 off-season he cycled from Land's End to John O'Groats, raising more than £4,000 for the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young.
