Making his feature film debut in 1996 starring in Small Faces, followed by a starring role alongside Ewan McGregor in the film Trainspotting the same year, Scottish actor Kevin McKidd has established himself as a multi-talented star of film, television and theatre.
McKidd's film credits include co-starring in the romantic comedy, Made of Honor, opposite Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan, and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, alongside Rosario Dawson, Uma Thurman and Pierce Brosnan. McKidd also starred in Bunraku, starring alongside Josh Harnett, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson and Ron Perlman and he can be seen as a detective in thriller Catwalk.
In 2007, McKidd made his debut on American network television as the star of drama Journeyman. While unfortunately the show was short-lived, it helped to establish McKidd as a television household name. Prior to Journeyman, he starred in Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated historical drama, Rome.
Other film credits include Hannibal Rising; Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven; De-Lovely, with Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd; Sixteen Years of Alcohol - for which he was nominated for Best Actor at the British Independent Film Awards; Nicholas Nickleby and Max, with John Cusack.
Born and raised in Scotland, McKidd was a member of the Moray Youth Theatre. He became involved in the Bedlam Theatre Company while he was a student at the University of Edinburgh, and it was at here that he decided to pursue acting full-time, landing his first leading role in the Wild Cat Theatre Company-produced stage play, The Silver Darlings, for which he won the Gulliver Award.
