Keiran Urquhart on YEP Actors
Keiran Urquhart has come a long way in a short time.
After joining YEP Actors in time to help devise and perform in The Grid, the company’s first work for the new Everyman stage back in April 2014, he went on to quickly land his first professional job in Jeff Young’s Bright Phoenix, which premiered at the Everyman in October 2014.
That lead to a role in Scuttlers at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre and, in 2016, Keiran played Bruno in Leicester Curve’s touring production of Roald Dahl’s The Witches.
Wirral-based Keiran had always wanted to act, but never imagined it was something he could make a career of. After school, he studied drama at Liverpool Community College and was pointed in the direction of YEP.
“It’s been a whirlwind for me, and I owe a lot to everyone at the Everyman."
"When I performed in The Grid, I realised it was definitely what I was meant to be doing. YEP really made my dream possible and made me think ‘I can do this’. When I look back I can see how pivotal they were in pushing me to achieve things - it is a great foundation for anyone. If I hadn’t joined, none of this would have happened.”
