Kevin McKidd

Biography

An established star of film, television and theater, Scottish actor Kevin McKidd made his feature film debut in 1996, starring in Gillies MacKinnon's "Small Faces," followed by a starring role alongside Ewan McGregor in the film "Trainspotting." He has also been a brooding Caesar-era soldier in HBO's "Rome" and a time-travelling journalist in the 2007 NBC drama "Journeyman."

In recent years, McKidd appeared in the films "North of Hell" and the Justin Chadwick-directed "Tulip Fever." He also voiced the character Reptillus Maximus in the Pixar animated holiday TV special "Toy Story That Time Forgot" on ABC. In addition, McKidd voiced two characters, Young MacGuffin and Lord MacGuffin, in the Disney/Pixar animated film "Brave" in 2012. In 2010, he appeared alongside Rosario Dawson, Uma Thurman and Pierce Brosnan in Chris Columbus' "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief." In 2008, he co-starred in the romantic comedy "Made of Honor," alongside Michelle Monaghan. Other film credits include "Hannibal Rising"; Ridley Scott's "Kingdom of Heaven"; the Irwin Winkler musical "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"; "Hideous Kinky" with Kate Winslet; and "Max" with John Cusack.

In 2007, McKidd made his debut on American network television as the star of NBC's "Journeyman." While the show was short-lived, it resonated with television critics and helped establish McKidd as a household name. Prior to "Journeyman," he starred in HBO's Golden Globe and Emmy®-nominated "Rome." Other television credits include "The Virgin Queen," "Gunpowder, Treason and Plot" and "North Square."
 
McKidd's theater credits include "Richard III," "Britannicus," for which he won an Ian Charleston Award, and "Far Away." He also released an album of traditional Scottish folk songs, "The Speyside Sessions," with a group of friends in 2012. Proceeds from the album benefit the charity Save the Children, for which McKidd is an ambassador.

Born and raised in Scotland, McKidd was a member of the Moray Youth Theatre. He became involved in the Bedlam Theatre Company while a student at the University of Edinburgh, and it was there that he decided to pursue acting full time. His first leading role came in the Wild Cat Theatre Company-produced "The Silver Darlings," for which he won the Gulliver Award.

McKidd currently resides in Los Angeles with his family.
