Killian (he/him) is a Dublin born London based Actor and Independent Creative Producer working between Ireland and the UK.
After completing a degree in Economics & Geography at UCD in 2012, Killian made a quick pivot back into his lifelong passion with full-time Actor training at the Gaiety School of Acting, which he graduated from in 2015. As an Actor, Killian has had an extensive career spanning over a decade — recent credits include Call The Midwife (BBC1 / Netflix) & Endeavour (ITV / PBS).
He is represented by the Lisa Richards Agency in Ireland for both acting and voice, Conway Van Gelder Grant in the UK for acting, and Anthea Represents in the UK for voice.
Killian began his producing career soon after graduating from the GSA with an adaptation of Donal Ryan’s critically lauded debut novel, The Spinning Heart, which began it’s life at Smock Alley in 2016 before transferring to the prestigious Gaiety Theatre in 2017. That same year, he joined Reality:Check Productions and worked with the company to produce plays such as the Irish Times Theatre Award-winning Disco Pigs & Sucking Dublin by Enda Walsh, Debris by Dennis Kelly, Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh (adapted by Harry Gibson) and the Irish premiere of the critically acclaimed Iphigenia in Splott by Gary Owen.
“a wonderfully moving, politically challenging, and powerfully unsettling experience. Prepare to beshaken out of your comfort zone.” – The Arts Review (Iphigenia in Splott by Gary Owen)
There’s a dark heartbreak at the centre of “We Can’t Have Monkeys In The House” which its wild, delicious humour wonderfully underscores. Something its four strong cast dazzlingly convey, as well as delivering some laugh out loud moments. — The Arts Review (We Can’t Have Monkeys in the House by Ciara Elizabeth Smyth)
