Luke Kirby

Luke Kirby (born June 21, 1978) is a Canadian theatre, film and television actor. Luke was born in Hamilton, Ontario, to two American expatriates. His mother is from Brooklyn, New York, and his father grew up "along the eastern seaboard". His parents moved from New York City, New York, to Canada in 1974. Kirby studied drama at the National Theatre School of Canada, a theatre conservatory which focuses on classical works, and graduated in 2000. Luke has been performing since his teens after he was accepted at The National Theatre School of Canada. He graduated in May 2000 and after two auditions found himself working on two separate projects in major roles; the CBS/Alliance mini-series Haven and director Léa Pool's feature Lost and Delirious. Soon after, Luke performed the role of 'Morgan' in the Factory Theatre's production of Geometry in Venice in Toronto, a performance that garnered him a Best Actor nomination at the Dora Mavor Moore Awards. This was quickly followed by the role of 'Patroclus' in Theatre for a New Audience's production of Troilus and Cressida directed by Sir Peter Hall in New York City.
