Who is Keir Charles?
One of the most secretive British actors, Keir Charles was born in England, but has succeeded in keeping his date of birth away from the media’s attention; it’s widely believed that he was born in 1979, and that his zodiac sign is Aquarius, but this remains unconfirmed. Keir has 44 acting credits, and is perhaps still known best for portraying Press Conference Reporter in the popular 2003 romantic comedy movie “Love Actually”, which starred Liam Neeson and Hugh Grant, and was written and directed by Richard Curtis. It follows eight different couples right before Christmas in London, England, and the film won 10 of the 39 awards for which it was nominated.
Early life and education
Keir was raised in London by his parents, about whom he’s yet to speak in public as he respects their privacy; it’s believed that his father was a theatre actor and his mother a professional dancer, but this hasn’t been confirmed by Keir. He’s also believed to be an only child, as he hasn’t spoken about whether or not he has siblings.
Keir studied at a local high school in London, and was mostly into acting during his four years there, appearing in nearly all the plays performed at the school; he also enjoyed playing soccer with his peers, and taking guitar lessons.
It’s believed that Keir matriculated sometime in the second half of the ‘90s and that he then continued his education at a local college, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in drama four years later.
Roles in movies
Keir’s debut film role was playing Tyler in the 2001 short comedy “Sand”, and some of his following roles were in the 2001 action crime comedy “High Heels and Low Lifes”, the 2002 short drama “What Larry Says”, and the 2004 short drama “Indecision”.
In 2005, he portrayed Grenadier Guard in the drama “Our Hidden Lives”, which starred Sarah Parish and Ian McDiarmid, and was directed by Michael Samuels. Based on the best-selling book by Simon Garfield, the movie follows four people who lived in Britain during its ‘lost decade’ (1945-1955). Keir appeared in only two movies in the remainder of the 2000s, both in 2006 – the drama “Fear of Fanny” and the biographical drama “HG Wells’ War with the World”.
In 2011, he portrayed Lewis Grisby in the biographical romantic drama “William & Catherine: A Royal Romance”, which starred Dan Amboyer and Jane Alexander, and was written and directed by Linda Yellen; it follows the lives of Kate Middleton and Prince William. Keir could then have been seen appearing in the 2011 thriller comedy “Black Pond”, the 2012 drama “Kursk”, and the 2015 romantic comedy “Man Up”.
He starred as Ryan in the 2016 romantic comedy “Across the River”, which also starred Liz Richardson and Elizabeth Healey, and was directed by Warren B. Malone. It follows two people who were each other’s first love, and who are now deciding whether or not to start dating again.
Keir’s since appeared in just two movies: the 2018 comedy “Dead in a Week or Your Money Back”, and the 2019 historical family comedy “Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans”.
Roles in TV series
Keir’s debut TV series role was playing Daniel in the 2000 episode “Hot Mail” of the drama “Attachments”, and the following years saw him appear in an episode or two of the comedy “Peep Show”, the drama “Family Business”, and the crime drama “The Bill”.
From 2004 through 2006, he portrayed Oliver in eight episodes of the comedy “Green Wing”, which starred Oliver Chris and Sally Bretton, and was created by Victoria Pile. It follows a group of people working at a hospital, and the series won four of its 16 award nominations. The remainder of the 2000s saw Keir appear in an episode of the drama “Holby City”, and the romantic crime drama “EastEnders”.
