Kevin McKidd was brought up in Elgin, Scotland and was a member of the Moray Youth Theatre before going on to study engineering at the University of Edinburgh. While at university, Kevin became involved with Bedlam Theatre, the university's student theater company. At this point, Kevin decided to give up on engineering dropping out of university to pursue acting full-time. In 1994, he landed the leading role in the stageplay "The Silver Darlings", produced by Robert Carlyle's Rain Dog Theatre Company. It was only a matter of time before Kevin made his screen debut as the vicious gang leader Malky Johnson in Gillies Mackinnon's Small Faces (1996). His next role was as the tragic, gentle giant Tommy in Trainspotting (1996). Currently, he plays Dr. Owen Hunt on the TV medical drama, Grey's Anatomy.
