Date of Birth : Feb 27th 1972
Contrary to popular belief Richard Coyle is not a Welshman but was born and raised in Sheffield, UK with his four brothers. He began his career when, studying politics York University (1991 – 1994), he got interested in amateur dramatics and traveled the Edinburgh festival twice.
A decision to raise funds to study at the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School resulted in an extra’s job on a new film adaptation of the classic novel Jane Eyre. When director Franco Zeffirelli heard Richard was about to start drama school he gave him a line, his first on screen: “Mr. Rochester, Mr. Rochester, your house sir!”
