Langley Kirkwood was born in England, on 14 April 1973 of South African and West-Indian parents, and after a tumultuous childhood in Apartheid-era South Africa, he fell in love with the art of acting. He studied drama at school and then at the prestigious University of the Witwatersrand and within a few years had become a multi-award winning actor of both stage and screen.


His breakthrough performance was as Billy the Kid in Shooting Billy the Kid at Johannesburg’s Market Theatre, for which he won an FNB Vita Award. Since then he has appeared in countless award-winning television shows, theatre productions and films, both locally in South Africa, and internationally, as well as being a busy voice-over artist. His career credits are extensive and he has appeared in major productions such as the multi-Emmy award winning Generation Kill for HBO, Clint Eastwood’s Invictus, Dredd and more recently, Black Sails for Starz, Dominion for Sci-Fy and the Emmy-award winning Banshee for HBO/Cinemax, playing Colonel Douglas Stowe.


He is still passionate about the stage, and likes to return to theatre when time allows. He was a member of The Mechanicals Theatre Company in Cape Town, and his stand-out role on Cape Town stages was that of Biff Loman opposite Bill Flynn In Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, which earned them both Fleur Du Cap awards.


He is the proud father of two children and lives between Cape Town and Los Angeles. He is passionate about helping to preserve our planet and its natural resources, as well as health and fitness, and he spends much of his free time trail running, cycling and competing in ultra distance triathlons such as the Ironman.
