Kit Young

Kit Young is best known for his role as Jesper Fahey, one of The Crows in Netflix’s hit series Shadow and Bone. He began his career in theatre, playing the lead in The Extraordinary Cabaret of Dorian Gray at the 2017 Underbelly Theatre Festival in South Bank. He also joined the UK tour of The Real Thing as Billy. In 2018, he played Octavius in a production of Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre, the Journalist in a production of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie at Donmar Warehouse, and Malcolm in Macbeth at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at the Globe Theatre.

Kit made his television debut in 2019 with a guest role in Endeavour. He also appeared in the Dylan Holmes Williams directed short The Devil’s Harmony. That spring and summer, he played Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Bridge Theatre alongside Gwendoline Christie, which earned him an Ian Charleson Award nomination.

In October 2019, it was announced Kit would star as Jesper Fahey in Shadow and Bone, an adaptation of fantasy book series The Grisha Trilogy and the Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo. His performance has been acclaimed by several publications. He has since had starring roles in the films The Origin, The School for Good and Evil and The Beautiful Game, and has been announced to play Tootles in Alien, the TV prequel to the Alien film franchise.
