Craig Robert Young talks to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about being a working actor in LA, becoming a YouTube sensation and a rather dodgy job he once held at the Playboy Mansion. He is currently directing his own sitcom about Hollywood celebrity assistants, and together with the wonderful Eileen Lee, he runs the brilliant Brits in LA social group (a must for all Anglophiles to join).
Son of a coal miner in real life, Craig explains how his first professional job was aged 10 when he played a coal miner’s son in Barry Hine’s 'The Price of Coal' at the Nottingham Playhouse. Yes, very Billy Elliott.
At 17, while at drama school in London, fame beckoned when a chance audition for pop band ‘Deuce’ steered Craig off to pop stardom for a few years. He then became the new face of British MTV, hosting the hugely successful show 'Select' and also spent time hosting 'GMTV' (the UK’s version of the Today Show). Then in 1999 a starring role on the award winning show 'Dream Team' beckoned where Craig played villain Alex Wilkinson.
Craig’s next move was a big one, to Hollywood in fact, where he has starred in a plethora of hit shows including: Melrose Place, 10 Things I Hate About You, NCIS, Lost, What About Brian andFringe to name but a few.
