'Grey's Anatomy's' Kevin McKidd: Actor. Director. Scotch Distillery Worker.
By George Dickie / Zap2It
Dec 11th, 2014
Before becoming an actor, Kevin McKidd worked in a distillery, toiled as a coppersmith and studied engineering at the University of Edinburgh in his native Scotland.
Then the acting bug bit, he became a drama major and went on to a successful career in television, radio, stage and film. He even performed as a member of a Scottish comedy troupe.
Nowadays, in addition to his role as Dr. Owen Hunt in the long-running Thursday ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," he's honing his chops as a director, having helmed by his own count, "eight or nine" episodes of "Grey's," including this season's premiere.
"It's the first time I've been given the season opener to direct, which is a much bigger deal," McKidd, 41, tells Zap2it. "You know, our season opener and the finales of our seasons are usually a much more complicated, bigger event episode, so that was a really great challenge that I really relished, to get the chance to just work on one of those episodes that has slightly more going on and more sort of large-scale stuff. So I loved it. I loved the challenge. I feel really thankful and grateful and honored that they trusted me to direct the season opener. Long may that continue."
As rewarding as the experience has been for him in growing a new skill, it has also helped him as an actor.
"I think even more, I've learned about story structure and what the overall picture is that we're trying to create with the episodes," says McKidd, currently in his sixth season on "Grey's." "I think I realize more quickly what is required of me as an actor when I'm on set just being an actor. So I think it really helped me acting wise as well."
