“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”
-Leanord Cohen

Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Aidan’s passion for theatre began when he was cast in The Citadel Theatre’s Oliver! The show naturally left him hungry for more, and he went on to perform in The Wizard of Oz, and six consecutive productions of A Christmas Carol at The Citadel. Aidan continued acting locally and in school, with such companies as The Plain Jane Theatre Co., Theatre Prospero, and starred in the original production of Emil Sher’s The Book of Ashes. Aidan trained in the Citadels Young Acting Company prior to getting his Honours Bachelor of Music Theatre Performance degree from Sheridan College. In his final year at Sheridan, Aidan won the award for Best Supporting Actor for the role of Wee Jimmy in the premier of My Bonnie Lass, as well as playing Monsieur Firmin in The Phantom of the Opera, and Tyson in Chelsea Sunrise.

An avid improvisor, Aidan performed with Edmonton’s award-winning company Rapidfire Theatre, and taught improv classes for children. He also enjoys cooking, swimming, and an occasional Lord of the Rings marathon.

Fresh out of school, Aidan most recently appeared in his first summer stock production, Buying the Farm in beautiful Kincardine, as well as the off-Sheridan production of The Stars of Mars. He looks forward to further making his mark in this exciting industry.
