As far as major movie franchises go in Hollywood, there are very few that can match the popularity and box office success of Star Wars. The franchise has been in existence for over four decades and has featured hundreds of actors and actresses, playing major and minor roles. One of the actors in a minor role is Erin Kellyman, a British actress who marked her name in the franchise via Solo: A Star Wars Story.
While it is one of the major movies in Erin Kellyman’s filmography, having begun her career in 2015, it is not the only one, as she has appeared in other major productions like Raised by Wolves, Les Misérables, and Don’t Forget The Driver. Being a rising actress who has shown a lot of promise, we take a look at some background and personal details about Erin. Read on to learn more.
Erin Kellyman’s Age
Erin was born on the 17th of October, 1998 in Tamworth Staffordshire as Erin Mae Kellyman. When it comes to her childhood, not a lot is known about the actress but we have been able to learn that she grew up with two siblings while being raised by a single parent, her mother.
We couldn’t possibly say what drew Erin Kellyman to acting but following the completion of her basic education, she enrolled and studied at Nottingham Television Workshop, where she studied and learned the art of acting.
Her first onscreen project came in 2015 when she was cast as Caithy in the show, Raised by Wolves. The show, which was written by Caitlin Moran and Caroline Moran was a sitcom which ran for two seasons with Erin appearing in five episodes between 2015 and 2016.
In 2016, she starred in the pilot episode of The Coopers vs the Rest, playing the character Frankie and she followed up the appearance in the following year with another appearance in a singular episode, as Eleanor in the show, Uncle. In 2018 however, Erin Kellyman got her biggest break yet as an actress when she was cast as Enfys Nest in the Star Wars prequel, Solo: A Star Wars Story. She earned the role after passing three stages of an audition.
Following the exposure and recognition she got from appearing in the movie, Erin returned to Television, where she played Eponine Thenardier in the miniseries, Les Misérables. On the show, she starred alongside notable actors and actresses like David Oyelowo, Lily Collins, and Dominic West.
Other than the two major roles, Erin Kellyman, who is distinctively known for her strongly freckled face and dark red curly hair, has also starred on the show, Don’t Forget the Driver, where she played the character, Kayla. She appeared in six episodes of the dark comedy series.
