Many successful artists in the entertainment industry did not start out as entertainers, some were already established in other careers before their artistic talents were recognized. Skeet Ulrich, a famous actor and director, is one of such people. Skeet was already in college studying Marine Biology before he was singled out by playwright David Mamet.

Since then, the actor has made appearances in several movies and television series and also did his bit as a director in the entertainment industry. Some of his movies and series include Scream where he portrayed the character of Bill Loomis, The Craft which cast him as Chris Hooker, Miracles where he played the role of Paul Callan. He also took up the role of Johnston Jacob “Jake” Green, Jr. in Jericho and was part of the Law & Order franchise where he played the character of L.A.P.D. Detective Rex Winters. Skeet is currently on Riverdale playing FP Jones.

Biography

Skeet Ulrich whose birth name is Bryan Ray Trout was born on the 20th of January 1970 in Lynchburg, Virginia, United States. He was brought up by his mother alongside his older brother, Geoff Trout. His mother, Carolyn Elaine Wax, manages her own business – a marketing agency called Sports Management Group. She also comes from the well-known Rudd family; the president of Al Rudd Auto Parts, Alvin Ray Rudd Sr is her dad while her brother Ricky Rudd was a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver.

The entertainer gained his last name ‘Ulrich’ from D. K. Ulrich, a NASCAR driver and team owner whom his mum married after the end of her marriage to Skeet’s dad. Though D. K. Ulrich is the actor’s stepfather, Skeet considers him as his father. His mother has since gone on to a third marriage with Edward Lewis Wax.

The famed actor gained his nickname ‘Skeet’ from his Little League coach who likened his small stature to Skeeter. Skeet’s small frame may have been as a result of the ill health he suffered during his formative years. He constantly went through bouts of Pneumonia and at the age of 10, the young actor had to go through an open-heart surgery as a result of a defective ventricle.

According to the artist, his biological dad abducted both him and his older brother when he just turned six and kept them for three years. They spent a while in Florida before moving to New York and then to Pennsylvania. Eventually, the brothers were reunited with their mum and returned to North Carolina.

Skeet Ulrich attended Northwest Cabarrus High School before proceeding to study Marine Biology at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He later joined New York University, where he caught the attention of Playwright David Mamet.
