Taylor Kitsch

Taylor Kitsch is one of the most interesting young actors out there today. It’s cliche to describe a star as a “regular guy,” however Taylor really is a down-to-earth, humble person.  Many know him for playing Tim Riggins (#33 – “No regrets!”) in NBC’s Friday Night Lights, one of the best acted, written and produced shows on television according to USA Today. He also starred in X-Men (2009) and is working on The Bang Bang Club (2010).   Taylor was born and raised in Kelowna, British Columbia. He grew up playing hockey and had plans to play professionally before a career ending injury. Besides acting, he is also a certified nutritionist and personal trainer. Taylor has come to love Austin, Texas and now calls it home.

Perspective

Taking Risks

Growing up, I was allowed to make mistakes and take risks. Although I’m sure it was hard for my mom to let me go and attempt my goals and dreams at such an early age, it was those experiences –the ups and definitely the downs — that shaped so many of my values and formed the ground work and base I have been able to draw from later. Only by taking risks can you learn your true capabilities and have the foundation to keep growing and developing. I believe that going out and pushing myself the way I did instilled a work ethic that grounds me to this day.
