Born in London, England, Keir Gilchrist moved with his family to Boston and then New York City before settling in Toronto. He started taking drama classes at a very young age; it was at the encouragement of a Toronto drama teacher, who arranged a meeting with her agent, that he first began acting professionally.

Keir has worked in TV, feature films and in theater, including the starring role of Jamie at age 12 in a play entitled Number One and Jamie at Toronto's Theatre for Young People.

On television, Keir has made guest appearances on Toronto-filmed series such as Doc, starring Billy Ray Cyrus; Queer as Folk; 1-800-Missing; ReGenesis; Life with Derek and a memorable guest-starring arc on The Listener.

In Los Angeles, he played a recurring role as Josh McKellar on the TV series The Winner, starring opposite Rob Corddry before being cast in the critically acclaimed and award-winning television series United States of Tara in 2009, opposite Toni Collette and John Corbett. The show will begin airing its third season in 2011.
