|Birthday||June 7th, 1977|
Giles Alderson is a London-based actor who played Steve in the KateModern video series. He first heard about the series from producer Pete Gibbons, who later introduced him to Gavin Rowe, the director, and Miles Beckett, the producer. They asked him to audition, and decided to cast him as Steve.
Growing up in Harrogate, Yorkshire, Giles played soccer for many years. He was extremely good at it, and ended up getting scouted as a goalkeeper for Bradford City, with whom he played until he dislocated his shoulder playing basketball and lost his confidence. Instead of kicking him out, the school asked him if there was anything else he was good at. After some deliberation, Giles informed them that he was in the school play, leading them to enter him in a performing arts class. Although he did not have any major roles at that time, at the end of the course, Giles had the opportunity to stage his own production. He chose to put on a production of "Bouncers" and realized just how much he loved acting. He decided to pursue it professionally and went on to university, followed by Drama Studio London, to achieve that goal.
Aside from KateModern, Giles has appeared in such films as I Want Candy (trailer), Night Junkies (trailer), A Dying Breed (trailer), Diagnosis: Superstar (trailer), Three Minute Moments (trailer), Anaphylaxis, and L.V.J (trailer). His past TV appearances include "Tricks", "Blackpool", and "50 Ways". His past theater appearances include roles in High Society, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Taming of the Shrew, and The Rocky Horror Show.
Besides acting, Giles also works as a club DJ and has performed in some top London night spots. Additionally, he and his girlfriend Katia recently launched a website called ShakeTheFace, where people can submit goofy photos of themselves literally shaking their faces.
