Elliot Knight grew up in the city of Birmingham, UK where he took a keen interest in the arts and drama, soon after, winning awards for his talents, including his school’s standout award for Drama Excellence and an additional Regional Acting title from Birmingham City Council for his leading role performance of Alfred Ill in The Visit. While attending The Manchester School of Theatre, where he lead as “Macbeth” in a string of toured Shakespeare performances, he won his first professional role as the titular hero in Sky 1’s popular adventure series “Sinbad”, beating out hundreds after an extensive worldwide search. Subsequently, he was lauded by Screen International as one of the much anticipated “Stars of Tomorrow” of 2011. After screen testing for leading roles in many TV pilots, Knight made his US network television debut in 2014 in ABC’s hit series “How To Get Away With Murder” and is since being recognised as one of the industry’s most exciting new talents.

Currently, Elliot can be seen on CW’s highly anticipated show LIFE SENTENCE opposite Lucy Hale.
