 Jimmi Kilduff was born on April 1, 1983 at 4:03 a.m. in Overlook Hospital in Summit New Jersey. He had a real head start on a life in theatre with such a birthday, and though musicals were part of even his earliest life (his mother remains a devoted Rogers and Hammerstein and Cole Porter fan to this day), he did not become active in theater until his freshman year of high school. He was slated to assist with lighting design on To Kill A Mocking Bird, the fall play at Newark Academy, when he inadvertently stepped into the auditions. The director asked him to read for the role of Jem, and Jimmi has been acting ever since. After high school, he attended NYU's Tisch School for the Arts. Along the way Jimmi has performed in numerous shows, reviews and competitions, even winning the prestigious Donna Reed National Scholarship for Musical Theatre in 2001 and the National Association of Teaching Singers competition for all of NYC in 2002. Some of his favorite roles include Henrik in A Little Night Music, for which he won a RECT award, the Baker in Into the Woods, Billy Bigelow in Carousel, the Emcee in Cabaret and Malvolio in Twelfth Night. He now spends his time balancing both acting and a photographic career. Specializing in headshot and fashion photography, view his work at http://web.mac.com/j.k.photo. A college graduate and member of Equity since 2005, Jimmi originated the role of Matthew Shepard in a staged reading of Matthew Passion during his sophomore year of college.  Jimmi would like to thank the three amazing women who are responsible for all he is today: his grandmother Constance, his aunt Dorothy and especially his mother, whose selfless love and support truly make his life worth living.
