Keith R. Beck grew up in Smithfield RI, and is now based in both RI and NYC. Keith's dreams of being an actor began at age 11, and when he was cast as Dick Wilkins in a production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at the Stadium Theatre in Woonsocket, RI at age 13, he was hooked! He went on to be cast in more productions at the theatre including Annie Jr., The Wizard of Oz, and Tarzan.
At the age of 15, Keith began his transition to acting on screen with two student films for Boston University, one of which was awarded 2nd place and 3rd place in the 2020 Boston and Los Angeles Redstone Film Festivals, respectively. He recently has worked on Amazon Studios’ The Tender Bar, Showtime’s Dexter: New Blood, and an episode of Fox Nations’ American Dynasty (post production). Keith has also written and directed his own short film When Natasha Left, which can be found on IMDB.
To help him in his craft, Keith has taken various acting classes with Boston Casting Inc. and Trinity Repertory in Providence, RI training in scene study, audition techniques, diction and dialect, and advanced improvisation. He has also received coaching from actor Steve Blackwood (Days of Our Lives) and notable acting coach Dennis Lavalle. Keith continues his training in the BFA Acting for Film, Television, Voiceover, and Commercial program at Pace University.
Keith’s goal as an actor is to tell stories that can inspire and make people feel understood, much like how films Stand By Me, Rocky, and Unbroken have impacted him. Outside of acting, Keith enjoys running, weightlifting, martial arts, piano, guitar, and singing.
