Early life and education

Ed hasn’t talked much about his family, as he prefers to keep them away from the media’s attention – he hasn’t talked about having any siblings, which is why he is considered to be an only child.

Ed has been interested in many forms of art since he was very young. He had dreams of becoming an actor and a musician which eventually came true for him – he began taking acting classes when he was around 11 years old. He was somewhat popular during his high school years thanks to his looks, but it’s not known whether he dated any girls during those years of his life.

After he matriculated, he enrolled at the Byam Shaw School of Art, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine art painting.

Career of an actor and a musician

Ed launched his career as a musician first, rather than an actor – his first extended play (EP) entitled “Mind Out/Once Upon a Skrein” was launched in 2004 under the Dented Records record label, and his first album entitled “The Eat Up” was released in 2007, and featured numerous popular rap artists such as Foreign Beggars, Asian Dub Foundation, Plan B, and Doc Brown among others. His next EP was “Pre-Emptive Nostalgia”, in a collaboration with “A State of Mind” music group.
