However, it’s known that he joined the cast of Vanessa Claire Stewart’s production of the “Deadly” musical, along with Cj Merriman, Brittney S. Wheeler and Erica Hanrahan-Ball; Keith was cast in the role of the first documented serial killer HH Holmes, as the musical tells the story of the investigation of his murders and the stories of his victims.

Personal life

Keith is very secretive when it comes to his private life. He shares a lot of photos with his female friends, and it’s quite hard to understand whether they are just that, or dating. However, he posted several photos with his female friend Keely, and the photos look very much like pictures from a romantic vacation, but neither Keith nor Keely ever confirmed their relationship. Keith was also rumored to be dating Katy O’Brian, his colleague from “Z Nation” in which she plays George, but Katy has never hidden her sexuality, admitting that she’s lesbian, so they’re obviously not a couple.
