Guest Actor Blog: KYLE SECOR

The gods are merciful! They sent us Tim Crouch and this unbelievable experience of a play. Friends who saw it are still reeling from the effect it’s had on them. It had been years since I had been on stage, but, thanks to Tim the underlying reason of why I became an actor was unearthed, and unveiled; the desire to live moment to moment, not-knowing, breath to breath, up on a tight wire, the feeling of the audience right up there with you. My word, what a night! Tim is such a deeply generous, supportive and talented man. So masterful with his art. I’m still hearing those lovely, gentle words he whispered in my ears – “You’re doing just great, Kyle – you’re doing beautifully.” Thank you Tim and the amazing team at the Odyssey, for a dream evening and peak experience.


Kyle Secor performed in AN OAK TREE at The Odyssey Theatre on February 6th.

Kyle was born in the theatrical hotbed of Federal Way, Washington. Fleeing a series of engagements at both community college and dinner theatre’s he ventured to Los Angeles for the promise of equity waiver. In the 80’s and 90’s he appeared in a number of said equity waiver productions. He was then fortunate enough to be in the re-opening season of the Pasadena Playhouse in a production of Look Homeward, Angel, and several productions at LATC including Tony Richardson’s Anthony and Cleopatra. He studied at BADA (British Academy of Dramatic Arts) in Oxford.

Notable television includes seven seasons as Tim Bayliss in Homicide: Life on the Street (where he also directed), City of Angels, Philly, Veronica Mars, and First Gentleman Rod Callaway on Commander In Chief with Geena Davis. Recent guest star appearances include The Deep End, White Collar, Boston Legal and Women’s Murder Club Film: Heart of Dixie, Delusion, The Doctor, City Slickers, Sleeping with the Enemy, Late for Dinner, Drop Zone, Inherit the Wind and A Wrinkle in Time.  He never returned to Federal Way, but currently resides in Los Angeles with his incredible wife, Kari, and two amazing daughters.
