Khalid Daley is one of the recent stars of the West End hit musical ‘Hamilton’, playing the leading roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton from 2021-2022. In 2023 he starred as one of the leads in 'Choir Boy' at the Bristol Old Vic, playing JR, a member of a legendary gospel choir at an elite American boys school, from Academy Award winning playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney. Also in 2023 he had a major role playing WWI American war-hero William Henry Johnson in ‘The Great War’, a 2-part docu-drama for the History Channel.
Having trained at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, he has an impressive list of theatre credits which include ‘War Horse’ (UK and International Tour), ‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’ (UK & Ireland Tour) and ‘Dick Whittington’ (National Theatre) as well as playing the leading role of Clyde in ‘Careen - The True History of Bonnie and Clyde’ (Birmingham Repertory Theatre).
He has been recognised by two of the UK’s top talent bursaries, including a nomination for the Carleton Hobbs Radio Bursary as well as winning a Laurence Olivier Bursary during his final year of training.
Originally from Birmingham, he speaks naturally with a Birmingham accent, but can easily neutralise. Currently based in London, he often speaks with a London/MLE accent. He is highly skilled at a general American accent following his roles in Hamilton and his upcoming role in The Great War. He has Caribbean heritage (born in Montserrat) so is also accomplished at speaking with a Caribbean/Jamaican accent.
