Kirstin Murray was educated in Angus, Scotland and studied law at Edinburgh University, during which time she combined her law degree with French language and French law. She then practised as a court lawyer in Edinburgh for 6 years.


Her great passion for acting led her to resign as a lawyer in 2000 to study for a BA in acting at QMUC, Edinburgh. She graduated with distinction in 2004 and as Spotlight Award nominee for the same year.


Since graduating she has had diverse roles in film, television, radio and in theatre.


These have included hospital consultant, Dr Sawyer, in BBC's River City and the creature of Crony Palone in a physical theatre production for Cat In a Cup Theatre Company, where she was able to indulge her passion for music by playing flute.


She has also used her skills in French playing Hélène in an adaptation of Val McDermid’s book, The Distant Echo for BBC Radio 4.


Most recently Kirstin was cast as a criminal lawyer in Ken Loach's film, The Angels' Share.
