Keir Gilchrist Might Not Be Autistic, but He Is a Fantastic Actor

By

Keir Gilchrist made his debut in the 2004 drama, The Right Way, and his career picked up swiftly afterward. By 2018, he landed roles in blockbusters like a rom-com about a budding love story between two psychiatry patients, It's Kind of a Funny Story, and the horror movie, It Follows. 

However, most viewers will be familiar with the actor from the Netflix series, Atypical. His exceptional performance led some fans to wonder: is Keir Gilchrist autistic like his on-screen character? 

Keir Gilchrist is an incredibly talented actor, an amateur photographer blessed with an eagle eye for the best snaps, and an enthusiastic traveler and adventurer. 

He cites two highly successful economists as his close relatives, David Wilfred and Douglas Peters. He was awarded his first serious recognition as an actor in 2013, when he won the Best Actor category of the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival for his performance in Seasick Sailor. But it's not the facts that we're here for.
