Aaron Edo’s parents came from Nigeria and he was born and grew up in Dublin. His mother travelled to Ireland while pregnant with Aaron in search of a better life and better opportunities for her son. At just three years old, Aaron joined the Gaiety School of Acting where he did a year before moving to the Helen Jordan Stage School. He loved it but had to quit. Good fortune came in the form of a scholarship offer from Helen Jordan. Aaron’s been with her ever since. A rising talent, he’s done a lot of theatre work, commercials and documentaries. He has just finished shooting a new, RTÉ-Commissioned gritty six-part crime drama, Taken Down, from the makers of Love/Hate, directed by David Caffrey and written by Stuart Carolan and Jo Spain.
