Julian O’Byrne

Class of 2022


Julian O’Byrne was born and raised in San Rafael, California to a family that fostered a love of music, the performing arts, and the Northern California mountains. After spending much of his childhood as an athlete, Julian shifted his focus to acting and performance in his early teenage years. After his first professional experience performing in Landmark Musical Theatre’s The Roar of the Greasepaint, The Smell of the Crowd in San Francisco, Julian began his training at Carnegie Mellon. Aside from acting, he loves folk music, athletics, and hiking, and has extensive experience working as a camp counselor in Yosemite National Park. He is incredibly grateful for the training he received at Carnegie Mellon and to have worked alongside such talented artists and wonderful people. Julian is excited to continue his career in acting and follow his passion for storytelling, and thanks his family, professors, and other mentors who have helped him along the way.
