After developing a passion for acting at school in a series of musicals, Lyle attended the University of Nottingham where he studied Politics for 3 years. During his time at University, Lyle was a noteworthy member of the Nottingham New Theatre, at the time the UK’s prominent student-run theatre society. It was here that he developed an interest in Shakespeare, performing the roles of Francis Flute and Lucius Andronicus among others, before being invited to train for 4 days with the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon the year after leaving Nottingham.
Lyle later attended the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, earning roles in Taming of the Shrew and a lead in the school’s production of Mary Stuart. He has just finished his latest tour with the Young Shakespeare Company, with whom his most recent role was Oberon in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, having previously played Hamlet and Mercutio with the company. A keen guitarist and singer, Lyle also continues to work on his songwriting, and regularly performs at open mic events in London and beyond.
