biography

Skeet Ulrich, whose birth name is Bryan Ray Trout, was born on January 20, 1970 in Lynchburg, Virginia, USA. He was raised by his mother alongside his older brother Geoff Trout. His mother, Carolyn Elaine Wax, runs her own business – a marketing agency called Sports Management Group. She also comes from the well-known Rudd family; Al Rudd Auto Parts President Alvin Ray Rudd Sr is her father while her brother Ricky Rudd was a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver.

The entertainer got his last name “Ulrich” from DK Ulrich, a NASCAR driver and team owner who his mother married after her marriage to Skeet’s father ended. Although DK Ulrich is the actor’s stepfather, Skeet considers him his father. His mother has since married a third time, to Edward Lewis Wax.

The famous actor got his nickname “Skeet” from his Little League coach, who compared his small stature to Skeeter. Skeet’s small physique could be due to the illness he suffered from in his formative years. He was constantly getting pneumonia, and at the age of 10 the young actor had to undergo open-heart surgery for a defective ventricle.

According to the artist, his biological father kidnapped him and his older brother when he just turned six and kept them for three years. They spent a while in Florida before moving to New York and then Pennsylvania. Eventually, the brothers were reunited with their mother and returned to North Carolina.

Skeet Ulrich attended Northwest Cabarrus High School before studying marine biology at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He later transferred to New York University, where he caught the attention of playwright David Mamet.
