Jeremy Crawford- Biography
Jeremy Crawford is a cast member of Netflix’s “The Witcher” TV series, which premiered in 2019. Crawford was interested in joining the cast of the project as soon as it was revealed in 2017.

What is the Net Worth of Jeremy Crawford? Salary, Earnings
As of 2022, Jeremy’s net worth is believed to be more than $2.5 million. While his appearance in the series “The Witcher” has surely boosted his bank account, his major source of income remains the theatre performances in which he has participated from his early undergraduate years.
Jeremy Crawford- Birth, Age, Ethnicity, Siblings
Jeremy Crawford was born in Fairmont, West Virginia, to an Irish and Scottish family – while the exact date of his birth is unknown. Having spent his youth with his parents, he received a lot of encouragement from his mother, who urged him to become an actor. He had an early interest in sports such as soccer and basketball, albeit he preferred to watch the latter due to his small stature.
Jeremy has moved a lot in his adult life, living in Scotland and the Czech Republic until becoming a Canadian Permanent Resident in 2016.
Jeremy enrolled in Fairmont State University after graduating from his local high school in West Virginia. After graduation, he traveled to Scotland to study at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) in Glasgow, where he earned an MA in Classical and Contemporary Acting. Simultaneously, he studied at Shakespeare’s Globe Stage in London, traveling from town to town and landing his first parts in theatre shows.
Jeremy Crawford- Relationship, Married Life
When Jeremy was working in European theaters, he met his future wife Janine. The couple dated for several years before marrying on June 4, 2016. Janine always joins her husband on business excursions, encouraging him and assisting him in learning the lines of his roles. They also enjoy traveling throughout the world during their vacations. When they’re bored, Janine braids Jeremy’s beard, and he posts his looks on Instagram.
Jeremy Crawford- Professional Career
Jeremy began working at the Shakespearean Globe Theatre shortly after graduating, playing Leontes in selected passages of Trevor Rawlins’ production of “The Winter’s Tale”; he was also cast in the title role of “King Lear” in a Shakespeare in the City production in Glasgow. Jeremy starred in another Scottish play, “The Fever Dream: Southside,” which received multiple accolades, including Best Playwright (Douglas Maxwell) and successfully toured Glasgow, Edinburgh, and London.
He began his long-term relationship with Czech theaters in 2010 when he appeared as Oscar in the musical “Desire,” which was initially Czech but had its English language version brought to the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, where it was a huge hit.
Jeremy also played the Good Angel in the Blood, Love, and Rhetoric Theatre’s production of “Doctor Faustus” (Prague, Czech Republic).
Recent theatrical productions
After a successful run in Europe, Jeremy returned to the United States to play Little John in The American Repertory Theater’s production of “The Heart of Robin Hood,” directed by Gisli Orn Gardarsson. Jeremy won the Broadway World Phoenix award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical in 2014 for his work as Smee in “Peter Pan” at the Arizona Broadway Theater. He also got the role of Mortimer in West Virginia Public Theatre’s production of “The Fantasticks,” as well as performing in another production of this theatre, “Happy Days: A New Musical,” as Jumpy Malachi. Jeremy played Dougal in Vintage Theatre Co.’s “To Kill A Kelpie.”
As an accomplished aerialist, he demonstrated his abilities on rope and silks by portraying Iago in the West Virginia Public Theatre’s production of “Disney’s Aladdin.” He works as an actor in Toronto, Canada, as of 2020, and is a member of ACTRA (The Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television, and Radio Artists) and Canadian Actors’ Equity Association (CAEA), as well as AEA (The Actors’ Equity Association) in New York, USA.
Appearances on television and in films
Jeremy rose to prominence after making his television debut as Mick in a Skittles TV commercial directed by Jakob Marky. He later appeared in short films such as “Strings Attached,” “Oscar,” and “The Carer,” whose director, Neil Hartop, received Best Director at the Edinburgh 48hour Film Festival in 2010.
From 2015 to 2017, Jeremy portrayed Scuzz in the “Man Seeking Woman” series, then won a minor role as Ice Cream Vendor in “Anne with an E” (2017 – 2019), then played Ringmaster in “Titans,” appearing in Season 1 of the Netflix drama.
“The Witcher’s” Yarpen Zigrin
Jeremy first became aware of the project in 2017, when he posted many images on his Instagram account expressing his desire to be cast. As a fan of “The Witcher” video game series, Jeremy thought he was the best choice to play the character of Sheldon Skaggs, who, according to the plot of the video games (not the book), was one of the main officers in the Mahakam Volunteer Army, and, in fact, a dwarf, which suited Jeremy very well due to his height of 4ft 10ins.
He even launched an ‘independent campaign’ on Instagram to get himself cast. However, because the storyline was centered on the plot of the book series rather than the video games, he was overlooked by Netflix, and the TV series did not include him. Fortunately, the character of another dwarf, Yarpen Zigrin, occurs in the stories that served as the basis for the first season of the Netflix show, so Jeremy was invited to play this flamboyant dragon-hunter with a great sense of humor. He appeared in the episode “Rare Species,” in which Yarpen and his troop of reavers joined in the hunt for the dragon’s treasures. The character of Yarpen Zigrin exists in many different Witcher storylines, so we can expect to see Jeremy on the screen again in the upcoming seasons of the show.
Hobbies, favorite items, and fascinating facts
Jeremy is a huge Star Wars fan, and he just visited the Museum of Oddities, also known as Odditorium in Cavendish, where he was able to handle Luke Skywalker’s authentic lightsaber from “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” (1980).
For seven years, Jeremy worked as a radio disc jockey. He participates in a variety of activities, including aerials (silks and rope), wrestling, basic gymnastics, soccer, and others. He also enjoys salsa dancing classes with his wife. In 2016, he ran as a satellite runner for Canada in the Fields of Dreams Uganda charity marathon. Jeremy is fluent in a number of dialects, including Irish, Scottish, and British RP (Received Pronunciation). He’s also done some puppetry and has stage combat experience. Jeremy is also a theatre instructor.
Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones” and Aquaman in the namesake film, is one of his favorite performers. Arthur’s Seat mountain near Edinburgh, Scotland, is one of his favorite spots in the world.
