Kicking off 2018 by meeting Skeet Ulrich at his home in Studio City, Los Angeles, is a pleasant way to celebrate the new year. We got to know his family too, including his 16-year-old twins Jakob and Naiia who then joined our photoshoot in the woods.

Life is about connection

Born in 1970 in Virginia, Skeet Ulrich is an outstanding actor of his generation. His career popped off in 1996, when he landed his roles in The Craft and Scream. His success lead him to star from 2006 to 2008 in CBS’s Jericho. In 2016, he got reunited with the small screen as he joined the cast of The CW’s hit show Riverdale as FP Jones, Jughead Jones’s (Cole Sprouse) father. Despite his glory days in the 90’s and his rising popularity, Skeet has always said that he wasn’t interested in fame.

Humanity and honesty are crucial

Counting more than fteen movies throughout his career and thousands of episodes in several tv shows, Skeet Ulrich has been in the industry since 25 years. ‘‘I was drawn to the ability to use metaphor to tell personal truths,’’ he says. With so many years of experience behind him, Skeet got the opportunity to hang out with award-winning lmmakers like James L. Brooks, Ang Lee and Wes Craven, and he feels fortunate to have worked with people he considers as some of the best storytellers in the business. ‘‘Learning from them all has taught me more than I could put into words,’’ Skeet admits.
