Rees had a love for theatre from a young age. After attending Sandfields Comprehensive school, he studied at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, from which he graduated in 2010.[1]

He first found television fame on Hollyoaks where he landed the recurring role of Blue, a character which allowed him to explore the darker side of human nature.[2] Further television success awaited on the hit soap Emmerdale, but it was his role in the 2014 critically acclaimed film Pride that gave him international fame.[3] His character, Carl, is pivotal to turning the entire mind frame of a small Welsh town, and in doing so opens doors for two very different communities to come together.[4]

In 2015 he played the role of Calo Caine in FX Network's medieval drama series The Bastard Executioner, written by Kurt Sutter.[5]
