About Connor Smyth

Northern Ireland's Connor Smyth was crowned as the winner of the latest season of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

The 30-year-old, who is an Irish dancer and has performed on West End and Broadway, has shown what he's been able to mentally and physically endure in some of the harshest environments.

He has recently spoken out about how being ridiculed for years as a professional Irish dancer played a huge part in his success on the TV programme "My cause was to try to show any young upcoming male dancers, or anyone who does a sport or discipline that isn’t perceived as ‘manly’, that you can be strong, tough and overcome obstacles that are put in front of you. That it doesn't matter what other people think, if you have a passion then pursue that passion with all your strength and heart.”

After completing his degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice at Ulster University, he went on to join Rhythm of the Dance where he toured for two years in the lead role.

In 2012, Connor Smyth joined Michael Flatley’s Feet of Flames in a tour of Taiwan, and he achieved a lifelong dream when he joined the cast of Lord of the Dance a year later.
