Kayne worked for a number of years as a “mercenary of the entertainment industry” accepting any work that came his way, including jobs as a stage combat performer, a film/TV set runner, a film/TV double, a dancer, an actor and others. He was considered for the role of Barnabas the Barmy in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Barnabas would have appeared in the tapestry opposite the Room of Requirement depicting an unsuccessful attempt at teaching trolls ballet, but the scenes were never filmed and the moving tapestry containing Barnabas the Barmy does not appear in the final movie.
Kayne is still active as a performer and is best known for playing a young Gene Hunt in British BBC TV series Ashes to Ashes. He also taught groups of new Death Eater performers for special events at the The Making of Harry Potter studio tour in Leavesden and for other special events.
