Keanu Taylor made his first appearance on 15 June 2017. He is portrayed by Danny Walters.
Born 23rd April 1999, Keanu has three brothers and two sisters. He comes from not a very wealthy family and he is very protective over his family. When Keanu was a baby, Karen dumped his father Shane, he then tried to kill Karen with a kitchen knife. Shane was arrested and pleaded guilty and went to prison for 12 years. After Shane was released, he committed another crime but is back in prison.
His family is used to the electricity cutting off, bailiffs coming and taking their electronics, loan sharks demanding money. As Keanu is the man of the house, he has to stay strong for his family, this includes paying for the electrics and helping his family whilst they’re in drama.
After Keanu finishes his mechanics apprenticeship, he tries to get several jobs but he isn't accepted to any. As the Taylors are poor, Keanu is desperate for a job and secures one as a nude model, which pays really well but he has to stand naked in front of people, who would then draw him. He doesn’t tell anybody about this because he’s embarrassed. A girl he likes, Ingrid Solberg, is one of the artists and is shocked to see Keanu doing this. However, she agrees to keep it a secret and they continue to like each other. Keanu then gets another job as an escort - he gets a lot of money out of this. On New Year’s Day 2018, Keanu, Mick, Phil and Billy are hired by Aidan as they do a big job, where they will get £10,000 each and goods to go with it. This includes Mick and Keanu having to to divert a van with goods and money to the Arches, where the boys will threaten them with fake guns. This backfired when Mick’s son, Lee’s old mate, Callum, shoots Mick. Keanu threatens Callum but Aidan tells him to let it go. Billy hides the money and goods in a coffin but gets the coffins mixed up, which leaves the boys to go and unbury the coffin with goods and money. Keanu and Billy are mostly left to do most of the work. The money isn’t in the coffin and it is seen that Ben Mitchell actually stole the money from the boys.
