David Crellin was born in South Yorkshire in 1961. He first became interested in acting when a former girlfriend got him involved with the Crucible Youth Theatre in Sheffield under the guidance of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Michael Boyd, and he went on to attend the Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama in London. However, upon graduation he returned to the North of England, albeit on the other side of the Pennines, moving to Bolton in Lancashire with his wife and children, with a professional base in Manchester. In the mid-2000s, however, he was best known for playing a villain from his native Yorkshire in an ongoing plot in the soap opera 'Emmerdale'.
