Dominic Mafham (born 11 March 1968) is an English actor. He trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and began his career at The Royal Shakespeare Company in 1990. He was with the RSC for four years.
Mafham first came to prominence when he played Nigel Hawthorne's emotionally damaged son Daniel Pascoe in Paula Milne's The Fragile Heart. The drama was screened on Channel 4 in the UK in 1996. It won the 1997 BAFTA award for Nigel Hawthorne as Best Actor, and was nominated for several awards including Best Drama Serial. It was also nominated in the Royal Television Society awards that year.
Mafham played the central character - a high tech assassin in the Swiss Alps stricken with a conscience - in Duncan Jones first film 'Whistle'. The film gathered a cult following after showing at various international film festivals, but finally gained a larger audience when it was included on the DVD of Jones' first full length feature Moon.
Mafham played Mortimer Lightwood in the BBC's 1998 adaptation of Charles Dickens' 'Our Mutual Friend'. Much of the story is seen from Mortimer's perspective. 'Our Mutual Friend' was acclaimed worldwide, and won four BAFTA's including Best Serial. It was nominated for four more as well as awards from the Royal Television Society, the Broadcasting Press Guild and The San Francisco International Film Festival.
Since then, Mafham has appeared in more than 50 productions, including the films The English Patient and Shooting Fish; the ITV medical drama Always and Everyone (A&E); the killer in the first episode of Foyles War; Kingdom (as Stephen Fry's errant brother Simon Kingdom); the BBC World War Two drama Land Girls as Dr Richard Channing; two episodes of Lewis; and The Clinic.
Most recent television work includes the opening episode of the second series of the BBC drama The Musketeers, playing General De Foix, an old Musketeer; an episode of the BBC series New Tricks, playing a Tory minister suspected of murder; and Humans on Channel 4 & AMC playing recurring character Chief Superintendent Shaw.
Most recent feature films include:
Dr Wangel in 'Heart of Lightness', a film directed by Jan Vardøen set in Arctic Norway based on Henrik Ibsen's play 'The Lady From The Sea'.
Sir Horsa in 'Dragonheart, Druid's Curse', the third in Universal Studios 'Dragonheart' series of films, directed by Colin Teague; and Guy 'Bullet Face' Bidwell in 'Sniper: Legacy', a Sony Pictures film with Tom Berenger and Dennis Haysbert, directed by Don Michael Paul. Mafham returns as Bidwell in the next instalment of the Sniper film series due to be released in 2016.
