Dominic Rains is an American actor, best known for his portrayal in independent films such as The Taqwacores (2010) and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014).

Rains was born in Tehran, Iran, moved to London, England as a small child and then to the United States, where he was raised in Dallas, Texas. He is the brother of actor Ethan Rains. Rains began his acting career starring in the well known TV Movie, Saving Jessica Lynch in 2003. He later appeared in 2006 in the popular TV Movie, Flight 93. From 12 July 2007 to 4 October 2007, Rains appeared as Dr. Leo Julian on SOAPnet's General Hospital: Night Shift, a 13-episode prime time spin-off of the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. The character had first been introduced on General Hospital on July 2, 2007. With Rains unavailable for the series' second season in July 2008, his brother Ethan was cast in the role starting 22 July 2008. Following his role on General Hospital he has continued to appear on numerous television series including: 24, Flash Forward, Burn Notice, NCIS, Cane and Anger Management.

In 2010, he gained recognition for his role in the discussion sparking independent film, The Taqwacores, based on a 2004 novel by an American convert to Islam, Michael Mohammed Knight. The New York Times praised his performance as "particularly eye-catching" and NBC reviewed that his portrayal is, "reminiscent of Adrien Brody’s career-launching turn in “Summer of Sam.” Rains is just operating at an entirely higher level as the heart and soul of this film." This role also won him an award for best actor at the Festival de Cine Internacional de Ourense International Film Festival.

Later 2010, he began filming and starring as the lead role in Exxodus Pictures' supernatural thriller, Jinn. The film was released nationwide in April 2014. He plays Shawn Walker, a young automotive designer from Detroit who uncovers an ancient secret that threatens to wipe out his entire family.

Rains's most recent feature film portrayal was as Saeed in Sundance Film Festival favorite, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Highly praised by many critics after its debut, it has been acquired by Kino Lorber for mainstream US Distribution likely set to be released in late 2014. "This stunning and stinging cinematic marvel left us speechless at its premiere," wrote founder Richard Lorber.

Rains recently collaborated on a short film written and directed with his brother Ethan, Still Here, inspired by real life events of their cousin that was fatefully misdiagnosed with cancer. The film is produced by the Rains Brothers in association with EXXODUS PICTURES. In the film Rains plays alongside Shohreh Aghdashloo and Alan Rosenberg.

Besides television and film, Rains is active in the Los Angeles theatre community and is a member of the Los Angeles-based Elephant Theatre Company. He has appeared on stage with the Elephant’s in the critically acclaimed productions of Desert Sunrise, Block Nine, Love Sick, Baby Doll, Cycles, and The North Plan.

A sophomore majoring in engineering, Yusef (Bobby Naderi) seeks living quarters with fellow Muslims after a year in the godless dorms. He moves—rather improbably, given his conservative nature—into a building inhabited by various punky misfits (it is unclear whether they are also students) wrestling with their cultural and religious identity. Or, as red-mohawked guitarist Jehangir (Dominic Rains) puts it, their "mismatching of disenfranchised subcultures."
