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.

Dans des temps anciens, Nhagruul, un sorcier démoniaque, vendit son âme au seigneur démon des Abysses ; le Livre des ténèbres fut fabriqué à partir de son corps, sa peau formant les pages, son sang l'encre et ses os la couverture. À l'aide de ce grimoire, les partisans de Nhagruul semèrent la terreur et la désolation dans le royaume de Karloth, jusqu'à ce qu'ils soient arrêtés par un ordre de chevaliers prêtant allégeance à Pelor, le dieu du soleil.

The drama opens with the disclaimer "Some of the following is based on fact. And some isn't". When Archbishop Fisher of the Church of England refuses her request to allow her and divorced war hero Peter Townsend, an equerry to her sister, to wed in a religious ceremony, and her brother-in-law and confidant Prince Philip advises her she will lose all her material possessions if they engage in a civil union, Margaret ends the relationship and plunges into a hedonistic lifestyle that frequently draws headlines in the press. She finds herself partnered with Tony Armstrong-Jones at a party that dissolves into an evening of sexual shenanigans, and she and the impoverished photographer begin to meet frequently for clandestine encounters in his dingy flat. When their relationship is made public, the two wed in an elaborate ceremony that is admired by those who embrace the monarchy and criticized by politicians who are shocked at the amount of money spent on the occasion while their constituents are struggling to get by on meager wages.

Dylan (Dan Futterman) and Jez (Stuart Townsend) are two orphans who meet in their twenties and vow to achieve their shared childhood dream of living in a stately home. In pursuit of this dream they spend their days living in a disused gas holder, spending as little money as possible and conning the upper classes out of their riches. During one of their biggest cons, their lives are touched by Georgie (Kate Beckinsale), who needs money to save the Down's syndrome foundation that her brother attends. When a con goes wrong, the two find themselves in gaol to be released only after their entire fortune is rendered useless because of a recall of £50 notes. It is down to an elaborate plan involving Dylan, Jez, and (if they can persuade her) Georgie, to break them out of gaol in order to save their dream.
