Dominic Gerard Francis Eagleton West (born 15 October 1969) is an English actor, musician, and director. He is best known for portraying Detective Jimmy McNulty in the HBO drama series The Wire, and won the award for Leading Actor at the 2012 British Academy Television Awards for portraying serial killer Fred West in Appropriate Adult.
He currently stars as Noah Solloway on the Showtime drama series, The Affair, for which he has received a Golden Globe nomination.
In 1998, West and his then-girlfriend Polly Astor (the daughter of Michael Astor) had a daughter named Martha. The two broke up when Martha was three.
West later rekindled his romance with landscape designer Catherine FitzGerald whom he had dated at university. West and FitzGerald married in Glin, County Limerick, Ireland, on 26 June 2010. They have four children together: Dora, Senan, Francis and Rose. FitzGerald is an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, the daughter of Desmond FitzGerald, 29th Knight of Glin, and was formerly married to Edward Lambton, 7th Earl of Durham.
West has become a supporter of care charity Helen's Trust in response to their assistance to his mother prior to her death.
West was the leader of Team Canada/Australia for Walking With The Wounded, a fundraising event for wounded soldiers. He trekked to the South Pole against Team UK (led by Prince Harry) and Team America (led by Alexander Skarsgård). A few days into the trek, it was decided that the competition part of the race would be cancelled due to hazardous terrain and weather conditions, so the teams combined forces and continued. Alongside Harry, Skarsgård, and several wounded soldiers, West successfully made it to the South Pole on 13 December 2013.
In August 2014, West was one of 200 public figures who were signatories to a letter to The Guardian opposing Scottish independence in the run-up to September's referendum on that issue.
