Paul Ritter is a British stage and screen actor.

Ritter has had roles in Quantum of Solace, Son of Rambow, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Nowhere Boy, The Eagle and the 2007 television serial Instinct.

He has also appeared in the comedy drama Pulling, the ITV1 thriller Vera, and the Channel 4 comedy Friday Night Dinner.

He played Pistol in Henry IV, Part II in BBC 2's cycle of Shakespeare's history plays, The Hollow Crown. The Telegraph described Ritter as 'an actor who is surely destined for greatness very soon. His Pistol conveyed perfectly the shock of a man who reluctantly had left behind the rowdy cheer of Eastcheap, and found himself in middle age contemplating the melancholy of a medieval autumn.' Ritter portrayed the late comic actor Eric Sykes in Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This.

Ritter was nominated for a Tony Award in 2009 for his role in The Norman Conquests. In 2012, he appeared in the stage version of Mark Haddon's novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the National Theatre (as Ed Boone, the father of the main character Christopher) and in 2013 as John Major in the premiere of Peter Morgan's The Audience. In 2015, he played a lead role in BBC1's Cold War serialised spy drama, The Game.

James Bond is driving from Lake Garda to Siena, Italy, with the captured Mr. White in the boot of his car. After evading pursuers, Bond and M interrogate White regarding his organization, Quantum. M's bodyguard Craig Mitchell, a double agent, attacks M, enabling White to escape. Bond chases Mitchell and kills him. Bond and M return to London and search Mitchell's flat, discovering through tagged banknotes that Mitchell had a contact in Haiti. Bond tracks the contact, Edmund Slate, and learns that Slate is a hitman sent to kill Camille Montes at the behest of her lover, environmentalist Dominic Greene. While observing her subsequent meeting with Greene, Bond learns that Greene is helping an exiled Bolivian General, Medrano—who murdered Camille's family—to overthrow his government and become the new president in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of desert.
