Dominic Keating

Born in Leicester, England, Dominic Keating's early stage performances led his instructors to single him out as a bright, young hope. Nevertheless, his major studies at the University College in London earned him a B.A. with honors in history, not theatre arts. But Keating kept the acting flame alive through the academic years, participating in several University productions and pondering an eventual leap into the professional theatre.

Keating starred in the feature film Jungle 2 Jungle opposite Tim Allen and Martin Short. He also appeared in the Oscar-nominated feature film Almost Famous and starred with Raquel Welch in What I Did for Love. In the soon-to-be-released The Hollywood Sign, he plays his first American role opposite Rod Steiger, Burt Reynolds and Tom Berenger.

His television credits include a lead role on Glory Days, a series regular for five years on Desmond's, recurring roles in The Immortals and G vs E, plus guest appearances on Special Unit 2, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Poltergeist: The Legacy.

His stage credits include University productions of Life Class and Rosencranz and Guildenstern are Dead. He won an award for Best Actor on the Fringe for his role as Cosmo in The Pitchfork Disney at the Bush Theatre in London. He also starred in the one-man play The Christian Brothers in King's Cross and in The Best Years of Your Life at the Man in the Moon Theatre in Chelsea. He was awarded the Mobile Prize for his performance in Amongst Barbarians at the Royal Exchange in Manchester, which then transferred to the Hampstead Theatre in London. Other performances include roles in Screamers at the Edinburgh Playhouse Festival and in Alfie at the Tiffany Theatre in Los Angeles.

Keating currently resides in Los Angeles and enjoys golfing, swimming, music, boogie boarding, reading and traveling.
