Bryan Dick (born 1 February 1978[1] in Denton Holme, Carlisle, England)[2] is an English actor, who has starred in multiple films, television series and stage productions in both the United Kingdom and United States.


Dick trained as a dancer at Joy Irvings dance & Wendy Allens School of dance in Carlisle as a child then at Elmhurst Ballet School in Surrey, moving on to Cumbria Institute of the Arts and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), although he had already worked professionally as a child actor. His first major role was in the ITV miniseries The Life and Times of Henry Pratt in 1992. During his student time in Carlisle, he played bass and performed vocals for a band called "Freud's Toys" Although not much success came from this band, they helped to showcase other bands from the region.

Since LAMDA, he has worked chiefly in television, including as the younger version of Phil Davis's character, Archie, in the television series based on the novel White Teeth, a supporting role in the series, Blackpool in 2004, playing sidekick to David Tennant's police detective and one of the leads in the Simon Curtis series 20,000 Streets Under the Sky, based on the trilogy by Patrick Hamilton, in which he played the idealistic Bob who falls in love with a prostitute.

More recent TV roles include Thomas Wyatt in the 2005 The Virgin Queen, which starred Anne-Marie Duff as Elizabeth I, and Prince Turveydrop in the award-winning BBC version of Charles Dickens's Bleak House. He returned to Dickens in 2007 as Freddie Trent in The Old Curiosity Shop and in the same year was cast as Danny in the new ITV comedy drama, Sold.[3] He also appeared in Ordeal By Innocence in the Agatha Christie Agatha Christie's Marple series alongside Geraldine McEwan. In 2008 he appeared as the character Adam in an episode of the same name in the BBC sci-fi series Torchwood. He also appeared in the popular television show Shameless when he took on the role of Jack Wyatt. He also took the roll of Mr Ian Bateley in the BBC drama Excluded.

He has had several roles on the big screen, including the role of Joseph Nagle opposite Russell Crowe in Peter Weir's Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) and the werewolf Rafe in Katja von Garnier's film Blood and Chocolate (2007). Other films include Brothers of the Head (2005) and Colour Me Kubrick (2006).

On stage, he has appeared in Plasticine and Sliding With Suzanne at the Royal Court, in Edward Bond's Lear at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield and School Play at the Soho Theatre. In 2006, he appeared in two plays at the National Theatre in London, as Andrea Sarti in Bertolt Brecht's The Life of Galileo and as Dapper in The Alchemist. In 2007, he played the lead role of Mozart in Peter Shaffer's Amadeus,[4][5] again at the Crucible Theatre, with Gerard Murphy as Salieri.[6]
