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" (though was cut out of the final edit) and starred with Raquel Welch in "Folle d'elle." In the "The Hollywood Sign," he played his first American role opposite Rod Steiger, Burt Reynolds and Tom Berenger. He co-stars in mocku-documentay "Certifiably Jonathan", about American comedian Jonathan Winters, in "Beowulf" with Angelina Jolie and in the next chapter of a cult film series: "Species IV". He stars in indie Horror film "Hollywood Kills" as a film director. His most recent outings are "The Ninong" and also Asylum Production's "Sherlock Holmes" opposite Torchwood's Gareth David-Lloyd.
His television credits include a lead role on Star Trek: Enterprise, a series regular for five years on Desmond's, a recurring role in The Immortal, plus guest appearances on G vs E, Special Unit 2, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Poltergeist: The Legacy and Las Vegas among others.
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.
Dominic worked in a drag act called Feelings Mutual in order to get his Equity card.
