Bio

Dylan Barnes is a British actor who has played lead roles in multiple award-winning films. Known for his versatility, Dylan is equally adept at playing malevolent villains or inspiring protagonists - often in difficult or challenging roles.

Dylan's passion and talent for acting developed from an early age. Roles in the TV adaptation of Catherine Cookson's The Black Velvet Gown (1991) and the BBC's youth drama 'Byker Grove (1996)' provided the foundation on which he would quickly progress to acting alongside Daniel Craig and Christopher Eccleston in the gritty TV drama 'Our Friends In The North (1996)'.

In 2006 Dylan took the starring role in 'True To Form' under award-winning director Mark J Blackman. Shortly after, he played Officer Reynolds in the innovative BBC drama 'The Cut'.

2014 saw Dylan star in the science fiction feature film 'Scintilla', which was available globally on Netflix; and play a significant role in the provocative short 'The Herd', which played at prestigious film festivals such as Cannes and Sitges, and won many awards around the world.

Recently Dylan has played lead roles in various projects, including 'I Do Harm', 'Madman In A Lifeboat', 'Lilith' and 'Objects To See Further'. He has also played alongside Mel Raidio and Morjana Alaoui in Broken
