Paul Blackthorne (March 5, 1969) is a British actor on film, television and radio. He is also a photographer.

Blackthorne broke into acting via television commercials in England. His breakthrough commercial in the UK came in the Grim Reaper commercial for Virgin Atlantic, which was hugely successful. Numerous radio commercials followed.

Blackthorne's first silver screen success was as Captain Andrew Russell in the Oscar-nominated Bollywood movie, "Lagaan". He spent six months learning Hindi for the role. Shortly after filming finished in India, the town where filming took place was levelled by an earthquake, including the apartment building in which the cast of "Lagaan" was staying. To assist the earthquake victims, Blackthorne exhibited his photography in a special show in London.

He also starred in "Mindcrime" and the festival-winning indie feature length film, "Four Corners of Suburbia", winner of both the Crossroads Film Festival in Best Narrative Feature (2006) and in the category of Best Composer at the Avignon Film Festival, Avignon, France (2006).

Additional indie film credits include Bret Easton Ellis's "This is Not an Exit", and a starring role in the British movie, "The Truth Game". Paul's most recent indie film role is "Jonas Exiler" in "Special", with Michael Rapaport, which is scheduled for a 2007 release in the US.

In 2002, Blackthorne portrayed British import Doctor Matt Slingerland of "Presidio Med" and made notable appearances as Guy Morton in the British television series "Holby City", Liam MacGregor in "Peak Practice", Doctor Jeremy Lawson in NBC's "ER" and biological terrorist Stephen Saunders on "24". He also made appearances on "Medium" in two roles (one uncredited as Henry Stoller, Junior), "Deadwood", and an episode of "Monk".

In the Sci Fi Channel's series for 2007, "The Dresden Files", Blackthorne portrayed the lead character, professional wizard Harry Dresden. Since the show's cancellation he has joined the cast of the new NBC series "Lipstick Jungle".

Blackthorne is 6'3" tall. He is also known to be involved with various charities. He had also donated money for the victims of the Gujarat earthquake in India, where his film had been shot.
