Bryan Dick (born 10 July 1978 in Denton Holme, Carlisle, England) is an English actor, who has starred in multiple motion pictures, television series, and stage productions in both the United Kingdom and United States.

After studying at Cumbria Institute of the Arts, he trained at 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. Other series included Earthfasts in 1994 alongside Paul Nicholls.

Since LAMDA, he has worked chiefly in television. He started off with a number of small and guest roles, including the younger version of Phil Davis's character, Archie, in the TV series based on the novel White Teeth. His profile was raised by a starring role in the series, Blackpool, in 2004, playing sidekick to David Tennant's police detective. The following year, he was one of the leads in the acclaimed and gritty Simon Curtis series, Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky, based on the novel by Patrick Hamilton, in which he played the idealistic Bob who falls in love with a prostitute.

He has also had several high-profile roles on the big screen, including the role of Joseph Nagle, carpenter's mate, 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).

He was previously in a relationship with actress Loo Brealey, who is best known for playing Roxy Bird in Casualty.

Speaks with a "southern drawl" due to his 12 years in London, but admits, "when I’ve been drinking my Carlisle accent comes out more."
