Three years before debuting the role of Det. James “Jimmy” McNulty on HBO’s The Wire, Dominic West actually appeared as Jerus Jannick in 1999’s Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Jerus was a Palace Guard of the Royal Naboo Security Forces, which served the Royal House of the planet Naboo.
His most recent U.S. TV series is Showtime’s The Affair, in which he played the role of Noah Solloway, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination for best actor. West will be next seen as Prince Charles in seasons 5 and 6 of Netflix’s The Crown and in the film Downton Abbey 2, which is set to be released this December.
