Lieutenant Malcolm Reed returns to FedCon in Bonn! Dominic Keating, who played this role in Star Trek: Enterprise, was born in Leicester, England. His first stage experiences caused his teacher to call him a “bright, young hope”. He surprisingly graduated on University College in London first in history – not in acting. Keating stuck with his preference towards acting and took part in some university productions, still hoping to play at a professional theatre.
Keating played in the movie Jungle 2 Jungle with Tim Allen and Martin Short. He also played in the Oscar awarded movie Almost Famous and acted with Raquel Welch in What I did for Love. The actor got his first American role in the movie The Hollywood Sign side by side with Rod Steiger, Burt Reynolds and Tom Berenger.
He got his first leading role on TV in the series Glory Days, another main role in Desmond’s, a recurring role in The Immortals and G vs E, plus some guest roles in Special Unit 2, Buffy and Poltergeist: The Legacy. Dominic Keating played the tactical Officer Malcolm Reed in Star Trek: Enterprise from 2001 to 2005, a role, which made him rather famous. In addition to this role, he has also spoken in the documentary film Trekkies, produced by Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar – Star Trek: The Next Generation). Keating has also appeared on series such as Sons of Anarchy, lends his voice to characters in the World of Warcraft video game series, and joins fellow Star Trek: Enterprise cast member Connor Trinneer on The Shuttlepod Show (2022) to talk with well-known personalities from the series and film industries.
Among others, Dominic was seen on stage in the university productions Life Class and Rosencranz and Guildenstern are Dead. He was also awarded for best acting role as Cosmo in The Pitchfork Disney at Bush Theatre in London. Furthermore, he was on stage with The Christian Brothers in King’s Cross as well as in The Best Years of your Life in the Man in the Moon Theatre in Chelsea. Dominic Keating got the Mobile Prize for his performance in Amongst Barbarians at Royal Exchange in Manchester. He also had appearances in Screamers on Edinburgh Playhouse Festival and in Alfie on Tiffany Theatre in Los Angeles.
