Charlie on "Lost"


Dominic Monaghan is best known for his portrayal of the Hobbit, Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck, in the “Lord of the Rings” Trilogy.


Monaghan can soon be seen in writer-director Rebecca Cook’s dark psychological drama, “Shooting Livien,” starring Jason Behr (“Roswell”), Sarah Wynter (“24”) and Joshua Leonard (“The Blair Witch Project”). Next up for Monaghan is Chris Atkins’ “The Purifiers,” a film about martial arts clubs who have created their own city infrastructure after tiring of government initiatives; and “Spivs,” a heist film opposite Nick Moran of “Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” fame.


Monaghan was born in Berlin and grew up in Manchester, England. He is an active environmentalist and enjoys the outdoors, monkeys, insects and football (U.S. Soccer), particularly Manchester United.


He currently resides in Los Angeles with his pet black widow spider and her babies.
