Colman Domingo is an American actor, playwright and director best known for his role as Victor Strand, a smart and sophisticated man with a mysterious past, on the AMC horror series Fear the Walking Dead.

He also appears in Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation, opposite Armie Hammer, Gabrielle Union and Nate Parker. The film is a biopic of slave-turned-revolutionary Nat Turner and premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

As an Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk, and Drama League Award-nominated actor and OBIE and Lucille Lortel Award-winner, Domingo has solidified himself as a Broadway veteran. His play Dot premiered at the Humana Festival in Louisville in 2015 and premiered Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theater in 2016, directed by Tony Award-winner Susan Stroman.

Domingo's theatre career took off when he starred in the critically-acclaimed rock musical Passing Strange. The off-Broadway ensemble cast received an OBIE Award in 2008, and Domingo reprised his roles in the film version of Passing Strange, directed by Spike Lee, in 2009.

He made his British and Australian debuts with his self-penned solo play, A Boy and His Soul. This production originated at New York City's Vineyard Theater and won him GLAAD and Lucille Lortel awards in 2010.

In 2010, Domingo starred as Billy Flynn in Chicago, the longest revival on Broadway, and in the award-winning The Scottsboro Boys, a role which he originated on and off Broadway.

He was nominated for a Tony Award, Olivier Award, and a Fred Astaire Award for his role in The Scottsboro Boys. Additional theatre credits include the Off-Broadway revival of Blood Knot and Wild With Happy.

As a director, Domingo staged the Off-Broadway Alliance Award-winning production of A Band of Angels and helmed August Wilson's Seven Guitars for the Actors Theater of Louisville in the fall of 2015. He also directed the critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway productions of Exit Cuckoo and Single Black Female.

Additional film credits include Ava DuVernay's Selma and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, Lee Daniels' The Butler, Joe Roth's Freedomland and Clint Eastwood's True Crime, Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Ana and Red Hook Summer, and the first-ever screen adaptation of a Ralph Ellison story, King of the Bingo Game, among others.

His TV credits include The Knick, Lucifer, Law & Order, The Big Gay Sketch Show and Nash Bridges.

Domingo is on the Board of the Directors of the Vineyard Theater in New York City. He is also on faculty at the National Theater Institute (Eugene O'Neill Theater Center) and guest-lectured and mentored in many colleges and universities around the USA.
