Richard Mylan (born 1973) is a Welsh stage and television actor and former dancer.


Mylan was born in Swansea in 1973. There he attended the Birchgrove junior school, where he played rugby and in 1982 won the Swansea heat of the British 'Disco Kids Championships'. At the age of twelve he left Swansea to study dance in London at the Urdang Academy.

His first professional job was in the roller-skating musical Starlight Express (1984) at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London, where he played for about four years, firstly as 'Flat-Top' (he can be heard in the original-cast recording) and afterwards in the bigger role of Electra the Electric Train. He was also in the funk band, 'Puppy Phat', who played at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and elsewhere.

Mylan is best known as Oliver in the television sitcom Coupling (2004), Chris in Grownups (in 2007 and 2009) and Joe Andrews in BBC Wales drama Belonging (in 2006). Other television work has included the role of Danny Flint in Where the Heart Is (in 2005 and 2006), Harry in Wild West (in 2004), Border Cafe, Ben Phillips in Bad Girls (in 2004-5), Leroy Jones in The Bill (in 1998-2001) and Doctors (as Dr Simon Hills in 2004 and as Will Duncan in 2010). He appeared in the 2009 film City Rats. He also made a guest appearance in TV sitcom My Family in 2007, where he played Peter. He played Simon Lowsley, the deputy headteacher in Waterloo Road, until 2014.[1]

Mylan teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff.[1] He is engaged to makeup artist Tammie Dineen.[2][3]
