Ben Chaplin (born 31 July 1970) is an English actor.

Chaplin, one of four children, was born Benedict John Greenwood in London, England, the son of Cynthia, a drama teacher, and Peter Greenwood, an engineer. The surname Chaplin is from Cynthia's maiden name; Chaplin is Jewish from his mother's side. He was raised in Windsor, Berkshire, England and attended PMRF (Princess Margaret Royal Free) School & the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Chaplin first came to public attention for his performance as Matthew Malone in the first series of the sitcom Game On. After departing the series (his character was later recast with Neil Stuke) he co-starred in several movies including The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line, Murder By Numbers, The Touch with Michelle Yeoh and Birthday Girl.
