David Bradley (born 17 April 1942) is an English character actor. He has recently become known for playing the caretaker of Hogwarts, Argus Filch, in the Harry Potter film franchise.

David Bradley was born in York, England. He became an actor in 1971 acting at Sir Laurence Olivier's National Theatre. He first appeared on television that year in the successful comedy Nearest and Dearest playing a police officer. He was awarded a Laurence Olivier Award in 1991 for his supporting actor role in King Lear at the Royal National Theatre. He has appeared in the Royal National Theatre's 1997 production of Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, as well as productions of Pinter's The Caretaker at Sheffield Theatres and the Tricycle Theatre in London in 2006/2007.

Bradley starred in the BBC comedy series Wild West playing the character of Jake. He played fictional Labour Member of Parliament Eddie Wells in the 1996 award-winning BBC Two serial Our Friends in the North. In 1998 he appeared in the BBC adaptations of William Makepeace Thackeray's Vanity Fair and Charles Dickens' Our Mutual Friend as the miserly Sir Pitt Crawley and the villainous Rouge Riderhood, respectively. Other television appearances include the 2001 series, The Way We Live Now directed by David Yates, who would work with Bradley five years later on the Harry Potter films.
