Patrick "Paddy" George Considine (born 5 September 1973) is an English actor, director, screenwriter and frequent collaborator with Shane Meadows.

His directorial debut, the short film Dog Altogether, won a number of awards including the 2008 BAFTA Award for Best Short Film.

Considine was born and brought up in Burton upon Trent in Staffordshire. He grew up with his brother and sisters in a council estate in Winshill, a suburb of Burton. He attended High Bank Infants, Joseph Clarke Junior and finally Abbot Beyne Senior School until 1990, when he enrolled to do a National Diploma in Performing Arts. It was at the start of this course, at the Winshill-based Ada Chadwick campus (now demolished) of Burton College, where Considine first met Shane Meadows.
