English actor. He currently stars as Al Capone in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

He is best known for his roles as Tommy in the film Snatch, Andrew "Combo" Gascoigne in This Is England as well as its television sequels, This Is England '86 and This Is England '88, Danny Ferguson in Occupation, Billy Bremner in The Damned United, notorious bank robber Baby Face Nelson in Public Enemies (2009), and Scrum in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Graham was born in the Southdene part of Kirkby, Merseyside, to a paediatric nurse mother and a social worker father. His father was Jamaican and one of his grandmothers was Swedish.

He has portrayed characters from several British regions, including Cockney, a Geordie, a Scouser, and a Scotsman; a 19th-century New York gang member, a Chicago mobster, a Brooklyn mobster, a Texan, and the short-fused British nationalist "Combo", in This is England.

Graham has also appeared in the music video 'Soul Vampire' by Macclesfield-based neo-psychedilic band the Virginmarys, and the music video for "Turn" by Travis.

In 2011, Graham starred in the BBC Christmas show, Lapland, but when the series was announced, called Being Eileen, Graham's role was recast to Dean Andrews
