Jonathan Coyne is an English actor, the middle child of a seamstress and a professional footballer. He is best known for playing Warden Edwin James on Fox's short-lived series, Alcatraz (2012). He also appeared as Dr. Lydgate in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and Once Upon a Time and recurred as George de Mohrenschildt in 11.22.63.


Coyne's earliest performances were in school plays. He played leading roles in two productions: The Judge in Oscar Wilde's Hang of the Gaol and Phaeton in Ovid's Chariot of the Sun. He won rave reviews for his performances in the national press and decided to pursue a career as an actor. He won a place at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and upon his graduation, he received the Hannam Clarke Award.

His first role on TV was on an episode of London's Burning in 1990. His next big role was in a mini-series Gulliver's Travels starring Ted Danson. He appeared in many British TV series over the next few years including guest appearances on EastEnders, Pulling and The Bill. In 2003, he was cast in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. In 2010, he was cast in The Nutcracker in 3D.

His biggest role was as Warden Edwin James on Alcatraz. He was later cast in such films as Would You Rather and London Boulevard. In 2013, he was cast in supporting film roles, as a henchman in Gangster Squad and as the right hand man of John Goodman's character in The Hangover Part III.

In 2018, Coyne appeared in the third season of the AMC television series Preacher, playing the recurring role of Allfather D'Daronique, which required him to wear a fatsuit.
