Reece Ritchie (born 23 July 1986) is an English actor.
Ritchie was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk. He has described himself as a "mix", as his father is from Durban, South Africa and his mother is English. His paternal grandparents left South Africa for England when his father was only a year old because of apartheid in South Africa. Ritchie is the middle of three children. His younger sister is singer-songwriter Ria Ritchie. He worked with the National Youth Theatre as a teenager.
After being spotted by a casting director during one of his monologue performances at the Soho Theatre in London, Ritchie was suggested for a role in director Roland Emmerich's 2008 epic 10,000 BC, in which he played the role of Moha.
