Dominic Pace (born September 21, 1975) is an American actor who portrayed a bounty hunter in the first and third chapters of The Mandalorian. His role was uncredited.

Pace's makeup as the bounty hunter character was designed and applied by makeup artist Brian Sipe, who used the name "Gekko" for the character.[1] Pace said he was able to select his own weapon during production and chose a large, unique heavy blaster.[2] He views his character as ruthless, unapologetic, imposing, and intense.[3]

Pace was accepted as an honorary member of the fan organizations the 501st Legion[4] and the Rebel Legion.[5] The mayor of Sioux City, Iowa officially named July 18, 2020 as Gekko the Bounty Hunter aka Dominic Pace Day.[6] On July 26, 2020, Pace was given a key to the city in Cleveland, Tennessee.[7]

Pace is a lifelong Star Wars fan and described his time on set and in costume as one of the coolest experiences of his lifetime.[8]
