Mark Rhino Smith (born Mark Smith) is an English actor and bodybuilder best known for his portrayal of Rhino in Gladiators and Gladiators: The Ashes.


Smith was born as Mark Smith in London, England, U.K. He is of Jamaican, Cherokee Indian, Ghanian, Caucasian, and Chinese descent. As an adult, he first became a bodybuilder and gained fame in the profession, winning the Junior British Championships and London Mens Heavyweights. His aggressive style earned him his current nickname, Rhino, which later became the name of the character he portrayed in Gladiators, his first acting role. He and the character both became notable, and he reprised his role for a few episodes in Gladiators: The Ashes. Smith eventually took the name of Rhino as his middle name.

Smith went on to appear in other films and TV dramas. His film credits include Batman Begins, Argo, and Creed. He also provided the voice of a rhino named Officer McHorn in the Walt Disney Pictures-produced animated film Zootopia. His TV credits include a recurring role on The Last Ship and guest-star roles in Blue, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Criminal Minds. Smith frequently appeared in BBC-produced TV shows, including Robin Hood, EastEnders, and Synchronicity. In his personal life, he was married at least twice, with both marriages ending in divorce.
