Rankin was born Richard Harris in Glasgow in 1983 and grew up in Rutherglen. Upon becoming an actor, he began using his mother's maiden name, Rankin, to prevent confusion with Irish actor Richard Harris. He enrolled at Langside College with his brother and fellow actor Colin Harris.

Rankin first came to prominence with Robert Florence, starring alongside him in VideoGaiden and Burnistoun. After brief appearances on Scottish television shows such as Taggart and Legit, he was approached by the BBC to star as Captain Thomas Gillan in a mini-series called The Crimson Field alongside Kevin Doyle and Oona Chaplin. The series aired on BBC One on in April 2014. He also starred in a low-budget horror film, House of Him, which was released during the Glasgow Film Festival in February 2014. The film had a budget of approximately £900 and starred many of his old Burnistoun colleagues, including Robert Florence, Kirsty Strain and Louise Stewart.
