Robert Urquhart (16 October 1922 – 21 March 1995) was a Scottish character actor who mainly worked in British television during his career.[1][2]

He was born in Ullapool, Scotland[3][4] and educated at George Heriot's School in Edinburgh. Having initially entered the Merchant Navy, he won an ex-Serviceman's scholarship to train at RADA.[3][5] Urquhart made his stage debut in 1947, while his first film role was in You're Only Young Twice (1952).[6]

He appeared in many television shows of the detective/special-agent genre, such as Department S, Callan, The Professionals, Man in a Suitcase, The Avengers, and opposite Patrick McGoohan in the episodes of Danger Man entitled "English Lady Takes Lodgers" and "It's Up to the Lady" (1965) and as the title character in "The Man with the Foot" (1966).[2] He also played the lead role and served as script editor in Jango, a short lived 1961 production by Associated Rediffusion.[7] Urquhart also starred as Wing Commander MacPhearson in the 1970s series Pathfinders.[8]

He was married twice, first to the actress Zena Walker, and then to the Scottish hotelier and politician Jean Urquhart.[9] He died in Edinburgh on 21 March 1995.[3]
