Gary Bond (7 February 1940 – 12 October 1995) was an English-born film and television actor.
Although he was probably best known as a theatrical actor in his native England, he also played a number of roles in feature films and on television. Having appeared in Zulu in 1964, he went on to star as Pip in the 1967 television production of Great Expectation and also in The Main Chance. He played Antonio in BBC Television's 1972 production of The Duchess of Malfi. Bond also had cameos in Z-Cars, The Avengers, Hart to Hart and Bergerac. He also starred in the classic Australian film Wake in Fright, filmed in 1970 and released the following year.
On stage, he most famously played Joseph in the 1972 London production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Later, he succeeded David Essex as Che Guevara in the London production of Rice and Lloyd Webber's Evita, initially opposite Elaine Paige and, subsequently, Marti Webb.
American artist and illustrator E.J. Taylor was Bond's boyfriend from 1979 to 1995. The two men lived, first in Barnes and then in Ealing, London, following their initial meeting in Fire Island, New York, USA in 1979.
