Guy Rolfe (27 December 1911 – 19 October 2003) was an English actor who specialised in playing villains.[1][2]

He was born Edwin Arthur Rolfe. Rolfe was a professional boxer and racing driver before turning to acting at the age of 24.[1]

He made his screen debut in 1937 with an uncredited appearance in Knight Without Armour. Notable roles include: Prince John in Ivanhoe (1952), Ned Seymour in Young Bess (1953), Caiaphas in King of Kings (1961), and Prince Grigory in Taras Bulba (1962).
