Richard Waugh (born February 28, 1961) is a Canadian voice actor, perhaps best known for providing the voice of Albert Wesker in the video games Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4. He also voiced Wesker in a fictional documentary titled Wesker's Report, as well as voicing various minor characters throughout the Resident Evil franchise.[1] His distinctive approach to voicing the Wesker character has influenced the performances of subsequent actors in the role, including Jason O'Mara (in the film Resident Evil: Extinction) and D.C. Douglas.

Waugh spent six years with the Shaw Festival multiple award-winner for work in commercials. On television, he was a member of the repertory cast of the A&E TV series A Nero Wolfe Mystery (2001–2002). He also played the title role of Jimmy MacDonald in Jimmy MacDonald's Canada, a 2005 comedy mockumentary that ran on CBC. In film Richard Waugh starred alongside Timothy Dalton in the film Possessed. He also had a brief appearance in the film Ice Bound. He played an FBI agent in the 2003 remake of The In-laws.
