Colin Chase (April 13, 1886, Lewiston, Idaho – April 24, 1937, Sawtelle, California) was an American silent film actor.


Born in 1886 in Idaho, Chase signed for his first film role in 1915 and starred in about 45 films until his death from a paralysis attack in 1937.

In films from 1915, Chase played scores of villainous roles, often in Westerns where he took to using the more relaxed moniker of Bud Chase. Chase was a busy supporting player, especially with Fox, and he had no trouble adjusting to talkies. He died, suddenly, from an attack of paralysis. A former cartoonist for a Chicago paper and veteran vaudevillian, he often listed 'expert horsemanship' among his accomplishments.
