Colin Fox (born November 20, 1938) is a Canadian actor.
His acting credits include playing Jean Paul Desmond and Jacques Eloi Des Mondes (the latter speaking to his descendant from the portrait) in Strange Paradise (CBC/Syndicated, 1969–70), as well as voice work in various animated series, and in other roles in film, television and on the stage. He created the role of Walter Telford, an attorney on the series High Hopes. His most famous role may be that of Anton Hendricks in the TV series PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal. He also appeared in Shining Time Station episode, "Schemer's Special Club" as the misogynistic and racist Nicklear Club President and owner Mr. Hobart Hume III.
He played cunning, ruthless villains in three episodes of the Canadian TV show Friday the 13th: The Series. One of them actually killed Micki, one of the lead characters, in the episode "Tails I live, heads you die".
He also supplied the voice of the Professor in Rupert; King Harkinian in The Legend of Zelda animated series as well as Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon; and the arch villain The Wizard in The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland.
Fox was born in Aldershot, Ontario, Canada. He is a 1965 graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada. Fox's wife, Carol, is deceased. They had one daughter, Sarah. He lives in Elora, Ontario, just outside Toronto, in an 1860s Victorian home.
