Dallas Roland Adams (17 February 1947 – 29 August 1991) was an English actor noted for his television performances.

His television credits include Strange Report, Thriller, Space: 1999, Bergerac, Doctor Who (in the serial Planet of Fire), Robin of Sherwood and Agatha Christie's Poirot, and his film credits include A Midsummer Night's Dream (1968), The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971), Frankenstein: The True Story (1973), From Beyond the Grave (1974), Gulag (1985) and King Ralph (1991).
