John Richardson (born 19 January 1934 in Worthing, Sussex) is an English actor, who appeared in movies from the 1950s until the 1990s.

He appeared in many Italian films, including Mario Bava's Black Sunday (1960). His best-known role was perhaps in One Million Years B.C. (1966), in which he played the hero who fell in love with Raquel Welch. Another notable role was Killikrates/Leo Vincey in the fantasy/adventure film She alongside Ursula Andress, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Bernard Cribbins. Richardson was the only actor to reprise his role in the sequel The Vengeance of She.

He had small roles in the remake of The 39 Steps (1959); Tender is the Night (1962) as a young man, uncredited; and in On A Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970) with Barbra Streisand.

He was, at one point, considered for the role of James Bond, when Sean Connery first left but lost out to George Lazenby.
