Michael Nader (born February 19, 1945, St. Louis, Missouri) is an American actor, known for his role on the ABC primetime soap opera Dynasty from 1983 to 1989 as Farnsworth "Dex" Dexter, the third husband of Alexis Colby (played by Joan Collins). He is the nephew of the late film and TV actor George Nader.

The athletic Nader began his acting career in 1963 as a featured extra in many of AIP's Beach Party films, usually billed as "Mike Nader". He later appeared in the 1965-66 TV series Gidget.

His first soap opera role was opposite actress Marie Masters playing the character of "Kevin Thompson #1" on As the World Turns in 1976. In 1983, he appeared in the NBC prime time soap opera, Bare Essence as "Alexi Theopolis".[citation needed]

He appeared in the 1988 TV sequel The Great Escape II: The Untold Story, and in the 1991 TV movie "Perry Mason: Maligned Mobster".

Nader returned to soap operas, playing Dimitri Marick (the two-time husband of Erica Kane, played by series star Susan Lucci) on All My Children from 1991 to 1999 and from 2000 to 2001. The August 2006 issue of Vanity Fair included an article on Nader. His more recent work includes turns on TV's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Cold Case.
