Angelo Muscat  was a character actor.

Muscat was born in Malta. He appeared in 14 of the 17 episodes of the sixties cult television series The Prisoner, in which he played the famously mute Butler. Distinctly diminutive at only 4 ft 3 in (1.3 m), he played an Oompa-Loompa in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (uncredited, 1971). He also appeared in the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour.

He appeared in the 1965 Doctor Who story Galaxy 4.

He made ornate birdcages by hand. Each year, on October 10, a small group of enthusiasts dubbed the "Friends of Angelo Muscat" (FOAM) celebrate his life.
