John Hamill is an English actor.

He had previously been a bodybuilder and one of England's most popular "physique models" in the late 1960s before turning to acting, studying at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, and appearing in the stage farce There's a Girl in My Soup.

Hamill’s background as a physiques model, which included cover appearances on several beefcake publications and the occasional 8 mm ‘posing strap’ film, earned him a considerable gay following, which is still visible on the internet today. It would also prove good training for his later nude appearances in David Grant’s sex films and nudity ridden horror titles like Tower of Evil (1972), in which Hamill’s role in synopsized by The Bare Facts Video Guide as “Buns, walking with Penny, then more buns, rolling into the water, dead”.

He left acting in the late eighties, and went on to run a pine furniture shop. His last known TV appearance was in an episode of The Bill in 1989.

He also appeared in the following filmsTrog (1970), No Blade of Grass (1970), Travels with My Aunt (1972) and Hardcore (1977).

Television appearances included: CrossroadsSpace: 1999The Venturers1990Doctor Who (in the serial The Ribos Operation) and The Professionals.
