Henry Lincoln is an English writer and actor.

Under his original name of Henry Soskin, he appeared in 1960s television series such as The Avengers and The Champions. He co-wrote three Doctor Who serials with Mervyn Haisman.

In the 1970's he wrote a series of books and inspired documentaries on the alleged "mysteries" surrounding the French village of Rennes-le-Chateau. This launched a series of lectures, and in 1982, Lincoln co-wrote the pseudohistorical book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, which became the inspiration for Dan Brown's bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code.
