John Stride (born July 11, 1936) is an English actor best known for his television work during the 1970s.

Stride was born in London, the son of Margaret (née Prescott) and Alfred Teneriffe Stride. [ [ John Stride Biography (1936-) ] ] He attended Alleyn's School, Dulwich and trained at RADA, where he met his first wife, Virginia Stride ("née" Thomas). He made his first, uncredited, screen appearance in the British film, "Sink the Bismarck!" (1960). In the 1960s he appeared at the Old Vic as Romeo in the long running and acclaimed Zeffirelli production of "Romeo and Juliet" with Judi Dench and also as Prince Hal in "Henry IV part 1" with Joss Ackland as Falstaff. At the end of the 1960s he played an unforgettably lively Rosencrantz opposite Edward Petherbridge's more serious and Shakespearean Guildenstern at the Old Vic, in Tom Stoppard's ingenious new play "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead". In 1975 he played the television role with which he became most closely associated, that of businessman David Main in the ITV series, "The Main Chance". In 1978 he appeared in another successful ITV drama series, "The Wilde Alliance", co-starring with Julia Foster. He was cast as King Henry VIII in the BBC's production of the Shakespeare play, of the same name. He played one of the leads in the BBC's adaptation of Kingsley Amis's Booker Prize-winning novel, "The Old Devils" in 1992.
