Roger Hammond (b. March 21, 1936) is an English character actor who has appeared in many films and television series.

Hammond attended Cambridge University, and appeared extensively in their drama program, alongside actors such as Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, and John Wood. Following that, he attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. In 1963, he joined the Arts Theatre Company, and appeared in a number of productions there.

In 1964, Hammond made his first television appearance, as Tidiman in an episode of The Villains, and his film appearance the next year. Although he worked primarily as a television actor in his early years, since the 1990s his career has been more focused on film, and his credits boast an impressive 125 credits in a variety of roles, ranging from all sorts of genres, although mostly in costume dramas and period pieces. Hammond's credits includes the Prince of Wales in "The Duchess of Duke Street", Valence in "", and Cecil in "A Good Woman". Hammond has also been cast as a clergyman several times, including as the Archbishop in Ian McKellen's "Richard III", the Bishop de Cambrai in "The Princes in the Tower", and as the Chief Augur in the HBO television drama "Rome".

Hammond has additionally done some audio books on tape, appearing in "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead", "Henry IV", and "The Tempest".
