Gary Miller born Neville Williams (1924 — 15 June 1968) was an English popular music singer and actor of the 1950s and 1960s. His career spanned only 13 years before he died of a heart attack in 1968. He released 24 singles and six EPs on the Pye Records label between 1955 and 1967. Pye released a further compilation EP after his death.

Miller had several Top 40 singles early in his career, his debut single, "Yellow Rose Of Texas" reaching #13 on the UK Single Chart. The most successful was "Robin Hood" (the theme to "The Adventures of Robin Hood") which spent 28 weeks in the chart [cite web| last=White | first=Bob | url= | title=Rockin' Robin - A study of the outlaw Robin Hood's links with popular music|accessdate=2007-08-22] and peaked at #10, his only Top 10 hit.

Miller had a number of small acting roles in the television series "The Saint" and "Gideon's Way", and was a regular panelist on "Juke Box Jury". He provided the singing voice for Troy Tempest in the Gerry Anderson series "Stingray" and recorded "Aqua Marina", the end titles theme for the series. He also recorded "Flying High", the original unused end titles theme for "Thunderbirds". "Flying High" was later used in the episode "Ricochet" and released on the "Thunderbirds 2" compilation album.

Miller appeared on stage in the 1964 production of "She Loves Me" at the Lyric Theatre and on the cast album of that production. [cite web|url=|title=Gary Raymond filmography|accessdate=2007-08-22] He also began appearing in the musical "Come Spy with Me" with Danny La Rue and Barbara Windsor, shortly before his untimely death. He died shortly before production finished on an episode of The Saint, "The People Importers", in which he was also playing a key part. The series' Associate Producer, Johnny Goodman, later remarked that Miller was "working night and day" as a consequence of his twin commitments, and that production on the Saint episode had to be completed with a double in place of the late actor.
