Gary Chalk (born November 13, 1953) is a British-born Canadian actor and voice actor. He is also known as Garry Chalk.

Chalk was born in Southampton, England and moved to Vancouver, Canada in 1957. He has been involved with professional theatre since 1978, and has performed at The Playhouse, The Arts Club and numerous theatres in British Columbia, Ontario and Alberta. The last live stage production he did was "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", where he played Milos Gloriosous. He also performed in "Henry IV" and "As You Like It" at The Playhouse, as well as "Dracula" and "Passion" at The Arts Club.

Most of his career has been in film and television; he had a recurring role on "Cold Squad" for four years, for which he won Gemini Awards in two consecutive years, and until the close of its ninth season had a recurring role on the hit science-fiction series "Stargate SG-1". He is also a veteran of over 1500 animated productions including "Class of the Titans", "Transformers" and the 2002 remake of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe". He is, however, best known for his voice acting of Optimus Prime/Primal, whom he has often played since he first acquired the role in the Beast Wars Transformers Series, with the single exception being the series. He voiced G1 Megatron in Beast Wars for a single episode, making him the first actor who has voiced both Megatron and Optimus Prime.

Most recently, he has appeared occasionally in the Sci-Fi Channel shows "Eureka", as Col. Briggs and "Painkiller Jane", as Ruben Hennessey.
