Jon Finch (born 2 March 1941) is an English actor noted for many Shakespearean roles. Perhaps his most notable role was Macbeth in Roman Polanski's 1971 film of "Macbeth".

Finch was born in Caterham, Surrey. He has appeared in films such as the Alfred Hitchcock thriller "Frenzy" (1972), portraying a man wrongly accused of murder; "Death on the Nile" (1978), and most recently, a small role as the Patriarch Heraclius of Jerusalem in the Ridley Scott film "Kingdom of Heaven" (2005). Decades earlier, Finch was cast as Kane in Ridley Scott's "Alien", but had to drop out because of his diabetes. The role was eventually played by John Hurt.
