Robin Hughes (7 June 1920 – 10 December 1989) was a British film and television actor.


Robin Hughes was born June 7, 1920 in Buenos Aires, Argentina to English parents. His father was head of the British Royal Wheat Commission, and Hughes spent his childhood moving from country to country as his father was transferred in government service; consequently, his early schooling was acquired in South America, Canada, Mozambique, East Africa, and other places. At the age of 18, he joined the Royal Navy as a signalman, and at the end of World War II he left the service as lieutenant commander.

He came to the United States in 1948, and was in many theater, television and film roles. In 1958, he appeared as the amorous editor Brian O'Bannion in Auntie Mame opposite Rosalind Russell. That year he made two guest appearances on Perry Mason: first as murderer Addison Doyle in "The Case of the Green-Eyed Sister," then as Rodney Beaton in "The Case of the Buried Clock." He is also known for playing the title role (Satan) in The Twilight Zone episode The Howling Man.

He died December 10, 1989 in Los Angeles, California.
