David Healy (May 15, 1929 October 25, 1995) was an American-born actor who starred in many British and American television shows. His credits include voices for the Supermarionation series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Joe 90 and The Secret Service, as well as parts in :UFO (TV series), The Troubleshooters, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Space Police (TV pilot), Space Precinct and Dallas.

Healy was born in New York. On the big screen, he gave uncredited performances in the James Bond films You Only Live Twice and Diamonds Are Forever.

In 1983, Healy received the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Guys and Dolls in the 1982 theatre season. His performance of "Nicely Nicely Johnson" was "show stopping" as he sung "Sit down you're rockin the boat" and each night had to do a little encore mid-show. 1986 saw him playing Buddy Plumber in Sondheim's Follies in London.

Healy died following a heart operation on October 25, 1995 in London, England.
