Mark Van Blarcom Slade (born May 1, 1939; Salem, Massachusetts) is an American actor.

In 1956, he enrolled in the Worcester Academy with intention of becoming a cartoonist. After he filled in for a sick classmate, playing the role of an English professor in the play, The Male Animal, he decided to enter acting. In 1961, Slade was cast as Seaman Jimmy 'Red' Smith in Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Despite his character being killed in the movie Irwin Allen brought Slade back for the Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea TV series in 1964 as a new character, Seaman Malone, although he only appeared in the first half of the first season. This made Slade only one of six actors to be in both the film and TV series, and only one of two as series regulars, Del Monroe being the other. In the 1965-1966 television season, Slade starred in NBC's The Wackiest Ship in the Army situation comedy.

In 1967, at the age of twenty-eight, he obtained one of his most memorable parts, Billy Blue Cannon, the blonde haired, blue-eyed son of ranch patriarch John Cannon (Leif Erickson) on NBC's The High Chaparral.

He is currently living in California and still pursuing his artistic ambitions.
