Trenton Lawson "Trent" Lehman (February 23, 1961 - January 18, 1982) was an American child actor, best known for his role as Butch Everett on Nanny and the Professor. He also played a young Christine Jorgensen in The Christine Jorgensen Story and appeared in episodes of Gunsmoke and Emergency!.

Lehman committed suicide at the age of 20, by hanging himself on a chain link fence, outside Vena Avenue Elementary School, that he had attended in childhood. Lehman's death, along with those of two other former child actors, Rusty Hamer and Tim Hovey, inspired Paul Petersen to found A Minor Consideration, an advocacy group for child stars.
