Patrick Wymark (11 July 1926 – 20 October 1970) was an English, stage, film, and television actor.
Wymark married Olwen Wymark, an American playwright, in 1953. He took his acting name from his grandfather-in-law, the writer William Wymark Jacobs. The couple lived in Parliament Hill, Hampstead, and had four children, including the future actress Jane Wymark. He had a brother, John Cheeseman.
Wymark died suddenly in Melbourne, Australia on 20 October 1970, aged 44, of a heart attack in the hotel room in which he was staying. He had been due to star in the play Sleuth at the Comedy Theatre three days later. On the night of his death, he was to appear on the TV variety program In Melbourne Tonight. He, guest Richard Deacon and host Stuart Wagstaff had just appeared together in a TV production of Hans Christian Andersen stories, and his non-appearance led to several jokes by Wagstaff and Deacon. Host Wagstaff was informed of Wymark's death mid-way through the program, and announced it at the end.
He was buried at Highgate Cemetery in London. Wymark View—located in his home town, Grimsby—is named after him.
