Ronald R. Foster, known as Ron Foster (born February 19, 1930), is an American actor whose longest-running role was as Dr. Charles Grant from 1991 to 1995 in the defunct CBS soap opera The Guiding Light.

His early work included twenty-four appearances from 1957 to 1959, mostly in the role of Officer Garvey in the Broderick Crawford syndicated television series Highway Patrol. Foster also made five appearances between 1959 and 1960 on CBS's short-lived adventure series Men into Space in the role of Lieutenant Neil Templeton. He appeared three times in different roles from 1959 to 1964 on CBS's Rawhide, starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood. From 1964 to 1971, he appeared five times in different roles on another western, NBC's Bonanza. He appeared twice in 1957 on separate episodes in the first season of the NBC western Wagon Train.

One of Foster's most memorable half-hour appearances was as Master Sergeant William Connors on CBS's The Twilight Zone in the 1963 episode "The 7th Is Made Up of Phantoms", a story of a modern military patrol which encounters shocking evidence from the Battle of the Little Big Horn in Montana. His co-stars in the segment are Randy Boone and Warren Oates.

In 1957, Foster played Kenny Hedges in the episode entitled "Jet Flight" of the military series The West Point Story. He appeared at this time on Death Valley Days as Siles Begg in "Rough and Ready".

In 1959, he was cast as Steve in the film Diary of a High School Bride; and appeared in starring roles in several low budget films for producer Edward Small and director Edward L. Cahn, including Cage of Evil and The Walking Target (both 1960).
