Hugh McDermott (20 March 1908 – 29 January 1972) was a British professional golfer turned actor who made a number of film, stage and television appearances between 1936 and 1972. He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1908, and was educated in Davidson's Mains. Initially an instructor at the Royal Burgess Golfing Society of Edinburgh, he later toured South and Central America and won the Central America Open and later helped design a course in Guatemala.[1]

A trip to the United States kindled his interest in the film industry, and he made his screen debut in Well Done, Henry and followed it up with an appearance as HM Stanley in David Livingstone. He made his final appearance in Chato's Land on film, and in The Amorous Prawn on stage in Edinburgh.[2][3]
