Lewis Fiander (born 12 January 1938) is an Australian stage, television and film actor.
Fiander was born in Melbourne, Victoria, the son of Mona Jane (née King) and Walter Lewis Fiander. Moving to the UK from his native Australia he appeared in such films as Dr. Phibes Rises Again, Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde and Not Now Comrade. In 1970 he originated the role of John Adams in the London stage production of 1776. During the 1970's he was cast as Professor Tryst in the Doctor Who episode Nightmare of Eden and after discussion with his friend Tom Baker chose to give the character a hybrid accent as would befit an alien in the future. In 1974, he appeared as Casimir Dudevant playing opposite Rosemary Harris in the BBC series Notorious Woman. He returned to Australia around the mid-eighties and continued his acting career.
