Ian Colin (born 16th May 1912 in Rhodesia, died 20th February 1987 in Alicante, Spain) appeared on Coronation Street in June 1963, playing Arthur Forsyth-Jones, reprising the role in December of the same year in a recorded voice at Annie Walker's This Is Your Life presentation.

His film career began in the early 1930s with many now-forgotten productions for British studios in Quota quickies. His earliest known radio credit was in 1945 in a dramatised performance of the trial of Charles I entitled The King's Tryall and he made his television debut in 1951 with The Mysterious Count, a production for children.

His other credits include The Quatermass Experiment, BBC Sunday-Night Theatre, William Tell, Biggles (in two episodes adapted by H.V. Kershaw), No Hiding Place, Emergency-Ward 10, The Man in Room 17, Dr. Finlay's Casebook and The Avengers before he retired from acting in the late 1960s.
