John Gavin (born John Anthony Golenor Pablos) is an American film actor and a former United States Ambassador to Mexico.
Groomed as a virile, strapping, handsome leading man in the mold of Rock Hudson, some of his most famous roles include A Time to Love and A Time To Die and Imitation of Life (1959) for director Douglas Sirk and producer Ross Hunter, both of whom had earlier helped make a star of Hudson. Gavin also appeared in the seminal thriller Psycho (1960) for director Alfred Hitchcock, the epic Spartacus (1960) directed by Stanley Kubrick, and the 1920s-era Julie Andrews musical Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967) for George Roy Hill.
