Terry Gill (25 October 1939 - 25 February 2015) was a British Australian character actor who carved a nichè in Australian television playing police officers.
He was a recurring cast member in the women's prison drama Prisoner as Det. Insp. Jack Grace, a regular cast member as Sgt. Jack Carruthers in The Flying Doctors and played another recurring role in Blue Heelers as Superintendent Clive Adamson. He also appeared in a guest role on Neighbours.
He also appeared in the film Crocodile Dundee as the leader of a group of Kangaroo shooters who Dundee (Paul Hogan) knocks out in the Walkabout Creek Hotel bar, and later uses a dead kangaroo as a cover to shoot at the shooters and scare them off. He portrayed Santa Claus on Australian TV's annual Carols by Candlelight for 27 years (in recent years alongside well-known children's entertainers Hi-5 and Australian TV icon Humphrey B. Bear).
For many years Gill ran 'The Tivoli Theatre Restaurant' in Melbourne, with his actress wife Carole Ann Gill.
Gill was diagnosed with lung cancer in late 2014, and died in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond on 25 February 2015.
