Anthony Perkins (April 4, 1932 – September 12, 1992) was an American actor, best known for his Oscar-nominated role in Friendly Persuasion (1956) and as Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), and its three sequels.

Perkins was born in New York City, the son of Janet Esselstyn (née Rane), and stage and film actor James Ripley Osgood Perkins. He is a descendant of a Mayflower passenger, John Howland. He attended The Brooks School, The Browne & Nichols School, Columbia University and Rollins College, having moved to Boston in 1942, five years after his father's death.

Perkins made his film debut in The Actress (1953). He received the Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year – Actor and an Academy Award nomination for his second film, Friendly Persuasion (1956). The tall (6'2") Perkins also portrayed the troubled former Boston Red Sox baseball player Jimmy Piersall in the 1957 true story Fear Strikes Out.
