John Kane (born 27 October 1945) is an actor and writer. An associate actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company, he played Puck in Peter Brook's acclaimed production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" alongside Ben Kingsley, Alan Howard and Frances de la Tour, before turning to comedy script writing. He began writing for Norman Wisdom and Terry Scott's sketch show "Scott On", before taking over the reigns on a project for Terry Scott and comic actress June Whitfield, which began as "Happily Ever After" and then became long-running series "Terry and June", for which he wrote the entire first series and much of the subsequent series. His TV acting credits include the mentally-crippled Tommy in the 1974 Doctor Who serial Planet of the Spiders.

Continuing to work as an actor with the RSC, he also created sitcoms "Me and My Girl" with Richard O'Sullivan and Tim Brooke-Taylor, "All In Good Faith" with Richard Briers, and Aztec drama The Feathered Serpent. He also wrote for, among others, "Never the Twain", "Smuggler", "Rings on Their Fingers", and wrote the "Six Napoleons" episode of Jeremy Brett's renowned Sherlock Holmes series.

Turning to the stage, he wrote the RSC's version of "Wizard of Oz", West End Cole Porter tribute "A Swell Party" and most recently the words and music for "The Canterville Ghost" at the Southwark Playhouse in 2005. He also wrote the Television Film "The Vamp" starring Shelley Winters, children's cartoon "Britt Allcroft's Magic Adventures of Mumfie", and won a Cable Ace award for his screenplay "Daisies in December" starring Joss Ackland. He collaborated with composer David Bass on a children's opera "Kids Court" which was premiered in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2007 by the North Cambridge Family Opera. He continues to work as a stage and screen actor and now lives in Southern France in a village called Puissalicon
