Graham Moffatt (6 December 19192 July 1965) was a Britishmarker character actor and comedian.

Born in Hammersmithmarker, Londonmarker , he is best known for a number of films where he appeared with Will Hay and Moore Marriott as 'Albert': an insolent, overweight, overgrown-schoolboy type character, loosely reminiscent of Billy Bunter.

His first film with Will Hay was Where There's a Will (1936) in which he plays an office boy. In his next film with Hay, Windbag the Sailor (1936), he is joined by Moore Marriott and his character has become 'Albert'. He is known by this name in all his later films with Hay and Marriott: Oh, Mr Porter! (1937), Old Bones of the River (1938), Ask a Policeman (1939) and Where's That Fire? (1940). Still as Albert, he appeared again with Moore Marriott in a series of films starring Arthur Askey: Charley's Aunt (1940), I Thank You (1941), and Back Room Boy (1942). His later films include Powell and Pressburger's A Canterbury Tale and I Know Where I'm Going!, before he semi-retired from show business to become a publican with his wife Joyce. Together, they ran the Swan Inn at Braybrookemarker (near Market Harboroughmarker) followed by The Englishcombe Inn at Bathmarker. In March 1952 he had to be admitted to hospital in Ketteringmarker after two weeks of hiccoughing. He still made occasional film appearances until his death from a heart attack in 1965 . His ashes were scattered at sea.
