George Siegmann (February 8, 1882 in New York City – June 22, 1928 in Hollywood, California) was an American actor in the silent film era. He is listed as having been in over 100 films. His more notable roles include Silas Lynch in Griffith's Birth of A Nation (1915), Porthos in The Three Musketeers (1921), Bill Sikes in Oliver Twist (1922), the guard in the 1927 film The Cat and the Canary, and Dr. Hardquanonne in The Man Who Laughs (completed in 1927, released in 1928).

In June 1915, Siegmann was seriously injured in the crash of a car driven by film actor and director Todd Browning, who was also badly hurt. Another passenger, film actor Elmer Booth, was killed instantly in the crash. Siegmann had four broken ribs, a deeply lacerated thigh, and internal injuries.[1]

In 1927, Siegmann married Maud Darby. About a year later, in 1928, after a long illness, he died of pernicious anemia .[2]
