Ralph Percy Lewis (October 8, 1872 – December 4, 1937) was an American actor of the silent film era. Born in 1872 in Englewood, Illinois, Lewis appeared in 160 films between 1912 and 1938. The character actor remains perhaps best-remembered for his role as abolitionist U.S. Representative Austin Stoneman in D. W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation (1915) and the governor in Intolerance (1916). Lewis also starred in one of the early Hollywood sound shorts, Gaunt, in 1931. He was married to actress Vera Lewis. He died in Los Angeles, California after being hit by a limousine driven by a chauffeur working for Jack L. Warner.
