Gerald Grant Sim (born 4 February 1925) is an English actor who is perhaps best known for playing the Rector in To the Manor Born. He is the younger brother of the actress Sheila Sim and brother-in-law of the actor/director Richard Attenborough.

In August 2013, on Richard Attenborough's 90th birthday, it was reported that he was living in a care home for entertainers with his sister in the next room and his brother-in-law on the other side.


Sim was born in Jack the Ripper (1988), Chaplin (1992) and Patriot Games (1992). Coincidentally playing a vicar, he appeared in one episode of Keeping Up Appearances before Jeremy Gittins took on the role of the vicar on a more permanent basis. He is retired from acting, although he appeared in the 2007 25th Anniversary special episode of To the Manor Born.
