John Carroll (17 July 1906 - 24 April 1979) was an American actor and singer. He was born Julian Lafaye in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Carroll performed in several small roles in films under his original name until 1935, when he first used the name John Carroll in "Hi, Gaucho!". He appeared in several Western films in the 1930s, including the role of Zorro in "Zorro Rides Again" in 1937. Probably his best known role was as Woody Jason in the 1942 movie "Flying Tigers" with John Wayne. He worked steadily through the mid-1950s, but his work began to fade out in the latter half of the decade. His last role was in "Ride a Pink Car" in 1974.

Carroll was first married to first Steffi Duna, and secondly to Lucille Ryman, to whom he was married at the time of his death.

Carroll died of leukemia in Hollywood, California.
