Chris Robinson (born November 5, 1938, in West Palm Beach, Florida; sometimes credited as Christopher Robinson) is an actor who played Rick Webber #2 on General Hospital from 1978 to 1986 where he was involved in a triangle with his wife Lesley Webber and the married Monica Quartermaine. Following this role, he joined Another World in late 1987 where he played the role of Jason Frame and was reunited with Denise Alexander who had played Lesley on "GH". Jason was murdered in early 1989. He then appeared on another soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful as Jack Hamilton, joining in the early 1990s and leaving after three years. He last appeared in this part in 2005, having made several guest appearances over the years. Robinson returned to "GH" after a 16-year absence in 2002, only to see the character of Rick killed off in a controversial storyline that altered the back story. In 2013, he appeared in a 50th anniversary celebration episode as Rick's spirit, making peace with his old rival Alan Quartermain when they both appeared to Monica and Alan's sister, Tracy.
Robinson was a young adult actor and stunt man and appeared in such films of the 1950s as Diary of a High School Bride and The Beast from Haunted Cave. In the 1960s, he was cast as Flight Engineer and top turret gunner Sgt. Sandy Komansky on ABC's Twelve O'Clock High in the last two seasons. In 1972, he got the lead as a fanatical snakecharmer in the horror movie, Stanley.

In 1985, Robinson was convicted of income tax evasion. He was allowed to continue his role on General Hospital under a prison work-release provision.
