Charles Drake (2 October 191710 September 1994; age 76), born Charles Rupert, is the actor who played Commodore George Stocker in the original series episode "The Deadly Years". He filmed his scenes on Friday 4 August 1967, Wednesday 9 August 1967 and Thursday 10 August 1967 at Desilu Stage 9.

Drake has appeared in nearly 80 feature films. He began primarily as a background extra and bit player, making brief appearances in such classic films as The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), Sergeant York (1941), and The Maltese Falcon (1941). He soon began taking larger supporting roles in films such as the 1953 science fiction classic It Came From Outer Space and 1957's Until They Sail, the latter of which was directed by Robert Wise and starred Jean Simmons.

Perhaps his most well known film roles were as Dr. Sanderson in the 1950 comedy Harvey and as "Brandon" in the 1955 war epic To Hell and Back. He also made several appearances on the television series Wagon Train. He frequently appeared in director Anthony Mann's two films, Winchester '73 (1950) and The Glenn Miller Story (1954), as well as classic films such as the science fiction Tobor the Great (1954) and Douglas Sirk's 1955 melodrama, All That Heaven Allows.
