James Marne Kumar Maitland (18 December 1914 – 24 August 1991) was an Anglo-Indian character actor in films and television programmes.
Maitland was born in Calcutta, and educated at Bedales School before going up to Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he took a BA in 1936. He served in the Royal Artillery during the Second World War, commissioned as a second lieutenant on 20 November 1941. He made his film debut in Cairo Road (1950). His sharp, dark features and small stature saw him typecast as villains from the Middle and Far East, particularly for Hammer Film Productions. The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) was his one appearance in a James Bond film.
He made numerous television appearances in programmes such as The Buccaneers, Danger Man, The Avengers (as a sinister Eastern delegate in the 1967 episode "Death's Door"), The Saint, The Champions, Department S, and Randall and Hopkirk, and the Granada series The Jewel in the Crown (1984, as Pandit Baba, a scholar agitating for an end to British rule in India).
