Ralph Walton was a non-canonical character who was created for the film adaptation of The King of Clubs in Series 1 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. Ralph was an actor at Parade Studios, a film studio owned by Henry Reedburn. At the beginning of the episode, Reedburn ordered Ralph to be fired as he thought the actor was past his prime. Ralph was later seen driving erratically late at night towards "Mon Désir", the residence of Henry Reedburn. He became a potential suspect when Reedburn was later found dead.

Ralph Walton was played in the film by Gawn Grainger. This character does not occur in the original story.
