Ross Boatman (born 3 March 1964) is an English actor who played fireman Kevin Medhurst in London's Burning from 1988 to 1995. He is now a professional poker player with the Hendon Mob team and has career winnings of over £1 million.

Since leaving London's Burning to concentrate on his poker career, Boatman has made sporadic returns to acting. His 1999 role in A Touch of Frost was his first television role in four years. He has since appeared in The Bill and Holby City and TV movies such as Planespotting and Wall of Silence. He turned down a part in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. He returned to London's Burning for a cameo appearance in 2000.

In 2008 Boatman featured in Drama Trails, in which he was reunited with fellow London's Burning actor Sean Blowers (John Hallam) to discuss their time on the show.
