Graham Haberfield (17th November, 1941 - 17th October, 1975) was a British actor best known for his role on Coronation Street as mild-mannered builder Jerry Booth, whom he played in three separate stints on the programme, from 1962 to 1964, between 1965 and 1968, and from 1971 till his untimely passing in October 1975. Graham suffered a fatal heart attack as a result of a liver condition. His widow Valerie Haberfield insisted that scenes he had filmed in two episodes were shown posthumously as a tribute to her husband. They were transmitted on 27th October and 29th October 1975.

The character of Jerry Booth as played by Haberfield was also intended to be one of the stars of a proposed comedy Spin-off from Coronation Street entitled Rest Assured which got as far as the recording of a pilot programme in 1972 which, to date, has not been transmitted.

Graham's other credits include Granada situation comedy The Dustbinmen, Z Cars and Paul Temple.
