Graham Haberfield (17 November 1941 - 18 October 1975) was an English actor. Born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, the son of a railway porter, he was educated at Herbert Strutt Grammar School, Belper. Later, he joined the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, from where he graduated in 1962.

The same year, at the age of 20, he joined the cast of Coronation Street as Jerry Booth, a character who appeared between 1962–1964, 1965–1968 and 1971–1975. His sporadic appearances allowed him to try other work and avoid being typecast. He did varied stage and television work, such as No Hiding Place, Strange Report, and Z Cars, but is best remembered as Jerry Booth and as Winston, the die-hard Manchester City fan in the hit Granada Television sitcom The Dustbinmen.

Sudden death

On 18 October 1975 at the age of 33, Graham Haberfield died from heart failure caused by natural causes. He made two episodes that were shown posthumously. Granada offered to edit out his scenes but his widow, Valerie, insisted they be retained as a tribute.
