Victor Kilian was an actor featured on the Planet of the Apes television series. He appeared in the episode "The Legacy" as an elderly inhabitant of the ruined city of Oakland.

Kilian enjoyed a prolific career on Broadway and in dozens of films through the '30s and '40s. While shooting the John Wayne film Reap the Wild Wind (1942), he lost the use of his eye after an accident during a fighting scene. In the early 1950s, he was blacklisted for his political beliefs during the anti-Communist witchhunts (like Kim Hunter, Jeff Corey, John Randolph, John Ireland, Michael Wilson and Howard Dimsdale), and returned to the stage almost exclusively thereafter. In 1979, he was murdered by burglars at his Hollywood apartment.
