Constantine Gregory (born September 16, 1942), sometimes credited as Constantine Constantin de Goguel is an American actor and Dialect Coach. Gregory was the voice of Barry Hercules in Star Fleet.

Constantine Gregory was born Constantine Liebert, or Leebaert to a Dutch father and Russian mother. As the son of a journalist/broadcaster father and an actress mother, Constantine attended school in England after moving there with his mother in 1950. After attending Dartington Hall School, Constantine went to Trinity College, Dublin from 1961-1965, studying Economics and Political Science. During his college years, he was President of the Trinity College Players and found huge success while at the Edinburgh Festival, performing at the still-newly opened Traverse Theatre. Constantine continued his stage work with performances across the London front. He began screen work in 1967 and cultivated a vast amount television credits.

His film and television career took off, thanks largely to his speaking fluent Russian at a time when Cold War spy stories were popular. Finding that he was being type cast as a "foreigner", he took on the professional surname of Gregory, and started getting more varied roles. His facility for accents and languages saw him portray not only Russians, but Americans, Germans, Spaniards and even a Moroccan. This vocal ability made him in demand as a "voice" in recording ADR, or "dubbing" feature films. He has now done this work, as a voice and group director, on over 350 films. This in turn led to being asked to dialogue coach the TV mini-series Mussolini: The Untold Story with George C. Scott and many other stars, including the young Robert Downey, Jr. and Lee Grant.

Gregory's skills as a dialogue coach have been mostly used with non-Anglo actors who need to act in English, and in establishing dialect conventions with multi-national casts. He has worked with many distinguished directors and international stars in this capacity, as well as the most distinguished actors in many countries, while continuing to act in feature films and TV movies.
