Abraham Sofaer was a Burmese-born American stage actor who became a familiar supporting player on film and television in his later years. He was born in Rangoon.

Among his more prominent performances were the dual role of the Judge and Surgeon in Powell and Pressburger's A Matter of Life and Death and St. Paul in Quo Vadis.

He made three appearances on Perry Mason, including the role of defendant Elihu Laban in the 1963 episode, "The Case of the Two-Faced Turn-a-Bout."
