Austin St. John is an American actor who portrayed Jason Lee Scott/Red Ranger beginning from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, with his most recent reprisal of the role in Power Rangers Beast Morphers.

He starred as Jason the Red Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for 79 episodes from 1993-94, ending with the episode "Opposites Attract" (though Jason continued to be featured via body doubles, voice doubles, and stock footage before being written off in "The Power Transfer"). He reprised his role of Jason in Power Rangers: Zeo for 17 episodes in 1996 when Jason temporarily took over the Gold Ranger powers. After he departed from Zeo, St. John soon after returned as Jason yet again in the 1997 film Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, along with former castmate Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly Ann Hart).

After the film, St. John appeared as the co-host of the 1999 Power Rangers special "The Lost Episode," along with former castmate Walter Jones (Zack Taylor). In 2002, St. John reprised his role of Jason in Power Rangers: Wild Force, for the episode "Forever Red." He co-starred with nine other former Red Ranger actors, including former castmate Jason David Frank (Tommy Oliver). This would be his last appearance in the Power Rangers franchise until 2020 when he reprised the role of Jason once more for the Beast Morphers episode "Grid Connection".
