Emrys Jones (22 September 1915 – 10 July 1972) was an English actor.

Making his film debut in Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's One of Our Aircraft Is Missing (1942), he developed a career in the British cinema of the 1940s. Due to his boyish looks he would often be cast as young innocents in films such as: The Wicked Lady (1945); The Rake's Progress (1945); Nicholas Nickleby (1947); and Powell and Pressburger's The Small Back Room (1949).

When he was relegated to second features in the 1950s he concentrated on his stage career, maturing into an accomplished character actor in the process. The latter half of his career was mostly spent on television in such programmes as Softly, Softly; Out of the Unknown; Dixon of Dock Green; Doomwatch; Z-Cars; and perhaps most memorably as 'The Master of the Land of Fiction' in the Doctor Who serial, The Mind Robber.

He was successively married to Anne Ridler and Pauline Bentley, and died of a heart attack in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1972.
