Harry Wilson (November 22, 1897 - September 6, 1978) was an English character actor who appeared in over 200 films from 1928 to 1965.

His distinctive facial features (which were the result of acromegaly, a disorder of the pituitary gland) often led to him being cast as various henchmen, thugs, convicts and brawlers. He appeared as one of the Winkies in The Wizard of Oz (1939), as well as the Monster in Frankenstein's Daughter (1958).

He was also a stand-in for Wallace Beery.
