Nerys Hughes (born 8 November 1941) is a Welsh actress, known primarily for her television roles, including her part in the BBC TV series The Liver Birds.
She was born in Rhyl (then in Flintshire, now in Denbighshire). She studied drama at Rose Bruford College. She is best known for the role of Sandra Hutchinson in the enormously successful BBC TV series The Liver Birds which ran from 1969 to 1978 with a brief revival in 1996. Her main co-stars were Mollie Sugden and Polly James.
Hughes was one of the explorers who voyaged to the planet Arg in the (now lost from the BBC) 4th episode of the second series of the 'science-fiction' quiz The Adventure Game in 1981, where she was evaporated in the Vortex game. She also guest-starred in the metaphorical and esoteric Doctor Who story "Kinda" (1982) as the scientist Todd, alongside actors Peter Davison, Richard Todd and Simon Rouse; and was a producer on the Sky1 drama Is Harry on the Boat? (2001). She appeared in the Torchwood episode "Something Borrowed" as Brenda Williams. She is also known for her role as Glenda in The Queen's Nose (1998–2000).
