Orestis Makris (Greek: Ορέστης Μακρής; September 30, 1898 – January 29, 1975) was a Greek actor and tenor.

He graduated from the Greek Odeum of Athens and first entered the scene as a tenor in the troupe of Rosalia Nika in 1925. He later joined the Papaioannou troupe, before moving to more comedic roles. Makris excelled in the portrayal of folk characters, especially the stock role of the "drunkard". Makris also participated in about forty movies, mostly as an over-strict father. He is considered one of the most significant modern Greek actors.

He was decorated with the Order of the Phoenix. He died on January 29, 1975 in Athens and is buried at the First Cemetery in a family grave.
