Benjamin "Ben" Small (born 1971) is a British voice actor.
Small is best known for voicing Thomas in the UK version of the CGI episodes of the children's television series Thomas & Friends from 2009 to 2015. Small also provided voices for Toby (in which he based the character's voice on Dad's Army actor Clive Dunn) and Ferdinand in the UK version while voicing Rheneas, Flynn, the Troublesome Trucks and Owen in both the UK and US versions of the series.
Small left the show alongside Thomas' US voice Martin Sherman as their contract was terminated and the executives wanted to give Thomas the Tank Engine a fresh new voice.
