Mike Edmonds (born 13 January 1944) is an English actor with achondroplasia (dwarfism), known for his role as Little Ron in the children's television show Maid Marian and Her Merry Men.

Edmonds has appeared in several films, including Flash Gordon (1980), The Dark Crystal (1982), and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). He played the role of Og in the Terry Gilliam film Time Bandits (1981). In Return of the Jedi, (1983) he performed as the Ewok Logray as well as the operator for Jabba the Hutt's tail.

Edmonds can be seen dancing in the Men Without Hats music video "The Safety Dance" as a dwarf jester, wearing a shirt for their Rhythm of Youth album.[1]

With the death of Malcolm Dixon in 2020, Edmonds became the last surviving actor to have played one of the titular Time Bandits.[2]
