Gareth Jones (June 6 1925 Lampetermarker, WalesmarkerNovember 30 1958) was a Britishmarker actor, chiefly remembered for the circumstances of his death. During the live television broadcast of the Armchair Theatre play Underground on the ITV network in the UK, Jones suffered a massive heart attack and died between two of his scenes while in make-up. Director William Kotcheff was forced to improvise with his cast to carry on the play to its conclusion, with producer Sydney Newman ordering him to "shoot it like a football match". Coincidentally, his character was to have suffered a heart attack during the play.

Jones had previously appeared in a BBC Television adaptation of Under Milk Wood in 1957.
