Benjamin ‘Ben’ Small (born in 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 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.

In the US version, he voiced Stanley and Charlie, who are voiced by Small’s co-star Matt Wilkinson in the UK.

Small left the show as his contract was not renewed past Series 18 of the show and the executives wanted to give Thomas the Tank Engine a fresh new voice.

As well as Thomas & Friends he and fellow actor Keith Wickham previously worked together providing the British voices for Watch My Chops from 2004-2006.

Prior to that he was the voice of Clifford the Big Red Dog’s best friend: “T-Bone”. He also was the voice of Jorge/George and Shun in the spin-off Clifford’s Puppy Days.

He also voiced Zorro in the animated TV series Zorro: Generation Z and played the voice of Spuddy in Lewis and Friends.
