Jameson Thomas (born Thomas Roland Jameson; 24 March 1888 – 10 January 1939) was an English film actor.  He appeared in more than 80 films between 1923 and 1939.
He was born in St George Hanover Square, London.  On the stage from his early teens, Jameson first appeared as a "half-breed" boy in The Squaw Man . He made his screen debut in 1923 in the film Chu Chin Chow . In 1929, he starred in Piccadilly as Valentine Wilmot opposite Anna May Wong.  Piccadilly was a smash hit in England, where reviewers called it "by far the best production yet made at Elstree"  and "one of the finest films that has ever come from a British studio."  The film, however, only received a tepid response in the U.S. where it had a limited run.  Today, Piccadilly is recognised as an accomplished melodrama and one of the best films of the late British silent era. 
Thomas moved to Hollywood, appearing on the stage with Bebe Daniels in The Last of Mrs. Cheyney . He continued to appear in minor roles in various films until his death.  Thomas played "King" Westley, the fortune-hunting husband/fiancé of Claudette Colbert in Frank Capra's comedy It Happened One Night .  He died from tuberculosis in Sierra Madre, California.  He was interred at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood.
