Terry Kilburn (born 25 November 1926) is an English-American former child actor. He is sometimes credited as Terence Kilburn or Terrance Kilburn.

Kilburn was born in London in 1926. Known for his innocent, dreamy, doe-eyed look, he achieved fame at the age of 11 portraying Tiny Tim in the 1938 MGM film version of A Christmas Carol, and also as four generations of the Colley family in Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939). He also played leading roles in two Freddie Bartholomew films, Lord Jeff (1938) and Swiss Family Robinson (1940). He was featured in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1939) with Basil Rathbone.

Kilburn had a small role in National Velvet (1944). In 1944, he also worked in The Keys of the Kingdom, starring Gregory Peck, but his scenes were cut. He had a small part in his last film, Lolita (1962).

From 1970–94, Kilburn was artistic director of Oakland University's Meadow Brook Theatre in Rochester, Michigan. Meadow Brook Theatre is Michigan's only LORT theatre. It presents classic plays, comedies and musicals, and is known for its annual production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, adapted by Kilburn's partner Charles Nolte.
