Fernand Ledoux (January 24, 1897 Tienen-September 21, 1993 Villerville) also known as Jacques Joseph Félix Fernand Ledoux, Ledoux Sociétaire de la Comédie Française or Ledoux was a Belgian actor.

Ledoux began his career in the theater, performing in productions across Belgium and France. In 1923, he joined the prestigious Comédie-Française, where he remained a member for over 50 years. Ledoux became known for his dramatic roles, including works by Molière, Racine, and Shakespeare.

In addition to his work on stage, Ledoux appeared in over 70 films throughout his career, including Jean Renoir's "La Grande Illusion" and Marcel Carné's "Les Enfants Terribles." He was also a noted voice actor, providing the French voice for characters in American films like "The True Story of Jesse James" and "The Ten Commandments."

Despite his success in film and on stage, Ledoux remained loyal to the Comédie-Française throughout his career. He was named a "sociétaire" of the company in 1936, and in 1971, he was awarded the title of "doyen" (dean) for his long-standing service. He retired from acting in 1985, at the age of 88, but continued to be a mentor and advisor to younger actors.
