Ruth Wilson is an English actress best known for her BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominated performance in the title role of the 2006 BBC mini-series Jane Eyre.

She also starred as Alice Morgan in the crime procedural television series Luther, from 2010-2013.

Prior to her role in Jane Eyre, Wilson had only one professional screen credit, in Suburban Shootout, a situation comedy. In 2006–7 she filmed the second season of Suburban Shootout, a new Marple mystery for ITV, and Stephen Poliakoff's BBC television drama Capturing Mary as the young Mary.

In 2007 she appeared in Gorky's Philistines, playing Tanya, at the National from May until August 2007 — and learned to play the piano for the role. She also narrated the audio book of Lauren St John's novel "The White Giraffe".

In June 2007, Wilson presented the 2007 Lilian Baylis Awards. In November 2007, she gave a radio interview on BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour. Other projects in 2007 included the narration of an audio book of the children's novel Dolphin Song by Lauren St John; a guest appearance in the sitcom Freezing as Alison Fennel (2008); narration of the documentary The Polish Ambulance Murders (2008); and the portrayal of a mentally ill doctor in the dramatised documentary The Doctor Who Hears Voices (2008.
