Cherry Jones (born November 21, 1956) is an American actress who is most noted for her work on Broadway. She has won two Tony Awards, three Drama Desk Awards and an Emmy Award.
Jones made her Broadway debut in the 1987 original Broadway Production of Stepping Out. A five-time Tony Award nominee, she has twice won Best Actress in a Play, for the 1995 revival of The Heiress and the 2005 original production of Doubt. On television, she starred as Allison Taylor on the FOX series 24 (2008-10), for which she won the 2009 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama series.

In 1995, when Jones accepted her first Tony Award, she thanked her then girlfriend, architect Mary O'Connor. When she accepted her Best Actress Tony in 2005 for her work in Doubt, she thanked "Laura Wingfield", the Glass Menagerie character being played in the Broadway revival by Jones's girlfriend, actress Sarah Paulson. The pair had attended the awards together and kissed right after Jones won. In 2007, Paulson and Jones declared their love for each other in an interview with VelvetPark at Women's Event 10 for the LGBT Center of New York.
Paulson and Jones ended their relationship amicably in 2009.
