Daniel Emilfork (April 7 1924 San Felipe, Chile – October 17 2006 Paris, France) was a French stage and film actor of Ukrainian-Jewish descent.

Emilfork was born in San Felipe, Chile after his parents fled a pogrom in Odessa. At age 25, he left Chile and settled in France, because, according to his friend Alejandro Jodorowsky, he didn't feel comfortable being a homosexual man in Chile.

Emilfork's face was out of the norm and had made him a choice character actor for films such as The City of Lost Children (1995). He specialized in roles of villains. Previously he had played in Fellini's Casanova (1976), in Roman Polanski's Pirates (1986) and in Taxandria (1994).

Emilfork's voice and accent when speaking French were extremely characteristic and very famous in France.
