Annette Andre (born 24 June 1939, Sydney, Australia) is an Australian actress best known for her work on British television throughout the 1960s and 1970s. She was educated at Brigidine College, Sydney. Her father was an upholsterer.

She began work as a dancer and singer in radio and also worked in theatre and television in Australia. Her first film was in Britain and was called "This is My Street". She played in the stage musical "Vanity Fair" in London's West End.

Probably her most memorable role was starring as Marty Hopkirk's widow Jeannie Hopkirk in the late 1960s ITV cult classic "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)" as well as making many guest appearances in popular shows such as "The Avengers", "The Saint", "Adam Adamant Lives!", "The Troubleshooters", "The Baron" and "The Prisoner". She played Philia, a beautiful virgin concubine from the house of procurer Marcus Lycus played by Phil Silvers in the 1966 film version of the Broadway musical "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

During the 1970s, Andre guest-starred in episodes of "The Persuaders!", "The New Avengers" and "Return of the Saint". In the 1980s, she appeared in the soap opera "Crossroads" as well as returning to Australia to play Jennifer Brent in "Taurus Rising" and Camilla Wells in "Prisoner".

Andre is now semi-retired from acting, and devotes much of her time to animal welfare issues. Andre will be making one of her rare appearances at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Aberdeen, Maryland in September 2007.
