Renee Griffin (born May 30, 1968 in Long Beach, California), is an American actress.

Renee Griffin is married to actor James Marshall, who is the father of one of her sons (James David, b. 2002). She has a son, Dustin, from a previous relationship.

She was a regular cast member on the now-defunct ABC soap "Port Charles", playing the part of Danielle Ashley from 1997-1998. In 2001 she appeared on the TV series "Black Scorpion" as the villain Aerobicide.

Griffin is best known for her role as Lanie in the cult favorite stoner film, "The Stoned Age" (1994), and as Angel in the 1991 action movie "Showdown in Little Tokyo". She appeared nude in both movies.

She also appeared nude in several of her other films: "Criminal Affairs", "Ladykiller", "Number One Fan", "Cyborg 2", and "Death Match".

Her first known nude film appearance was in "Showdown in Little Tokyo", where she played the role of a drug-addicted nightclub entertainer who gets beheaded after crossing Yakuza boss Funekei Yoshida, played by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa.

The scene features an already drugged Angel being questioned about her loyalty by Yoshida. Angel offers her body in an attempt to appease Yoshida, who drugs her more and then strips her of all clothes save the garter belt. She is fondled from behind, from the breasts to the crotch, before being beheaded.

Renee has guest-starred on "High Tide", "Dangerous Women", "Eye on L.A.", and on the CBS hit "".

She studied drama at Fullerton College, where she appeared on stage in such plays as "Crime of the Heart", "Philadelphia Story", and "The Star-Spangled Girl". Before that she attended Kennedy High School in Long Beach.
