Carol Lynley (born February 13, 1942) is an American actress and former child model.

Lynley was born Carole Ann Jones in New York City, the daughter of Frances (née Felch), a waitress, and Cyril Jones. Her father was Irish and her mother, a native of New England, was of English, Scottish, Welsh, German, and Native American ancestry. Lynley began her career as a child model under the name "Carolyn Lee", and when she started acting (after appearing on the April 22, 1957 cover of Life magazine at 15), she discovered that another actress had already registered the name, so she modified it to the homophone "Carol Lynley".

Early on, Lynley distinguished herself in both the Broadway stage and Hollywood screen versions of the controversial drama Blue Denim (1959), in which the teenage characters played by Lynley and co-star Brandon De Wilde had to deal with an unwanted pregnancy.
