Rachel Ticotin (born November 1, 1958) is an American film and television actress.

Ticotin (pronounced tick-oh-tin) was born in the Bronx, New York, the daughter of Iris Torres, a Puerto Rican educator, and Abe Ticotin, a Jewish used car salesman. Her brother, Sahaj, is a musician and the lead singer for his rock group, Ra. Ticotin grew up in the North West Bronx, which has a large population of Puerto Ricans, and where she received her primary (ps 86) and secondary education. Ticotin's parents enrolled her in the Ballet Hispanico of New York where she took ballet lessons.

In 1978, Rachel appeared as a dancer in the film King of the Gypsies, making that her official film debut. She also acted on the Off-Broadway production of Miguel PiƱero's The Sun Always Shines for the Cool. (During this period, she also received an onscreen credit as a production assistant on Brian De Palma's Dressed to Kill.) Her first big break came in 1981, when she was cast as Isabella opposite Paul Newman in the movie Fort Apache, The Bronx. That same year, she was listed as one of 12 promising New Actors in John Willis Screen World Vol.33.
