Elizabeth Alexander (sometimes credited as Liz Alexander), is an Australian actress with a number of high profile credits in film, television and theatre.

She was born in Adelaide, South Australia, on 21 August 1952, but now lives in Sydney. She attended All Hallows' School in Brisbane. She was married to actor George Spartels from 1984 to 2006 and has two daughters. She currently works at Queenwood School for Girls as a dramatic arts teacher.

Her acting career began early with a part in the series Bellbird in 1967. However, it was straight from graduating at National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) that she got her big break with the part of Esther Wolcott in the ABC series Seven Little Australians. Allegedly the producers had all but given up on the show, because they did not feel that they had found a suitable actress for the part, until they discovered Elizabeth Alexander. She was actually younger than actress Barbara Llewellyn, who played her stepdaughter Meg in the series, but producers felt that they were both convincing in their roles.
