Francesca Annis (born May 14, 1944) is an English actress, particularly well known for her film and television appearances, most recently the BBC Television series Wives and Daughters and Deceit. She is dating Ralph Fiennes.

Francesca Annis began acting professionally in her teens, and made her film debut in the 1950s. In 1967 she played Estella in a television adaptation of Great Expectations. She also presented children's television programmes. While becoming an increasingly well known face on screen, she enjoyed a successful stage career, playing many leading roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
