Elizabeth Shepherd (born 12 August 1936) is an English character actress whose long career has encompassed the stage and both the big and small screens. Her television work has been especially prolific. Shepherd's surname has been variously rendered as "Shephard" and "Sheppard".

She began acting in television series in 1959. In 1960, she appeared in an adaptation of A. J. Cronin's novel, The Citadel. She was the original choice to play Emma Peel in the 1960s television series The Avengers. However, after filming nearly two episodes, Shepherd left the production and was replaced by Diana Rigg. In 1970 she appeared on Broadway in Barry England's Conduct Unbecoming, a story of the British Army in Kipling's India, as Mrs. Hasseltine. She was praised for her performance in Time magazine. Shepherd was pictured in Time along with her co-stars, the pop singers Jeremy Clyde and Paul Jones, who began their roles as British subalterns in London during 1969.

In film she appeared as Lady Rowena in Roger Corman's The Tomb of Ligeia (1965), as well as Hell Boats (1970), Damien: Omen II (1978) as the ill-fated reporter Joan Hart, The Kidnapping of the President (1980), Deadly Companion (1980), Invitation to the Wedding (1983), Head Office (1983), Criminal Law (1988), The White Raven (1998), Desire (2000) and Amelia (2009). Her TV work includes the cult series The Corridor People (1966), the miniseries The Bastard (1978), and The Cleopatras (1983), a BBC historical drama.

Elizabeth Shepherd has acted in numerous stage plays in both Shakespearean and contemporary dramas. As well as teaching drama at the Stella Adler school, she starred in "December Fools" in 2006 at the Abingdon Theater in New York. In 2014, she starred in a Canadian production of Driving Miss Daisy.

An article in the Toronto Star reported an incident of Shepherd being a victim of identity theft and mortgage fraud in 2006.
