Sherilyn Fenn (born Sheryl Ann Fenn February 1, 1965 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American actress. Her career began inauspiciously with a number of B-movies including Zombie High (1987) and Two Moon Junction (1988). She was first noticed in the 1985 comedy movie Just One of the Guys, but truly came into the public eye when she was cast by David Lynch as the sultry Audrey Horne in Twin Peaks. Lynch also gave her a memorable cameo as a woman involved in a car accident in Wild at Heart, and she appeared in Gary Sinise's film adaptation of Of Mice and Men (1992). Unfortunately, her next movie was the infamously bad Boxing Helena, directed by Lynch's daughter Jennifer, in which Fenn played a role turned down by Kim Basinger. Following that, she has found consistent work with roles in limited-release and TV movies, and had some success with a return to series television in Showtime's Rude Awakening (1998-2001). She posed nude in Playboy magazine in December 1990.

Her father is of Irish and French descent, while her mother is of Italian and Hungarian descent. Singer Suzi Quatro is her maternal aunt.
