Arlene Martel (born April 14, 1936, The Bronx, New York) is an American actress and acting coach. Prior to 1964, she was frequently billed as Arline Sax, Arlene Sax, or sometimes as Tasha Martel.

Martel appeared in the 1967 Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Amok Time" (as T'Pring) and the original The Outer Limits episode "Demon with a Glass Hand" (1964) written by Harlan Ellison.

Martel played the princess Sarafina on Have Gun Will Travel, the evil witch "Malvina" on Bewitched, the French Underground contact "Tiger" on several episodes of Hogan's Heroes, a female cosmonaut on I Dream of Jeannie, a Hungarian immigrant "Magda" on The Fugitive (TV series) episode "The Blessings of Liberty"(1966), and the woman who repeatedly utters the sinister phrase "Room for one more, honey!" at the entrance to a hospital morgue, and an airplane door, in the Twilight Zone Episode 53 "Twenty-Two". She also appeared in season one of Twilight Zone Episode 12 "What You Need". She also made guest appearances on The Monkees, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible, The Wild Wild West, Route 66, and Columbo. 1968(movie), Angels From Hell

She received top billing when she starred as the lady commandant in charge of the Russian road crew in Zoltan, Hound of Dracula (1978), although it was only a bit part lasting less than five minutes of the 97 minute movie. She also received credit in a font so large that it was almost twice as large as that used for Reggie Nalder or Michael Pataki, the leads who occupied most of the screen throughout the movie.

She appeared in the Star Trek webisode Of Gods and Men in the final scene as a Vulcan priestess initiating a marriage ceremony between Uhura and Vulcan native Stonn (a character from the episode "Amok Time", played by original actor Lawrence Montaigne). Ironically, it was Stonn that eventually won the hand of T'Pring in that episode.
