Astrid Allwyn (November 27, 1905 - March 31, 1978) was an American stage and film actress.

She studied dancing and dramatics in New York and later joined a stock company. Allwyn made her Broadway debut in 1929 in Elmer Rice's Street Scene. On the strength of her performance in Once in a Lifetime, she was given film work. In films, she often played the woman from whom the male star escaped, for example Charles Boyer's character's fiancé in the 1939 version of Love Affair or James Stewart's in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Her first husband was actor Robert Kent; the two appeared together in the 1936 Shirley Temple film, Dimples. They were divorced in 1941. She remained married to second spouse Charles O. Fee until her death from cancer in 1978. Two of their daughters also became actresses, Melinda O. Fee and Vicki Fee.
