Cindy Carol (born October 11, 1944, in Los Angeles, California) is an American actress. She was credited as Carol Sydes before her starring role as Gidget in Gidget Goes to Rome (1963).

Her first recorded role was as an uncredited schoolgirl in Good Morning, Miss Dove (1955).

Under the name of Carol Sydes, she made a guest appearance in an episode of Medic that same year. This was followed by guest appearances in seven episodes of Leave It to Beaver in the years 1957-1960, four of them in the role of Alma Hanson, the other three (one uncredited) in various other roles. Following a single guest appearance in My Three Sons in 1961, in 1962 she played the roles of Betty in the film Cape Fear and Binkie Massey in the 1962-1963 CBS television series The New Loretta Young Show, which ran only for twenty-six weeks.

In 1963, taking the new stage name of Cindy Carol, she starred as the second blonde Gidget in the third and final Gidget feature film, Gidget goes to Rome. The role had previously been played by Sandra Dee and Deborah Walley in the two previous films.

Carol subsequently made a single guest appearance in Vacation Playhouse in 1964. Then in 1965 she appeared as Susan in the television series Never Too Young, and starred as Pandora Leaf in the film Dear Brigitte, in a strong cast including Brigitte Bardot who played herself.
