Heather Goldenhersh (born March 26, 1973) is an award-winning American actress. She has appeared on Broadway, on television, and in feature films.

Goldenhersh was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in St. Louis. A graduate of Juilliard, Goldenhersh made her film debut in 1996 with her role in an adaptation of Herb Gardner's I'm Not Rappaport. From then on she appeared in films such as Swallowed, The Great Gatsby and The Believer, often in pivotal roles. Goldenhersh also appeared on television in Sex and the City and episodes of the Law & Order franchise. She then focused on her stage career; her 2005 Broadway debut was in Doubt, opposite Cherry Jones and Brian F. O'Byrne.

Goldenhersh was nominated for a Tony Award in 2005 for "Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play" for her role as Sister James in Doubt. She also won a Theatre World Award for that performance.

In 2006, Goldenhersh auditioned for the show The Class, a sitcom created by David Crane (one of the creators of Friends), and Jeffery Klarik (an executive producer of "Mad About You") and was cast in the part of Lina Warbler. The Class premiered in September 2006 and won a People's Choice Award for "Best New Comedy" in January 2007.

In the early 2000s she looked and sounded so much like actress Carolyn McCormick, that many believed her to be either McCormick's daughter, or much younger sister.
