K. T. Stevens (July 20, 1919 - June 13, 1994), born Gloria Wood in Los Angeles, California, was an American film actress. The daughter of director Sam Wood, Stevens made her first film appearance when she was just two years old in her father's second 1921 silent film, Peck's Bad Boy. As an adult, she changed her name to distance herself from her father's fame. In 1946, Stevens married actor Hugh Marlowe. They divorced in 1968. She and Marlowe were the parents of 2 sons.

Stevens appeared in a number of films in the 1940s and 1950s, including The Great Man's Lady (1942) with Barbara Stanwyck, Address Unknown (1944), Port of New York (1949) with Yul Brynner, and Harriet Craig (1950) with Joan Crawford. In addition, she acted on episodic television in such series as The Brothers Brannagan, and appeared on the daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless as the veiled facially burned Vanessa Prentiss. Another memorable appearance was an episode of I Love Lucy ("New Neighbors") where she appeared opposite Hayden Rorke as TV actors who Lucy mistakenly believes are Russian secret agents. She also appeared as Lieutenant Harriet Twain in the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century episode "Return of the Fighting 69th". Her last film role before her death from lung cancer was in the 1994 Whoopi Goldberg film Corrina, Corrina.
