Lucy Saroyan (17 January 1946 - 11 April 2003) was an American actress and photographer.

Saroyan was born in San Francisco, California, the daughter of the writer William Saroyan and the actress Carol Grace. Her brother is writer Aram Saroyan. Following her parents' second divorce, her mother married the actor Walter Matthau and Lucy Saroyan later worked alongside her stepfather in a number of his films. She also played small parts on Broadway, off-Broadway, and on TV, in addition to working as a film library archivist. Her most notable film role was in Paul Schrader's Blue Collar, in which she played Harvey Keitel's wife.

The first exhibit of Lucy Saroyan's posthumously discovered portraits of A-List Hollywood and New York entertainment figures of the 1970s and 1980s will open at the Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica on January 16, 2010. Her portrait of Dennis Hopper was included in the 2009 retrospective exhibit of Hopper's own photography in Paris and Australia.

She died in Thousand Oaks, California on April 11, 2003 at the age of 57 from cirrhosis of the liver caused by hepatitis C. Her mother died later the same year.
