Marcia Rodd (born July 8, 1940) is an American actress.

Rodd was born in Lyons, Kansas, the daughter of Rosetta (née Thran) and Charles C. Rodd. She studied drama at Northwestern University.

In the 1950s, she moved to New York City and performed on stage. Rodd spent the 1960s appearing on Broadway in such plays as Neil Simon's The Last of the Red Hot Lovers. In 1971, she appeared in the drama film T.R. Baskin with Candice Bergen and the black comedy Little Murders opposite Elliott Gould.

During the 1970s, she appeared in several films and made-for-television productions, and continued making appearances on television shows through the next three decades. One of these appearances was as Carol Traynor, the role later played by actress Adrienne Barbeau in an episode of All in the Family which was the pilot for the subsequent series, Maude.

She also made an appearance on the series M*A*S*H as Captain Lorraine Anderson, a nurse who was a former classmate of Major Margaret Houlihan (Loretta Swit). Anderson accompanied Roy Dupree (George Lindsey) during a staff switch, in which she reestablished ties with Margaret and became friends with Major Charles Emerson Winchester III.

Her most recent role was in a 2003 episode of the television series Without a Trace.
