Margaret "Meg" Mundy (born 4 January 1915) is an English-American actress. She was born in London, but moved to the United States in 1921.

Mundy is the daughter of the Australian opera singer Clytie Hine (1887 1983) who studied at the Elder Conservatorium of Music in Adelaide, South Australia. Hine married the English cellist and orchestra manager of The Metropolitan Opera, John Mundy, and they emigrated to the United States in 1921 with their two children, John and Margaret. After retiring as a performer, Clytie Hine coached opera singers and musical performers. Meg Mundy's brother was the Columbia University history professor (1917-2004).

In 1948 she starred in The Respectful Prostitute (see below), but Dorothy Parker professed ignorance: "Meg Mundy? What's that, a Welsh holiday?" She played "Mona Aldrich Croft", on The Doctors from 1971 until 1982, when the show was cancelled.

She lives in upstate New York.
