Winifred Jacqueline Fraser-Bisset (born 13 September 1944 in Weybridge, Surrey), better known as Jacqueline Bisset, is an English film and television actress.

She began her film career in 1965, first coming to prominence in 1968 with roles in The Detective and Bullitt, receiving a Golden Globe nomination for "most promising newcomer" the same year. In the 1970s, she starred in several popular films, perhaps most famously The Deep (1977), which featured Bisset in one of the most iconic examples of Sexy Soaked Shirt.

She is of French, English and Scottish descent, and was born in England but had a French mother and went to school in France. As a result she was fluent in both English and French and sometimes starred in French movies, like Day for Night and Le Magnifique.

She was nominated for a Golden Globe several times through her career, finally winning it (for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film) for the BBC miniseries Dancing on the Edge (2013).
