Cara Pifko (born March 15, 1976 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian actress known primarily for her work on television shows produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

A graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, she started acting at the age of 8 and worked all through the nineties, but it was in 2000 that she landed her first starring role, in the series Our Hero, which was aimed at young teens.

In 2004 she showed her dramatic range by appearing as a foreign aid worker in the acclaimed mini-series Human Cargo. Pifko then landed the lead role in the legal drama This is Wonderland, which garnered her a Gemini Award in 2005 for best actress. She recently made her return to acting, joining the soap opera General Hospital as the recurring character of Louise Addison. In early 2006, she appeared as Isolda in Tarragon Theatre's production of Léo. In 2007 she starred in the Lifetime TV movie I Me Wed.

In 2010 Cara lent her voice to Suu, a pink Twi'lek in the "Deserter" episode, and as scientist Sionver Boll in "The Zillo Beast" and "The Zillo Beast Strikes Back" episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She also voiced Yeoman Kelly Chambers in the video games Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
