Cristina Galbo (born January 17, 1950) was an actress of some moderate fame in Europe during the late 1960s and early 1970s, who made a name for herself in film mostly for European horror vehicles.

Arguably her best role is as "Elizabeth Seccles", a boarding school girl having an affair with a married professor of Italian and gymnastics, in the 1972 Massimo Dallamano shocker What Have You Done to Solange?. A recent DVD release of her 1975 film The Killer Must Kill Again, the most notable work of Luigi Cozzi (a friend and associate of giallo film master Dario Argento) has presented her controversial work in that more obscure representative of the Italian horror genre.

Cozzi mentions on his DVD commentary for the film how Galbo was uncomfortable with the film's most disturbing scene, the killer's rape of her kidnapped and abused character. Galbo also has a significant role in another boarding school shocker, The House That Screamed, Narcisco Ibanez's 1969 Spanish film (La Residencia).
