Linda Geiser (born 13 May 1935) is a Swiss film and television actress best known for her role in the Swiss TV series Lüthi und Blanc as Johanna Blanc.

Having attended acting school and learned English in Berne, Geiser moved to America in 1961 and lived in New York, where she established herself in theatre. In 1964, she made a controversial appearance in Sidney Lumet's The Pawnbroker by playing a scene in which she fully exposed her breasts. At the time, this contravened the Motion Picture Production Code and it was one of the earliest instances of a nude scene in a mainstream film.
