Nina Rae Wayne (born September 18, 1943) is a former American actress.


Wayne, the younger sister of fellow actress Carol Wayne, started working in television in 1965, first appearing in twelve episodes of the series Camp Runamuck and in an episode of Bewitched.

The first movie in her career that she appeared in was in Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round. She was reportedly cast in Fantastic Voyage, but the lead female role ultimately went to Raquel Welch, launching her successful movie career. But Wayne's big movie break came when she starred opposite Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk in the 1967 romantic comedy Luv. She followed this up with an appearance in The Comic (1969) with Dick Van Dyke and Mickey Rooney. Her last appearance in her career came in the 1972 TV crime drama The Night Strangler.

In 1974, she appeared on the cover of TV Guide.
