Peggy Pope (born May 15, 1929) is an American actress.

She was born in Montclair, New Jersey. She has made her many acting appearances memorable—even in the smallest roles—beginning in 1966 with the television show The Trials of O'Brien, starring Peter Falk and Elaine Stritch.

Pope is most recognizable as "the office lush" (and later, recovered alcoholic) Margaret Foster in the 1980 movie 9 to 5 starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dabney Coleman. She also had a small role as Elvira in the 1984 science fiction movie The Last Starfighter. A year later, she appeared in Once Bitten as Mark Kendall's mother.

She appeared in the rotating cast of the Off-Broadway staged reading of Wit & Wisdom.[1] Pope won an Obie Award for Best Actress in 1968 for her performance in Muzeeka.

A familiar face to television, she has guest starred on numerous high-profile series, including Bewitched, Hart to Hart, Eight is Enough, Barney Miller, Soap, The Golden Girls, Hope & Faith and Law & Order.
