Sándor Csányi (born 19 December 1975) is a Hungarian actor.

Csányi aimed to be an actor from an early age and was admitted into the Hungarian University of Theater and Film on his fourth attempt. In 2002, he became a member of the Radnóti Theatre in Budapest.

His earliest film role was lending his voice for the 1999 film Sitiprinc and he followed this up by starring in shorts Az Ember, akit kihagytak and uristen@menny.hu (god@heaven.hu) the following year. He then had small roles in a number of films until 2003 when he starred in Nimród Antal's critically acclaimed Kontroll. He has since become somewhat of a leading man in Hungarian cinema, starring in such films as Just Sex and Nothing Else, Rokonok and Children of Glory.

He was married to Hungarian actress Lia Pokorny who he has worked alongside on a number of films. They have one child, Mark (2003).
