Clare Coulter (born 1942) is a Canadian actress.[1] Although she has appeared in film, television and stage roles, she is most highly regarded for her stage work.[2] Her noted stage roles have included Eleanor in the original production of George F. Walker's Love and Anger,[3] the first English-language production of Michel Tremblay's Albertine in Five Times,[4] and a 2013 Harbourfront Centre production of King Lear in which she became one of relatively few women to have portrayed the title role.[5]

In film, she was a Genie Award nominee for Best Supporting Actress at the 4th Genie Awards in 1983 for By Design,[6] and a Canadian Screen Award nominee for Best Supporting Actress at the 6th Canadian Screen Awards in 2018 for Cross My Heart (Les Rois mongols).
