Helen Lynch (April 6, 1900 – March 2, 1965) was an American silent-film actress.

She was born in Billings, Montana where she was also raised. After winning a beauty contest conducted in her hometown, she soon went to movie studios and received little trouble gaining roles, starting out as an extra in 1918. She was chosen as one of thirteen WAMPAS Baby Stars in 1923. During her career, she was mostly cast in comedies.

She acted in a number of films throughout the 1920s and four small roles in the 1930s. It appears she returned one last time to the screen in the 1940 film Women Without Names.

She was married to actor Carroll Nye.

Lynch died in 1965 in Miami Beach, Florida.
