Nina Rae Wayne (born September 18, 1943 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American actress.


She first appeared on the Tonight Show in October 1964. Wayne, the younger sister of fellow actress Carol Wayne,[1] started working in television in 1965, first appearing in twelve episodes of the series Camp Runamuck (as Caprice Yeudleman) and in an episode of Bewitched.

The first movie that she appeared in was 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 came in the 1972 TV supernatural drama The Night Strangler.

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