Adrienne King (born July 21, 1962) is an American film, stage, and voice actress, and a visual artist. A child actor, King made her film debut as Melinda in the television feature Inherit the Wind (1965) before appearing in Between the Lines (1977), Saturday Night Fever (1977), and Hair (1979) in uncredited roles. She is best known for portraying Alice Hardy in Sean S. Cunningham's horror film Friday the 13th (1980), a role she later reprised in Steve Miner's sequel Friday the 13th Part II (1981) and James Sweet's fan film Jason Rising (2021).

After appearing in the first Friday the 13th film, King was stalked aggressively; although the man was eventually imprisoned, the experience prompted her to go into seclusion. King worked as a stunt performer and extra for the supernatural comedy film Ghostbusters (1984). She reemerged doing voice acting and dubbing in the early 1990's, providing looping voices for a wide range of films including, The Night We Never Met (1993), The Man Without a Face (1993), What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), The Good Son (1993), Wolf (1994), While You Were Sleeping (1994), Jerry Maguire (1996), and Titanic (1997).

In 2009, she made her first on-screen appearance in nearly three decades in the independent film, Psychic Experiment, followed by supporting parts in All American Bully (2011) and The Butterfly Room (2012). King is the narrator of the audiobook of Grady Hendrix's novel The Final Girl Support Group (2021).
