Andrea King (February 1, 1919April 22, 2003) was born Georgette André Barry in Paris, France was an American film actress. At two months old she moved with her mother to the United States. She was raised in Forest Hills, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida.

She appeared in Broadway plays and other theater work before appearing in The March of Time's first feature-length film entitled "The Ramparts We Watch" (1940). In 1944, she signed with Warner Bros. and changed her stage name to King (some of her early movies have her credited as "Georgette McKee" - her stepfather's name). King appeared uncredited in the Bette Davis film, "Mr. Skeffington" (1944). She appeared in ten movies in three years from 1944 – 1946. King was originally cast to play Dr. Lilith Ritter in Edmund Goulding's film noir classic "Nightmare Alley", but had to choose between that movie and another noir, the one she chose was a memorable role as sophisticated Marjorie Lundeen in "Ride the Pink Horse".

The Warner Bros. studio photographers voted Andrea the most photogenic actress for the year 1945. In the 1960s and 1970s, most of her acting work was on television.
