Joanna Roos (January 11, 1901 – May 13, 1989) was an American Broadway, radio, and television actress and a playwright. She was born in Brooklyn in 1901 and attended Syracuse University as well as Yvette Guilbert's School in New York and Paris.
In 1930 Roos performed the role of Sofya Alexandrovna in a classic performance of the Anton Chekhov play "Uncle Vanya" at the Cort Theatre in New York City, a production that one critic called "unforgettable". The show ran for seventy-one performances.
