Beverley Owen (née Ogg, sometimes credited as Beverly Owen) (May 13, 1937 in Ottumwa, Iowa) is a classically-trained American actress perhaps most widely known for having played the original role of Marilyn Munster during the first season of The Munsters. However, she disliked the role and only accepted out of contractual obligations to Universal Studios. After 13 episodes, Owen left the program to get married, and was replaced in the role by second portrayer Pat Priest. Beginning in 1971 she appeared for two years on Another World, after which she retired from television and chose to perform exclusively in live theatre.

A student of Sanford Meisner, Owen now lives in Upstate New York, where she frequently appears with the Cambridge Theatre Company, which is the company at Hubbard Hall, in Cambridge, New York. She received an undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan. She continues to pursue her studies in Early American History, for which she earned her master's degree, in 1989.
