Lifetime actresses and actors have been in everything from current blockbuster films to your favorite '80s and '90s movies, while also adding a Lifetime movie or two to their filmography.

This list of Lifetime actors is ordered by how many Lifetime original movies and Lifetime Movie Network films each actor has been in. Actors like Megan Park, Colin Ferguson, Wendy Crewson, and Rick Roberts are regular Lifetime movie actors and actresses, working in multiple films over the years. Even actors such as Colin Firth, Dean Cain, and Caroline Rhea have been in multiple movies from Lifetime.
