List of notable or famous Mormon celebrities, including actors, television presenters, dancers, hosts, singers and musicians. These entertainers, working in a variety of disciplines, media and formats, are all members in good standing of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and are considered practicing Mormons. Though some of them have openly discussed their Mormon beliefs and are closely associated with the religion (such as Donny and Marie Osmond of the singing Osmond family), many others are famous for their secular work and are not widely known as Mormon believers.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (sometimes known simply as the LDS Church or the Mormon Church) is the largest denomination in the "Latter Day Saint Movement" inspired by the message of Joseph Smith. The church currently claims 14.1 million adherents around the world, with 50,000 missionaries currently serving worldwide. The church models its teachings and organizations on Joseph Smith's original Church of Christ, founded in 1830.

The Mormon culture that inspired some of these artists is also distinctive in many ways, both because of the geographical center of Mormonism in the Intermountain West and the family-oriented worldview of the church itself.
