Lisa Maxwell (born 24 November 1963 in Elephant and Castle, London) is an English actress. She is engaged to sculptor Paul Jessup and has one child, a daughter named Beau.

She trained at the Italia Conti Academy. She first acted on TV aged 11 in a schools programme "A Place Like Home", shortly before breaking both arms in a fall. In 1981 she participated in BBC TV's "A Song for Europe", as a member of the group Unity. She finished in last place with the song "For Only a Day." Her first senior role was in "Remembrance" (1982), and in the same year she voiced Kira in the Jim Henson film "The Dark Crystal". In 1985, she won a TV vote to become a presenter on BBC2 pop music show "No Limits". The other winning presenter was Jeremy Legg.

She then went on to become a presenter on a number of children's programmes, getting her own short-lived TV show, the "Lisa Maxwell Show" on BBC television in 1991. In 1993 she was cast as Daphne Moon in "Frasier", but after disagreements with the producers, she was replaced by Jane Leeves, who went on to be the highest-paid English TV actor in Hollywood.

She currently stars as Detective Inspector Samantha Nixon in the ITV1 drama "The Bill", a part she has played since 2002.

In 2006 she was a speaker at a charity dinner in the City of London.
