Pamela Salem (born 22 January 1950) is a British film and television actress.

She was born in Bombay, India, and educated at Heidelberg University in Germany and later at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London, England. She is best-remembered on television for her co-starring role in the early 1980s ITV children's fantasy series "Into The Labyrinth" as the evil witch Belor, and her late 1980s guest role in the BBC's popular soap opera "EastEnders" as shady mafia affiliate Joanne Francis. She has also been seen in two separate adventures of the BBC's long-running science-fiction series "Doctor Who": as Toos in "The Robots of Death" (1977) and as Professor Rachel Jensen in "Remembrance of the Daleks" (1988). She was also heard as one of the many voices of Xoanon in "The Face of Evil" (1976). She had previously auditioned for the role of the Fourth Doctor's companion Leela, but the role eventually went to Louise Jameson instead. Salem also had a recurring role in the British sitcom "French Fields" between 1989-91.

Other television guest appearances have included roles in popular American and British series such as "The West Wing", "Party of Five", "ER", "Out of the Unknown", "Blake's 7", "The Professionals", "Magnum P.I.", "Howard's Way", and "All Creatures Great and Small".

In film, she played the role of Miss Moneypenny in the 'unofficial' 1983 James Bond film "Never Say Never Again", starring Sean Connery. She also appeared in Michael Crichton's "The Great Train Robbery" (1979, another film which also starred Connery), as well as a supporting role in "The Bitch" (1979) and "Gods and Monsters" (1998).

She is married to the actor Michael O'Hagan.
