Cassandra Harris (15 December 1952  – 28 December 1991) was an Australian actress.

Born Sandra Colleen Waites in Sydney, Australia , Harris was a student of NIDA acting school from 1960 to 1963 and performed in the successful Sydney stage production of Boeing Boeing from 1964 to 1965. She appeared in The Greek Tycoon (1978), Rough cut (1980), and the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only as the Countess Lisl von Schlaf, the ill-fated mistress of Milos Colombo (played by Israeli actor Topol). While she was filming this movie, her third husband, Pierce Brosnan, met James Bond series producer Albert R. Broccoli, which eventually led to his casting as the new James Bond with starring roles in four James Bond films.

She guest starred in several episodes of the television series Remington Steel ewith her husband Brosnan, to whom she was married from 1977 until her death in Los Angeles, California from ovarian cancer at the age of 39.

She had three children -- Christopher and Charlotte Harris, from her second marriage to Dermot Harris— a younger brother of the late actor, Richard Harris -- and son Sean Brosnan, from her third marriage to Pierce. Christopher and Charlotte were adopted by Brosnan after Dermot Harris's death in 1986. Harris had allegedly always wanted to see her husband portray James Bond, but her death occurred prior to his selection for the role in "GoldenEye."
