Katrin Cartlidge (15 May 1961 – 7 September 2002) was an English actress. She first appeared on screen as Lucy Collins in the Liverpool soap opera Brookside from 1982 to 1988 and later became well known for her film work with directors such as Mike Leigh and Lars von Trier.
Cartlidge was born in London to an English father and a German Jewish refugee mother. She was educated at the Parliament Hill School for Girls in Camden.
Her work on Manchevski's Before the Rain, and on No Man's Land made her well known in the Balkans and Bosnia-Herzogovina. Sophie, in Mike Leigh's Naked, was her first leading role. Leigh and Cartlidge worked together twice more after Naked, on Career Girls, playing Hannah at both 20 and 30, and Topsy Turvy, playing a madame in the scene where Sullivan visits a Paris brothel.
She was due to play the lead role in Polish director Lech Majewski's 2004 film The Garden of Earthly Delights—that of an art historian dying of cancer—but she left shortly before production began.
Cartlidge died at age 41, due to complications from pneumonia and septicaemia, stemming from a pheochromocytoma.
