May Wynn (born January 8, 1928) is an American dancer, singer, and actress.

She was born as Donna Lee Hickey, and began performing under that name at New York's Copacabana nightclub in 1947, when she was seventeen. In 1954, she adopted the stage name of May Wynn[1] after she played a character of this name in The Caine Mutiny.

Wynn later was cast as the lead actress in the 1956 feature films The Man Is Armed and The White Squaw, and in the Jack Webb-created NBC television series, Noah's Ark, in which she played opposite Paul Burke in the title role of Dr. Noah McCann and the older Victor Rodman as Dr. Sam Rinehart. In 1959 she guest starred on Perry Mason as Donna Sherwood in "The Case of the Glittering Goldfish."

In 1956, she and actor Jack Kelly, whom she played opposite in They Rode West, Taming Sutton's Gal and Hong Kong Affair, wed. They divorced in 1964.[2]
