Anna Lee (January 2, 1913 - May 14, 2004) was an English actress.
She was born Joan Boniface Winnifrith in Igtham, Kent, England, the daughter of a clergyman who encouraged her desire to act. She studied at the Royal Albert Hall, then debuted in 1932 with a bit part in the film His Lordship. When she and her husband, director Robert Stevenson, moved to Hollywood she became associated with John Ford, appearing in several of his movies, notably How Green Was My Valley and Fort Apache.
Lee made frequent appearances on television anthology series in the 1940s and 1950s, including Robert Montgomery Presents, The Ford Theatre Hour, Kraft Televison Theatre, Armstrong Circle Theatre and Wagon Train.
In later years, she became known to a new generation as the matriarch Lila Quartermaine on General Hospital and Port Charles.
On May 21, 2004, she was posthumously awarded a Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award; she was scheduled to receive the award for months, but she died before she could receive it. On July 16, 2004, General Hospital aired a tribute to Lee by holding a memorial service for her character.
