Fay Holden (September 26, 1893 – June 23, 1973), was a British-born American-based actress. She was known as Gaby Fay early in her career.

Born as Dorothy Fay Hammerton in Birmingham, England, she appeared in 46 films between 1935 and 1958, but is best known for her recurring role as Emily Hardy, Mickey Rooney's mother in the MGM Andy Hardy movie series.

Holden is also remembered for her performance as Hazel, the mother of Samson (Victor Mature), in Cecil B. DeMille's Samson and Delilah, in which she utters her character's most notable line: "He wants to marry a Philistine!"

She was married to David Clyde from 1914 until his death in 1945. She died in Los Angeles, California, aged 79, from cancer.
