Lori Cardille is an American actress, best known for her lead role in George A. Romero's Day of the Dead. Her father, Bill "Chilly Billy" Cardille, appeared as a reporter in the original Night of the Living Dead.
She is well known for her role as Winter Austin #1 on the ABC soap opera The Edge of Night. She left that role because it reminded her of a past memory in which she was a victim of sexual abuse. She later joined the cast of the soap opera Ryan's Hope. She is the author of the book I'm Gonna Tell: ...an Offbeat Tale of Survival. Cardille has recently starred in a short horror film called The Three, which reunited her with her Day of the Dead co-star John Amplas. In the film, Amplas and Cardille play a pair of scientists, as they did in Day.
Her daughter is actress Kate Rogal.
