Kim Darby (born 8 July 1947; age 74) is the actress who played Miri in the Star Trek: The Original Series first season episode "Miri" when she was in her late teens in 1966. Her shapeless costume was intended to hide her figure, since she was playing a younger girl. Darby filmed her scenes between Monday 22 August 1966 and Tuesday 30 August 1966 at Desilu Stage 9, Stage 10, and at the 40 Acres backlot.

Darby began working at age fifteen, and has worked steadily since. Probably her most famous role is that of Mattie Ross, from the John Wayne film True Grit (1969, with John Fiedler, Alfred Ryder, Jeff Corey, and Ron Soble).

She is also known for her performance as Debra Strode in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995, with Mitchell Ryan, J.C. Brandy, George Wilbur, Alan Echeverria, and music by Alan Howarth).
