Patricia Alma Hitchcock is an English actress and producer.

She was born in London, England, the only child of Alfred Hitchcock and Alma Reville.

After graduating from Marymount High School in Los Angeles in 1947, she attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and also appeared on the London stage. In early 1949, her parents arrived to make Stage Fright, Hitchcock's first feature motion picture in England since going to Hollywood. Patricia did not know she would have a walk-on in the movie until her parents arrived. Because she bore a resemblance to the star, Jane Wyman, her father asked if she would mind also doubling for Wyman in the scenes that required danger driving.

She had small roles in three of her father's movies, Stage Fright (1950), playing a jolly acting student named Chubby Bannister, one of Wyman's school chums, Strangers on a Train (1951), playing Barbara Morton, future sister-in-law of Farley Granger, and Psycho (1960), playing Janet Leigh's plain-Jane office-mate, Caroline, who generously offers to share tranquilizers that her mother gave her for her wedding night.

As well as appearing in ten episodes of her father's half-hour television program Alfred Hitchcock Presents Patricia worked on a few others, including Playhouse 90, which was live, directed by John Frankenheimer. Acting for her father, however, remained the high point of her acting career, which she interrupted to raise her children.

Patricia has three daughters from her marriage to Joseph E. O'Connell, Jr.: Mary Stone, Tere Carrubba, and Katie Fiala.
