Rimma Vasilievna Markova is a Russian film actress. She was named a People's Artist of Russia in 1994, whereas her younger brother Leonid Markov was named a People's Artist of the USSR in 1985.

During her childhood, 1931–1934, Rimma Markova played minor roles in Saratov Dramatic Theatre, where her father was working. In 1945–1947, Rimma Markova studied at the school affiliated with the Vologda Dramatic Theatre with her brother Leonid. She appeared in small but memorable parts in numerous Soviet films.

Markova's public profile increased in the early 21st century. She began appearing regularly on Russian TV shows and campaigned enthusiastically for the Fair Russia political party during the 2011 legislative elections.
