Cheryl Gates McFadden (born March 2, 1949) usually credited as Gates McFadden, is an American actress and choreographer. She played Dr. Beverly Crusher in the Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) television series and in four subsequent films.


McFadden was born in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. She attended Brandeis University graduating cum laude with a bachelor of arts in theatre arts. After graduating from Brandeis, she moved to Paris and studied theatre with actor Jacques Lecoq. She is of Lithuanian descent on her mother's side.
