Sandra Edwards (born March 12, 1938 in Los Angeles) is an American actress and model. She was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for the March 1957 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Peter Gowland. Her name is usually spelled Saundra Edwards.

In addition to her modeling career for Playboy and other men's magazines, Edwards, who is part Cherokee, was a showgirl in Las Vegas. Her acting credits - she was a contract player at Warner Bros. - including a few films and many more television roles in shows such as Hawaiian Eye and Maverick (her Maverick episode was "Holiday at Hollow Rock" with James Garner). She retired from show business in the 1960s.

Edwards married actor Tom Gilson on December 8, 1961 and had a son named Thomas S. Gilson Jr (born the same day). She separated from him in August 1962 after he became abusive, after which she moved in with her sister and brother-in-law. On October 6, 1962, Edwards killed Gilson with a shotgun blast through the heart after he broke into the house where she was staying. A coroner's jury later ruled the shooting as justifiable homicide.[1] The scandal, however, abruptly ended her acting career.
