Nina Quartero (March 17, 1908 – November 23, 1985) was an American actress whose career spanned from 1929–43.


Born in 1908 in New York City, Quartero often playing supporting roles and sometimes a love interest for the lead male actor. In One Stolen Night (1928) Quartero was cast with Betty Bronson and William Collier. The story concerns a British World War I soldier who comes to the assistance of an enslaved dancer. In Frozen River (1929) she was paired with Raymond McKee as the motion picture's romantic leads.
