Branislav Lečić (Serbian Cyrillic: Бранислав Лечић; born 25 August 1955) is a Serbian actor, director, academic, writer, politician. Known for his versatile portrayals of emotionally vulnerable characters with strong senses of moral justice, Lečić rose to prominence for his role as the rebellious Crni in twelve-episode mini-series Sivi dom (1986).

Since his initial rise to fame, he has established himself as one of the most prolific Serbian actors of all time. He is further known for his role as Royal Army officer Radekić in Silent Gunpowder (1990), poet Aleksa Šantić in biopic television film Moj brat Aleksa (1991), literature professor Teodor Kraj in The Professional (2003) and eccentric captain Tasić in St. George Shoots the Dragon (2008). For his role in Silent Gunpowder, Lečić was awarded a Golden Arena for Best Actor and the Silver St. George Award for Best Actor at the 17th Moscow International Film Festival. His other notable starring film credits include My Uncle's Legacy (1988), Charuga (1991) and Labyrinth (2002).

Lečić has also done extensive stage work, winning many accolades and critical acclaim. He has been employed in the Yugoslav Drama Theatre ensemble as a drama champion, in which he achieved roles as Uncle Vanya and Hamlet. He also directs plays at his own LekArt Theatre and teaches diction and acting at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade.

Politically active, he served as the Minister of Culture and Media from 2001 to 2004.
