Partner: Macaulay Culkin (1998-2000)
Rachel Miner (born July 29, 1980 in New York City, New York) is a Broadway, film and television actress.
A third generation Miner in show business, she is the daughter of director/teacher Peter Miner and the granddaughter of director/producer Worthington Miner and actress Frances Fuller. She briefly came under the media spotlight for her two-year (1998-2000) marriage to actor Macaulay Culkin. The marriage was noted for the relatively young age at which the two were wed.

She's also playing in the 2007 television series Californication. Her part is a naughty secretary receiving the name Dani California, which is a reference to a character appearing in several songs by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Among her theatre credits are Jennifer in Laura Cahill's Naked Faith: The Way at Naked Angels in New York (1994), Margo in The Diary of Anne Frank on Broadway (1997), Rivkele in Donald Margulies' adaptation of Sholem Asch's God of Vengeance at ACT Theatre in Seattle (2000), Sandy in Rebecca Gilman's Blue Surge at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago (2001) and at The Public Theatre in New York (2002).
