Liza Vorfi (29 November 1924 – 29 January 2011) was an Albanian stage actress and singer.


In 1932, Vorfi's family moved to Tirana, Albania from Gjakova (today's Kosovo). She started her artistic career in 1939 as a singer on Radio Tirana. Between 1939 and 1943, she studied in Italy in the Rome Conservatory and then she continued her studies in Pesaro. In 1945 she returned to Albania to appear on the stage as an actress.
