June Neethling (b. 1933) was an actress.


June Rose Hollstrom was born in Cape Town on 16 June 1933 to Charles Phillip Hollstrom and his wife Rose Mary Cyster. In 1954 she married Henry Neethling in London, where her husband-to-be had studied economics. She became an actress relatively late in life and by the time her first film came out in September 1963, she had already given birth to five children. She maintained that for her acting was a hobby rather than a profession and that her family was the priority in her life. Nevertheless she acted in a range of films (sometimes uncredited), four of them directed by David Millin. Her stage appearances were infrequent, but she had roles in Andorra (1964) and an Afrikaans version of Equus (1980), both of them produced by Mario Schiess, who had also directed her in the film Onwettige Huwelik (1970). Reported stage appearances in Amphitryon 38, Twelfth Night and The Maids could not be verified.
