Fabijan Šovagović (born January 4th, 1932; died January 1st, 2001) was a Croatian actor.

Fabijan Šovagović was born in Ladimirevci near Valpovo. He began acting in his youth and from late 1950s he appeared in many films, becoming one of the most recognisable faces of Croatian (and former Yugoslav) cinema. He never became a star, but he built a reputation as one of the greatest character actors with memorable roles in many classic films and popular TV series. Matija Gubec, whom he played in 1975 film Seljačka buna is one of his rare starring roles.

Through the last years of his life Fabijan Šovagović struggled with aftermath of strokes. He died in Zagreb.
