More Cybill Shepherd Bios & Profiles
Biography #2Cybill Shepherd is an American actress, born 18 February 1950, Memphis, Tennessee. Shepherd's career as a model started in her teens. Director Peter Bogdanovich spotted her on the cover of a magazine and gave her a role in The Last Picture Show (1971); after several films the next big step was Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976). Her later films were less successful.
In the 1980s she starred opposite Bruce Willis in the television series Moonlighting (1985-89), a lighthearted combination of mystery and comedy.
In the 1990s she starred in Cybill, a television sitcom in which the title character was roughly modelled on herself: an actress struggling with hammy parts in B movies and bad soaps.
