18/02/1950 Moonlighting star Cybil Sheppard is born

Cybill Lynne Shepherd is an American actress, singer, and former model. Shepherd's better-known roles include Jacy in The Last Picture Show, Kelly in The Heartbreak Kid and Betsy in Taxi Driver. According to Shepherd's autobiography, a 1970 Glamour magazine cover caught the eye of film director Peter Bogdanovich. His then-wife, Polly Platt, claimed that when she saw the cover in a check-out line in a Ralphs grocery store in southern California, she said "That's Jacy", referring to the role Bogdanovich was casting—and ultimately given to Shepherd—in The Last Picture Show.
