    Peggy Lipton Dead at 72

    https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...034137737.html


    Actress and former model Peggy Lipton, who shot to fame in the late 1960s on police series The Mod Squad, and later starred on David Lynch’s surreal cult favorite Twin Peaks, has died at 72 from cancer.



    Lipton’s daughters — Kidada Jones and Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones — from her marriage to music producer Quincy Jones confirmed her death to the L.A. Times on Saturday. “She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side,” the Jones sisters said in a statement. “We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her.”



    New York-born Lipton began her modeling career in her teens before turning her sights on television with small roles on Bewitched, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, and The Virginian. But it was her turn as Julie Barnes, the flower child turned undercover detective, on ABC’s counterculture crime drama The Mod Squad that brought Lipton national acclaim and launched her as a Hollywood “It” girl in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The show, which costarred Michael Cole and Clarence Williams III and ran for five seasons, earned the actress four Emmy nominations and the 1971 Golden Globe for best actress in a television drama.

    I was a big fan back in the day. RIP Peggy.

    Sadly we’re only going to lose more and more actors from that era

    I vaguely remember watching the Mod Squad but remember her most from Twin Peaks.
    RIP Peggy
