Margaret Ann "Peggy" Lipton was born on Aug. 30, 1946, in New York City, NY. Upon moving with her family to Los Angeles in 1964, a teenage Lipton kicked off what would become a long career on the small screen. Her earliest roles took form as one-off appearances on sitcoms like "Bewitched" (ABC 1964-1972) and "The John Forsythe Show" (NBC 1965-66). After only a few short years playing minor roles, Lipton landed a starring position on the crime drama series "The Mod Squad" (ABC 1968-1973). Lipton played Julie Barnes, runaway-turned-undercover cop and one third of an elite crime-fighting troupe completed by Clarence Williams III and Michael Cole. Alongside her role on the show, Lipton made her film debut in the western "Blue" (1968), and also pioneered a singing career. She turned out an eponymous album in 1968, as well as additional successful numbers like "Wear Your Love Like Heaven" (1970). In 1974, after the conclusion of "The Mod Squad," Lipton married renowned musician and record producer Quincy Jones Jr., subsequently withdrawing from acting in order to raise a family. She gave birth to fashion designer Kidada Jones that same year, and actress and writer Rashida Jones in 1976. Lipton returned to television upon accepting a role in David Lynch's paranormal mystery drama series "Twin Peaks" (ABC 1990-91); she played acerbic diner owner Norma Jennings and star-crossed love interest of Everett McGill's character Big Ed. Following the short but resonant run of the program, Lipton appeared in films like "The Postman" (1997), "Jackpot" (2001), and "When in Rome" (2010). She also appeared on daughter Rashida Jones' comedy series "Angie Tribeca" (TBS 2016-19), playing her mother, Peggy Tribeca. After returning to her role as Norma Jennings in the revival of "Twin Peaks" (Showtime 2017), Lipton appeared in the film "A Dog's Purpose" (2017), her final screen role. Peggy Lipton died of colon cancer on May 11, 2019 at the age of 72.
