Cybill Shepherd plays Phyllis Kroll.

Cybill Shepherd, former beauty queen and model, rebounded from a disastrous early career in motion pictures to become a highly respected television performer. Born on February 18, 1950 in Memphis, Tennessee, Shepherd won the 1966 Miss Teenage Memphis contest. Turning to modelling, Shepherd quickly became a success, being named the 1968 Model of the Year.

Shepherd was cast by Martin Scorsese in Taxi Driver (1976) and did quite well in the small role of the campaign worker dated by Robert De Niro.

She began an affair with fellow Memphis-dweller Elvis Presley, whose songs she used to sing along to on the radio as a young girl.

She took the lead in the tongue-in-cheek detective series "Moonlighting" (1985) . She won an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. But she had to share the spotlight with superstar-in-the-making Bruce Willis, her "Moonlighting" (1985) co-star, whom she detested.

She achieved her most sustained singular success as a comedienne in the situation comedy "Cybill" (1995), for which she was three times nominated for an Emmy as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
