Margaret Ann "Peggy" Lipton (August 30, 1946 – May 11, 2019) was an American actress, model, and singer. She made appearances in many of the most popular television shows of the 1960s before she landed her defining role as flower child Julie Barnes in the crime drama The Mod Squad (1968–1973), for which she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Drama in 1970.

After The Mod Squad, Lipton married producer Quincy Jones and began a 15-year hiatus from acting, in which she raised her two children, Kidada and Rashida Jones. She returned to acting in 1988, performing in many TV roles, including Norma Jennings in David Lynch's Twin Peaks.

Early life

Margaret Ann Lipton was born into an upper middle class Jewish family in New York City on August 30, 1946,[1][2][3][4][5] the daughter of artist Rita Benson (born Rita Hetty Rosenberg; 1912–1986) and corporate lawyer Harold Lipton (1911–1999).[6][7] Her paternal grandparents (surnamed Lipschitz) were from Russia, and her mother was born in Dublin, to parents from Latvia.[8][9][10] Lipton was raised on Long Island with her brothers, Robert, who became an actor, and Kenneth. She attended Lawrence Junior High School and the Professional Children's School.[11] Sexually abused by an uncle,[12] Lipton was a nervous and withdrawn child with a stutter so bad that she was sometimes unable to say her own name.[13] In 1964, the family moved to Los Angeles, where Lipton became what she called a "Topanga Canyon hippie" who explored meditation and yoga.[13]
