Margaret Ann "Peggy" Lipton (born August 30, 1946) is an American actress and former model. She was an overnight success and is best known for her role as flower child Julie Barnes in the counterculture TV show The Mod Squad (1968–73). Appearing in numerous TV series since her noted role as Norma Jennings in David Lynch's surreal Twin Peaks, Lipton has had a more than 40-year career in television, film, and stage.
She was married to the musician and producer Quincy Jones. She is mother to their two daughters, Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones, who have become actresses.
Lipton's modeling career and instant fame on The Mod Squad brought her the attentions of many famous men, including Paul McCartney, Terence Stamp, his brother Chris, Keith Moon, Elvis Presley, and others. During the late 60s-early 70s she had relationships with a series of alcoholic, abusive, and/or married men. During this time, she also used drugs. Lipton covered some of this period in her memoir Breathing Out (2005), co-written by David and Coco Dalton. She revealed that she had been diagnosed with colon cancer in 2004 and treated for it. Starting in 2003, Jack Chartier, chief of staff to the New York state comptroller, quietly funneled pension fund money of up to $90,000 to Lipton to help her with rent and hospital bills. Another $44,000 in pension fund money was invested in a business venture by one of Lipton's daughters.
