Jacqueline Bisset: Born September 13, 1944, in England; named "Winifred Jacqueline Fraser Bisset".Jacqueline started modelling in London at age 18. She worked with some of the top photographers of the day: Terry Donovan, David Bailey, etc. She got her first unbilled bit part in Richard Lester's "The Knack...and How To Get It" (1965). She quickly moved on to small supporting roles (1967) and then bigger supporting roles in "big" movies, and starring roles in lesser movies (1968-69). She had two sudden bursts of fame: in 1968, because she replaced Mia Farrow in "The Detective", opposite Frank Sinatra; and in 1977, when her role in "The Deep" put her on magazine covers around the world.
