Biography by Hal Erickson

A professional model since her teens, Shelley Hack made her film bow in Woody Allen's Annie Hall (1977). She's the blonde passerby on the street who confesses to Woody that she's too shallow to understand what he's saying. We heard (and saw) a lot more from Hack when, in 1979, she replaced Kate Jackson on the long-running TV jigglefest Charlie's Angels. Shelley played Tiffany Welles for a single season, until she herself was replaced by Tanya Roberts. Shelley Hack survived on screen a lot longer than many people would have predicted back in 1980, co-starring in the TV weeklies Cutter to Houston (1983) and Jack and Mike (1986-87), and delivering an excellent performance in Martin Scorcese's controversial theatrical film King of Comedy (1982).
