Actress Lynne Moody was a Playboy Bunny in a Los Angeles club before breaking into acting in 1973 in the blaxploitation movie "Scream Blacula Scream. " Moody was featured in an episode of the hit comedy show "All in the Family," and in 1977, she landed the best role of her career: Irene Harvey in the monumental television mini-series "Roots," from the Alex Haley novel which explored slavery over multiple generations. Moody reprised her role in the mini-series' 1979 sequel, "Roots: The Next Generation," and then she moved into lighter material with a 10-episode stint on the spoof series "Soap." In the 1980s, Moody appeared on seven episodes of Steven Bochco's acclaimed cop drama "Hill Street Blues," and then switched to comedy again with the medical farce "E/R" (not to be confused with the George Clooney drama series). Moody then went into straight soap opera with several episodes on "Knots Landing" and a role on "General Hospital."
