Excerpt from Jewel Shepard’s “Mini Bio” on iMDB, written by “woodyanders”

Jewel began her acting career with minor parts in the enjoyably lowbrow pictures Kung Fu Cannibals (1982), Zapped! (1982), The Junkman (1982) and My Tutor(1983).

Shepard gave an excellent and spirited performance as the sassy and sarcastic “Casey” in the fantastic horror zombie comedy treat The Return of the Living Dead (1985). She was likewise quite funny and appealing as the endearingly vacuous “Crystal Landers” in both Hollywood Hot Tubs (1984) and Hollywood Hot Tubs 2: Educating Crystal (1990).

Other memorable roles are luscious wealthy playgirl “Christina” in the steamy late night cable-TV soft-core favorite Christina (1984) (aka “Christina”), the sexy “Dyanne Stein” in the amusing Party Camp (1987), ditsy prostitute “Wanda” in Roots of Evil (1992) and feisty prisoninmate “Amanda” in the sleazy babes-behind-bars opus Caged Heat II: Stripped of Freedom (1994).

More recently, Jewel popped up in a small part as a hooker in the terrific independent movie The Cooler (2003), and most recently been spotted as the “Flapper Starlet” in the 2012 Academy Award Best Picture winner, The Artist. (2102).
