Profile Bio Text
Laurie Bird (September 26, 1953 – June 15, 1979) was an American actress and photographer.
Bird`s mother died when she was three. Her father was ex-United States Navy and worked long hours. Although she had two brothers, she more or less raised herself.
She appeared in just three films: Two-Lane Blacktop (1971), Cockfighter (1974), and a small role in Annie Hall (1977). Bird shot the cover photo for Art Garfunkel`s Watermark album in 1978, and was the still photographer on Cockfighter. She was romantically involved with her Blacktop and Cockfighter director Monte Hellman, and later with Garfunkel for several years.
In 1979, Bird committed suicide in the apartment she shared with Garfunkel in New York. At Bird`s funeral, her father revealed her mother`s death, which was thought to be from ovarian cancer, was also a suicide.
In 2006 she appeared in a documentary Wanderlust with many other well known people.
