TRACY REED

Actress Tracy Reed was born October 28, 1949 in Fort Benning, Georgia. Leading lady Tracy Reed received her first major professional break when she was hired as one of the ensemble players for the 1969 TV anthology Love, American Style.

This led to Reed’s being cast as Corey Bratter in the all-black, weekly-series version of Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park (1970). Two decades later, she co-starred as Charlotte Anderson in Knot’s Landing (1990-91).

In between her series assignments, Tracy Reed appeared in several theatrical and made-for-TV movies; she owns the dubious distinction of having played opposite both Bill Cosby (in 1978’s Top Secret) and O.J. Simpson (in 1983’s Cocaine and Blue Eyes). Tracy Reed should not be confused with the British actress of the same name. According to Bing.
