  Summary  

Shelley Marie Hack is an American supermodel, actress, producer, and political & media advisor. Hack is best remembered for her role as Tiffany Welles in the fourth season of the ABC Television Drama Charlie's Angels (1979-1980); replacing the departing Kate Jackson. Hack appeared in a total of twenty-five episodes of the series, before being replaced in season five by model-actress, Tanya Roberts.

  Biography  

Hack was born in White Plains, New York and raised in nearby Greenwich, Connecticut. She graduated from Greenwich Academy and Smith College, the latter with a history degree. She began her career as a teen fashion model and became the face of Revlon's Charlie perfume in the mid 1970s, which gave her national exposure on television. In October 1981, Life magazine proclaimed her one of the million-dollar faces in the beauty industry.

Her feature film debut was in Woody Allen's award winning film Annie Hall , as "Street Stranger." She is perhaps best known for her role as Tiffany Welles in the television series Charlie's Angels for one season (1979–80). Unfortunately, the series experienced a significant ratings decline during Hack's time on the show, and the actress was dismissed in early 1980. Afterwards, Hack stated, "A business decision was made. Change the time slot or bring in some publicity. How to get publicity? A new Angel hunt. Who is the obvious person to replace? I am - the new kid on the block."

Following Hack's involuntary departure from Charlie's Angels, the actress played a variety of supporting roles, such as in Martin Scorsese's film The King of Comedy . She starred with Annette O'Toole and Meredith Baxter Birney in Vanities , a television production of the comedy-drama stage play about the lives, loves and friendship of three Texas cheerleaders starting from high school to post-college graduation; it aired as a part of Standing Room Only, a series on the premium-television channel HBO. She had a leading role in the cult horror film The Stepfather and was a regular on two short-lived TV series of the 1980s: Cutter to Houston and Jack and Mike (1986–87). She had several guest appearances in film and television up until 1997, when she unofficially retired from acting.

In 2000, Hack become founder and president of Shelley Hack Media Consultancy , a company which internationally specializes in projects that focus on the intersection between media and the development of civil society. Hack worked extensively in the Balkans and Western Asia.

In January 2008, Hack made an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. The episode, "Classic Americana", featured Hack as the Charlie perfume model in a 1976 television ad with Bobby Short at the piano. "It was a time when women were changing" Hack stated to Oprah Winfrey. "Women looked at and said, 'I want to be like that.'" Referring to the later Revlon commercials and Charlie's Angels, Hack stated "I was lucky. There were two things I was in that were about making women feel a little more empowered".

Hack and her husband, Harry Winer are company principals for the production company, Smash Media ("Entertainment That Brings People Together") that develops and produces content for motion pictures, television and new media. Smash Media was established in 2010 and is based in Los Angeles.

Hack and Winer have one daughter, named Rose.
