Cult Actors: Donna Wilkes

"Good. Then I'll see ya at the dock at eight."
Until a few years ago, Donna Wilkes was something of a mystery. Donna shot to fame as Jackie Peters, "the chick who won’t stop screaming” in Jaws 2 (1978). She then guest starred in just about every TV series known to man before immortalizing herself in Angel (1984), starring as a “high school honor student by day, Hollywood hooker by night.” 

Then, she vanished! Or, she didn't vanish so much as she just stopped acting in films for a while.
