Susan Anspach is an American actress who was born on November 23rd, 1942 in New York City. She grew up in Queens, and briefly studied music at the Catholic University of America before changing her focus to drama. After graduation, Anspach began auditioning for stage roles and enjoyed considerable success both on and off Broadway. Her breakout role was the female lead in the popular musical "Hair," and shortly afterwards she was cast in her first film, "Five Easy Pieces," which was released in 1970 and featured Jack Nicholson. Anspach claims that her son, Caleb Goddard, was fathered by Nicholson. The actress appeared in eight television movies, two television series and nineteen films. Anspach continued accepting theatrical roles even after she became a noted film actress; her greatest appearance in that regard was in "A View from the Bridge," an off-Broadway production in which John Voight, Dustin Hoffman and Robert Duvall also starred.
