Lisa Marie Eilbacher (born May 5, 1956) is an American actress.
Lisa Marie Eilbacher was born on May 5, 1956 in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, the daughter of an American oil company executive. She was raised in France. Her sister Cindy is also an actress, best known for portraying Jerry Van Dyke's daughter on the series My Mother the Car.
Eilbacher started acting as a child, appearing on such shows as My Three Sons and Gunsmoke. She later made a transition into adult roles on such shows like The Amazing Spider-Man. Eilbacher is best known for her roles in two 1980s films: An Officer and a Gentleman and Beverly Hills Cop. In An Officer and a Gentleman, she played a Navy Aviation Officer Candidate who initially could not complete the obstacle course but persevered and triumphantly 'walked the wall' and graduated. An avid body builder in real life, Eilbacher said the hardest aspect of this role was "pretending" to be out of shape. In Beverly Hills Cop, she played Jenny Summers, a childhood friend of Eddie Murphy's character who reunited with him to solve the murder of a mutual friend.
Eilbacher was also featured in the 1983 miniseries The Winds of War, playing Madeleine Henry. Eilbacher starred as Callie Shaw in The Hardy Boys Mysteries in 1977. The same year she appeared in the episode "The Innocent" of the short-lived Logan's Run TV series. She also appeared in the 1974 television movie Bad Ronald, 1981's This House Possessed, and several other theatrical and television films and episodes of television series. This House Possessed reunited her with Parker Stevenson, with whom she had worked on The Hardy Boys Mysteries.
Eilbacher worked steadily through the 1980s and 1990s, though in recent years her appearances have been few.
Eilbacher is married to Bradford "Brad" May, whose work in photography and other behind-the-scenes areas of television and film has been considerable since the late 1970s. He directed Eilbacher in the 1986 The Twilight Zone episode "Nightsong".
