Life and career
Gibb grew up in Westport, Connecticut, and got her big break at the age of 14 when she was discovered by the Eileen Ford Agency in New York City. She was on the cover of Vogue and Young Miss. Woody Allen saw her in one of those magazines and cast her in her first film role in his 1980 movie Stardust Memories.
Gibb is well known for her role on the soap opera Search for Tomorrow as Susan Martin Wyatt Carter from 1981 to 1983. She was also a regular for three seasons on the original Fame TV show and appeared in the first three Diagnosis: Murder movies in 1992 as Dr. Amanda Bentley. In the TV adaptation of Gypsy, for which she was nominated for Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television Film, she starred as the adult Rose Louise/Gypsy Rose Lee, opposite Bette Midler as Mama Rose.
She later starred in the 1995 short lived TV series Deadly Games. She has also played in many TV movies, including the role of Karen Carpenter in The Karen Carpenter Story (1989). She played Mary Maloney opposite John Schneider in Mary Christmas.
