Hilary Shepard (born Hilary Shapiro on December 10, 1959), alternately billed as Hilary Shepard Turner or Hilary Shapiro, made a guest appearance as aerobics instructor Yvonne in the Season 4 episode of The Golden Girls titled "Rites of Spring".

Born and raised in New York City, in the late 1980s, Shepard was a lead singer and percussionist in the short-lived all-girl group American Girls.[1]

When that group ended, she moved into acting. Appearing in numerous motion picture and television series, Shepard is best known for playing the character of the evil pirate queen, Divatox, in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie and after a maternity leave, returned to the role during the latter half of Power Rangers Turbo, replacing Carol Hoyt.

She also had two roles on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: the Benzite ensign Hoya and Lauren, one of the genetically enhanced humans.

She played Zena in the film Scanner Cop.

Shepard and actress Daryl Hannah co-created two board games, "Love It or Hate It" and "LIEbrary,"[1][2] the latter having been previewed by Hannah on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December 2005.
