Eric Schepard (1925 - February 27, 1991)

Eric Schepard, a theatrical agent for more than 35 years, died on February 27, 1991, at Lenox Hill Hospital. He was 66 years old and lived in Manhattan.

He died of AIDS, said his lawyer, Marc H. Glick.

After a career as a dancer and choreographer, Mr. Schepard went to work as an agent at M.C.A. in 1955. Since 1964, he had worked for the Ashley Famous Agency, which became I.C.M. In the course of his work he represented Burt Reynolds, Faye Dunaway, Jon Voight, Dyan Cannon, Chita Rivera, Constance Towers and Christopher Walken. At the time of his death his clients included Alexis Smith, Tommy Tune, Lucy Arnaz, John Cullum and the choreographers Lynne Taylor-Corbett, Thommie Walsh and Tony Stevens.

His companion was David Fausett.
