12 - Susan Bernard

Playmate of the Month December 1966. Susan Bernard (born February 11, 1948) was <i>Playboy</i> magazine's Playmate of the Month for its December 1966 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Mario Casilli.

Bernard was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Bruno Bernard, a celebrity photographer and Holocaust survivor, and Ruth Brand, a stage actress and director. Bernard was married and divorced twice. She has a son with her first husband, Jason Miller, an actor/playwright who died in 2001. Today, she lives in Los Angeles, runs a small business and is putting together a website to honor her father's work.

Bernard had a sporadic film and television career, appearing for one season of <i>General Hospital</i> in the late 1960s and in small parts in series television. In most of her work, she was credited as Sue Bernard.

She posed for <i>Playboy</i> while working on the Russ Meyer film <i>Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!</i>. She was believed to be the first Jewish Playmate of the month, though in recent years Cindy Fuller, Miss May 1959, has claimed that she was the first Jewish Playmate.
