Paula Marshall Biography

Home > Actresses > M > Marshall, Paula > Biography

Birth Name: Paula Marshall
Born: 06/12/1964
Birth Place: Rockville, Maryland, USA

She had marginally better luck starring as Jason Bateman's love interest in the Windy City-set "Chicago Sons" (NBC, 1997), although that sitcom too suffered an early demise. A recurring role as a love interest to Michael J Fox on the ABC sitcom "Spin City" followed later that year. During the 1998-99 season, Marshall starred opposite Jeremy Piven on the series "Cupid", playing a New York City psychiatrist and a man who believes he is Cupid respectively. While the program won critical notice and built up a core fan base, it failed to thrive in its various timeslots, and was unceremoniously canceled by the network just short of Valentine's Day 1999. Marshall and Piven had an interesting chemistry, and the actress gave a likable performance as the strong-willed but conflicted character. The following season, she could be seen on David E Kelley's "Snoops" (ABC, 1999-2000), playing a police detective turned P.I. alongside Gina Gershon and Paula Jai Parker in this quirky and promising comedy-infused crime drama.

Like many actors, Marshall began her film career in the horror genre, appearing in the uninspired sequels "Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth" (1992). and "Warlock: The Armageddon" (1993) before landing the plum role of Peter Weller's mistress in the satire "The New Age" (1994). She followed up with an appearance as Robert Duvall's daughter in the heartwarming, racially-themed feature "A Family Thing" (1996), and was cast as the daughter of Bette Midler and Dennis Farina in "That Old Feeling" (1997). Midler chose Marshall for the role of a bride-to-be whose wedding brings together her divorced parents after admiring her performance on the famed "Seinfeld" episode. She was next featured in the violent 1998 independent "Thursday", as the wife of a reformed drug dealer (Thomas Jane) whose past catches up with him.
