Marshall rose to fame to play Laverne DeFazio at “Laverne & Shirley”, which was a spin-off of “Happy days.” The Screwball comedy series ran from 1976 to 1983. The performance, created by her late brother, Garry Marshall, followed the antics of two blue-eyed women who worked as bottlecappers at a Milwaukee factory.

After the series ended, Marshall made a successful transition to govern. She was the strength of critically acclaimed box office hits like “Big”, “A League of Their Own” and “Awakenings.”
