Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Mature, intelligent actress whose wide TV experience ranges from the jungle adventure "Born Free" to "The Tony Randall Show" to "Star Trek" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Muldaur's refined features, well-modulated alto voice and characteristic serenity have lent both a relaxed charm and moral fiber to her characters, though her work as bitchy lawyer Rosalind Shays on "L.A. Law" suggests another, largely untapped dimension. Despite several decades of work, Muldaur is best remembered by many as Sam's placid, witty girlfriend Chris on the long-running series "McCloud." Muldaur's first husband, actor James Mitchell Vickery, died in 1979.
