Another Night Court alum has gone on to the big courthouse in the sky...

Quote
Markie Post, the actress known for turns in Night Court, The Fall Guy, Hearts Afire and more, died on Saturday, following a three year, ten month battle with cancer. She was 70.

Her first acting credits came in 1979, with appearances on episodes of CHiPs, Barnaby Jones, The Incredible Hulk, The Lazarus Syndrome, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and Hart to Hart.

She’d later appear in series such as The Love Boat, Cheers, Fantasy Island and The A-Team, before landing the role of bail bondswoman Terri Michaels in ABC’s The Fall Guy. She appeared in 65 episodes of that action drama between 1982 and 1985.

Post was also a series regular on NBC’s Night Court, portraying public defender Christine Sullivan for 159 episodes between 1985 and 1992. She also drew notice with her turn as Georgie Anne Lahti Hartman in Hearts Afire, the CBS sitcom, in which she starred opposite John Ritter.

RIP Markie Post.  :(

Oh God was she hot on Night Court.  She had done a lot of work on game shows too, including as a producer!  She got her Bachelor of Arts degree in my hometown of Portland OR (Lewis & Clark College).

I had a huge crush on her on Night Court when I was in high school. Rest in peace.

She was so damn cute on "Night Court," and she also had the comedic chops to hold her own in a cast that included John Larroquette and Harry Anderson. Respect.

R.I.P. ma'am.

Even her small part in There's Something About Mary (1998) was a golden performance. She looked like she hadn't aged a day in that movie, and she was perfect opposite Keith David.  Cheers

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
