Rosalind Shays, ‘L.A. Law’

Next Previous

Diana Muldar joined the cast of L.A. Law in the fourth season as Rosalind Shays, the assertive new lawyer, or as the actress called her character, “everybody’s favorite person to dislike.” She brought plenty of fire to the show: the moment when Shays ends up in bed with her enemy, Leland McKenzie, is ranked by EGG magazine as the 38th-greatest moment in television history. Although Shays was locked in a battle that nearly destroyed the firm, she was taken down by the firm’s building itself—literally. Shays fell into an open elevator shaft and plunged to her death. Viewers were not the only ones shocked by Shays’s death: Muldar said she was surprised to see her character’s death, and even wondered if she had “maybe asked for too much money!”
