Paula Marshall is an inoffensive brunette actress known largely for dooming any show she's on to quick cancellation. Previous series that quickly plunged into obscurity following her casting include: Cupid, Snoops, Sports Night, Cursed, Just Shoot Me, Hidden Hills and Miss Match. A vigil is currently being held for Out of Practice.

Ted McGinley routinely sends her thank-you notes for removing the taint of "show killer" from his public profile.

The current understudy for the showkiller role is Chyler Leigh.
