Mark Brodka and Mary Crosby Relationship | Mary Crosby Husband

Crosby got married to Mark Brodka in 1998 with whom she has two children. She was previously married to Eb Lottimer in 1978. They later divorced in 1989.

Mary Crosby Dallas

Mary played Kristin Shepard (Sue Ellen Ewing’s scheming sister) on the prime time soap opera Dallas from 1979 to 1981. She was further a guest appearance in 1991. Crosby’s character is perhaps best remembered for her part in the cliffhanger ending of the 1979–1980 season of Dallas, entitled “A House Divided”, that was resolved in the fourth episode of the following season, “Who Done It”. In that greatly watched episode, J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) was shot by an unknown assailant.

Viewers had waited all summer (and most of the fall due to a Hollywood actors’ strike) to learn whether J.R. would survive, and which of his many enemies was responsible. The question, “Who shot J.R.?”, was being asked in everyday conversations around the world in the summer of 1980.

Finally, Kristin Shepard was then revealed to have been the person who pulled the trigger in the classic “Who shot J.R.?” episode that aired on November 21, 1980. It was one of the highest-rated episodes of a TV show ever aired.

Her character, Kristin Shepard, then made an appearance on the Dallas spin-off series Knots Landing in 1980, before a brief return to Dallas in 1981. Once again the focus of a highly rated cliffhanger, it was revealed in the season opening episode on October 9, 1981 that it was Shepard’s body that was found floating in the Southfork Ranch swimming pool. Crosby returned for the final episode of Dallas in 1991, playing the same character in a vision experienced by J.R.

She then guest-starred on Hotel, The Love Boat, Murder, She Wrote, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Dream On, Beverly Hills, 90210, and also In the Heat of the Night.

Mary Crosby Interview


Intervewer: How did you get to be on Dallas?

Mary Crosby: I actually love the story of how I got there. The producers were replacing Colleen Camp, who I actually know, and I tried out with the rest of L.A. Now I don’t watch TV, I read books, so I didn’t know the show. They were interested in me but were worried that since I was Bing’s (Crosby) daughter, White Christmas, Minute Maid Orange Juice, that the general public wouldn’t but it. But they took a chance on me anyway.

Intervewer: Why did they replace Colleen Camp?

Mary Crosby: I don’t really know. It’s maybe not that she wasn’t good but that she wasn’t right for the part as they saw it develop. Dallas was not a hot show, so for everyone it was just another audition. For me to get on Dallas at that particular time, though, it was extraordinary.

Intervewer: When you started on the show in 1979 the ratings were average and within a season’s time it was the number one show in the country. What was it like to witness the transformation?

Mary Crosby: At the time I remember the big thing was “Hey, we broke a 29 share, this is great.” In retrospect I wasn’t seeing the changes that the audience was probably seeing.

Intervewer: Did you have any sense that the show was becoming a smash?

Mary Crosby: Now that I think of it, yes. When I was shooting Dallas the show didn’t have any money. Because they had no money we shot the exteriors in Dallas for 13 shows in a row. Then we went back to MGM in L.A. and shot the rest, so there was really no episode 12 or episode 13 because it was all done out of order. But when we got back to L.A. we knew something extraordinary was happening. That was when we broke the 29 share and things started to change.

Intervewer: Let me back up before Dallas. Is it true that you attended the University of Texas early?

Mary Crosby: Yes, I went when I was 15. My Mom taught me to read when I was 3. And I had enough credits to graduate high school when I was 15. It really wasn’t hard, actually; you just had to double up. I went to UT and became a drama major. I found pretty soon that I didn’t want to build sets, which is what you do as a drama major, but that I just wanted to act. So I left there after a year and became the youngest person accepted at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. Bill Ball ran it; it was amazing. Certain places have their time, and I was there when ACT was having its moment. I studied Transcendental Meditation and some other great subjects.

Intervewer: How long were you there?

Mary Crosby: 1 ½ years. Then my father died and I moved to Los Angeles.

Intervewer: Why did you choose the University of Texas?

Mary Crosby: It was my mother’s alma mater. It was that simple. I can say now that I absolutely did not plumb its riches when I was there, but I was very young. Also back in those days I don’t think UT was what it is now. Austin hadn’t gotten as hot as it did. But there was no way my parents were going to let me go away anywhere else. At least they knew what they were getting with Texas.

Intervewer: So you didn’t like the high school experience? I would think you would enjoy that time.

Mary Crosby: Yeah, I guess you’d think I was a cheerleader or something but I was kind of one of those outsiders. I was a hopeless tomboy who likes to read. Still am. I’m not anything like I am on TV.

The experience that had the most impact on my education was when I was 13 and lived with a family in Mexico for six months. This was a family with seven kids and I learned so much. I went because I was driving my mother crazy. (Laughs)

Intervewer: Where did you live growing up?

Mary Crosby: Outside San Francisco, a town called Hillsborough.
