A skillful redheaded comedic actress, Amy Yasbeck was featured as a child on the packaging of the Betty Crocker Easy-Bake Oven. Quickly booking a slew of TV and film credits, Yasbeck took over Daryl Hannah's mermaid role for "Splash, Too" (ABC, 1988) but made a bigger impression as Jason Alexander's sharp-tongued wife in "Pretty Woman" (1990). Her top-notch comic skills were on deliciously bitchy display when she played the shrewish Flo, wife of John Ritter, in the cartoonish comedy "Problem Child" (1990). The two famously hit it off on the set, marrying in 1999. A happily married Yasbeck scored as the comic female lead in two Mel Brooks productions: Maid Marian in "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" (1993) and Mina Murray in "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" (1995) as well as in a fun supporting turn as a snoopy reporter in Jim Carrey's "The Mask" (1994). She earned great exposure as a panelist on "I've Got a Secret" (CBS, 1952-1967; 1976; syndicated, 1972-73; Oxygen, 2000-03; GSN, 2006) and as Casey, the spoiled younger sister to Helen (Crystal Bernard) when she joined the cast of "Wings" (NBC, 1990-97). When John Ritter died unexpectedly in 2003, she put her career on hold to keep her family together, his memory alive and his legacy enduring. A talented actress who achieved a lower-wattage stardom, Amy Yasbeck kept many critics and fans hoping she would one day achieve her full artistic potential.
