Penny Marshall

            Carole Penny Marshall was an American actress.

Penny Marshall, who starred in the hit American sitcom Laverne & Shirley before becoming one of the top-grossing female directors in Hollywood, has died at 75.

Marshall played Laverne, starring alongside Cindy Williams as Shirley, in the hit ABC comedy that aired from 1976 to 1983.

The director Rob Reiner, who was married to Marshall from 1971 to 1981, wrote: “I loved Penny. I grew up with her. She was born with a great gift.

Laverne & Shirley was a spinoff from Happy Days and followed the lives of two single women and their nutty friends in 1950s and 60s Milwaukee. Marshall, known for her bluntness, described the success of the series this way: “We dared to be stupid.”

In addition to the Happy Days spinoff show Laverne & Shirley, Marshall acted as a guest star in numerous TV shows such as '70s comedy series The Odd Couple.

Marshall became the first female director to helm a movie that grossed over $100 million.
