After a few years in B movies, Marshall gained a role on a second series, 1997's Chicago Sons. In the same year, she landed a recurring role on Spin City and starred alongside Bette Midler and Dennis Farina in the film That Old Feeling, where her character fell in love with one played by Danny Nucci.
