Before Dallas, she played another maid, Carmen, in the 1981 season of The Jeffersons.

This was a brief stand-in role for Marla Gibb’s character, as Christiansen only appeared in three episodes.

Gibbs originally left the show to star in her own spin-off, Checking in.

However, the spin-off was unsuccessful and only lasted four episodes, prompting Gibbs to return to her role in The Jeffersons.

Christiansen started her acting career young. At the age of nine, she starred in an Off-Off-Broadway play with her brother Victor.

The New York actress is survived by husband Steven Rizzo, children Josiah and Grace, and sister Elba.

Christiansen is considered a brilliant acting coach in the school she founded, Action! acting.

“Many of her students refer to their private sessions as their ‘therapy sessions,'” her husband told The Hollywood Reporter.

“Though her life was too short, she spent enough time here to plant seeds of love, encouragement and beauty in everyone she met.”
