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.
