Television actress Betsy Brandt

If you were among the many devoted fans of the cable-TV drug-crime drama "Breaking Bad," then you know who Betsy Brandt is.

Betsy Brandt played Marie Schrader, a radiologic technologist and the sister-in-law of Walter White, the cancer-plagued, crystal-meth-producing antihero of "Breaking Bad."  While her husband, a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, was tracking an anonymous drug kingpin without knowing it was Walter, Marie struggled with a shoplifting habit and remained devoted to her sister's and Walter's family.

With "Breaking Bad" done on cable, Ms. Brandt moved to another genre - comedy - and another format - broadcast television.  She plays Annie Henry, Mike Henry's wife, on Michael J. Fox's self-titled sitcom on NBC.  While Mike returns to broadcast journalism, Annie works as a teacher.
