Austin, an American actress, disappeared from the show after episode 10.
Karen Austin, Who Is She?
Karen Austin, who hails from Welch, West Virginia, has been involved in the theater industry since 1974. She attended Northwestern University for a Master's degree, and her acting is what she got right. In 1974, Austin made her screen debut in the TV documentary 'The Ottawa Valley.' In 1978, she appeared in a special episode of 'Happy Days.'
Austin made her big-screen debut in 1979 in 'Fish Hawk,' portraying a woman named Mrs. Gideon. In 1982, she appeared in 'House of Frankenstein,' 'Murder One: Diary of a Serial Killer,' and 'The Closer.' She also appears in four episodes of 'Fresh Hell and six episodes of 'Whole Day Down.'
Karen Austin, Why Did She Leave Night Court?
Weege originally planned to make Lana the romantic foil for both Judge Harold "Harry" T. Stone (Harry Anderson) and Reinhold Daniel Fielding Elmore (John Larroquette). However, the first season of the show said she was impacted by Bell's palsy. In season 2, Charles Robinson joins the cast as the new court clerk Macintosh "Mac" Robinson. In the second season, Christine Sullivan (Markie Post) serves the role of Harry's romantic interest.
Austin hasn't appeared on screen since 2015, when she starred alongside Sienna Guillory, Gianni Capaldi, and Enzo Cilenti in Jay Alaimo's 'The Wicked Within,' which is resurrected in many films and television series celebrating the 1980s. This would only increase viewership.
