Rosalind Russell, who was more commonly known as Roz, was a bailiff during Seasons 4-9 of Night Court, as she replaced Florence Kleiner, as Florence Halop, who played her, died after the end of Season 3 of the series. The part of Roz is played by comedienne/actress Marsha Warfield, who stayed with the series for the rest of its run on NBC-TV.
The third bailiff on the series, Roz was much younger than her 2 previous counterparts but had a similar relationship with the characters, especially Bull. Roz's mother enjoyed show business, so her name as well as those of her siblings Slappy, Zsa Zsa and Topo Gigio, were the names of show business legends. Roz is a caring person with a tough exterior. While outwardly antisocial and unfriendly, she was inwardly shy and self-conscious and used a surly facade to keep people from getting close. In time she became close to her coworkers, including an unlikely friendship with Dan. While she is working at the Municipal Court, Roz finds out that she is diabetic.
