The Ladies of Seinfeld - Pamela Brull
June 24th, 2022 | Back to Blog Listing
Alright, let's get started. Season 1 Episode 1, "The Pilot" titled “The Seinfeld Chronicles”, also known as “Good News, Bad News”.

Before we get into it, we should note that this the only episode where Elaine isn’t yet a character, where Kramer is actually named Kessler, and where the famous coffee shop is instead a diner with a waitress named Claire played by Lee Garlington.

The basic plot is that Laura tells Jerry she’s coming into town and wants to stay with him. Jerry and George debate the signals Laura is giving off to try to determine if she’s romantically interested in him. And it appears that she is. But then just as they’re settling onto the couch together, each with a glass of wine in hand, she tells Jerry she’s engaged.

The character of Laura was played by Pamela Brull.

After Seinfeld, Brull was in a short-lived television show called Molloy where she worked with a very young Jennifer Anniston and an even younger Mayim Bialik. Incidentally, Mayim played the younger CC Bloom in Beaches alongside Bette Middler - a role that’s actually referenced later in Seinfeld.

Brull played the role of Jane Kowolski in Silent Cries, a feature film about the Japanese occupation of Singapore during WWII.

She managed to land a small recurring role on the hit series Growing Pains and played a coworker of Maggie Seaver's named Thelma. Maggie Seaver of course played by Joanna Kerns. She also went on to play Amanda Dobbs in an episode of Matlock, Gwen Barrett in an episode of Saved by the Bell: The New Class, and then a handful of smaller roles.

Her last role was in 1997 doing voice work for Extreme Ghostbusters, an animated series that ran for just one season.

And that's Pamela Brull.
