Pascal broke into television in 1984, at first in guest roles on such series as Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer and Hotel, and in a few made-for-TV movies before landing what is perhaps her best known role to date on Showtime's Brothers, in 1986. For the next three seasons of Brothers, Pascal played Sam, the new steady love interest of Joe Waters (Robert Walden), whom he eventually marries at the start of the show's fifth season. Sam became pregnant not long after, and bore Joe a daughter, Caroline, during the season.
Outside of and beyond Brothers, Pascal continued to do guest work on syndicated, network and cable TV series, while adding more TV movies to her resume. Her most visible roles in TV films include Blood Vows: The Story of a Mafia Wife (1987), Parker Kane (1990) and Writer's Block (1991). Pascal's most current guest appearance was in a 1996 episode of USA Network's Pacific Blue.
In various credits of hers, she is sometimes billed as Marianne or Mariann, but is most commonly referred to as Mary Ann. Prior to officially joining the cast of Brothers, Pascal actually made guest appearances in the program's first and second seasons, as nearly different characters. In her second season guest shot only, she was credited as Mariann Pascal, but in her original 1984 appearance, as well as during her three year role as Sam, she was billed as Mary Ann Pascal.
