She also had roles in the films The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia and the spoof Dr. Heckyl and Mr. Hype with the English actor Oliver Reed. She is listed in the credits of Animal House (“Otter’s Coed”), but does not appear in the movie as her scene was cut due to time constraints.
On the night of June 18, 1984, the actress was found unconscious in the home she shared with her boyfriend, Archie Hahn. She was taken to UCLA Medical Center (now Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center), where she remained on a life-support system until June 19, when she was declared clinically dead. Without any hope of her mental recovery, her family agreed to take her off the respirator. Johnson had suffered a burst blood vessel in her brain.

Pulsipher in 2012
(1982-05-06) May 6, 1982
Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
Lindsay Pulsipher (born May 6, 1982) is an American actress. She has had several roles in film and television, and is known for her series regular role as Rose Lawrence on A&E Network‘s The Beast (2009). She joined the third season of HBO‘s True Blood (2010), playing were-panther Crystal Norris and love interest to Jason Stackhouse.
Lindsay Pulsipher was born and grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, with five siblings, and was inspired to be an actor by her mother, a theater actress. As she puts it, “I used to make either my little sister or my best friend act out these plays with me. I was doing that from the time I can remember. It was always something I enjoyed doing”. She was influenced by Julie Christie and Audrey Hepburn who showed her “a whole new world as far as acting goes”.
After appearing in several roles from 2000 to 2003 in the television series, Touched by an Angel, filmed in her hometown of Salt Lake City, and after starring in a couple of indie films, Pulsipher moved to Los Angeles to pursue a lifelong dream of a career in acting.
She was given several guest starring roles in popular television series including House, M.D., CSI: NY (Crime Scene Investigation: New York) and NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and eventually received a regular role with Patrick Swayze in The Beast (2009). She took the role of Crystal Norris beginning with the third season of the True Blood (2010). She has starred in two features directed by Calvin Reeder: The Oregonian (2011), and The Rambler (2013), and most recently, she guest-starred as Kim Rollins, Amanda Rollins‘ troubled sister on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
“…I’m a very visual person. When I’m reading a script or if I’m preparing for a scene I really like to create the story in a visual sense. I take myself out of the character completely and almost watch the character as a spectator, if that makes sense. I’m observing the character as a third person. So I don’t make it too personal so that she’s her own person. I read it like I do a novel. When you read a book you create this image in your head of what these people are doing and the story in your head is more of a visual thing. I guess that I do that with scripts, too. I almost look at it as a spectator as opposed to being right in it. I know that sounds cheesy but then I feel like I can then learn from watching it if that makes sense”.
