She is also known as Trickster's sidekick Prank in the 1990 CBS series The Flash and the version from The CW, in which she appeared in a 2018 episode.

Bohrer's work has included a recurring role as Lianne Mars, the wayward mother of the title character in the CW television series Veronica Mars.[6]
