Priscilla Barnes

Priscilla Barnes (born December 7, 1955) is an American actress known for replacing Suzanne Somers (Jenilee Harrison having stepped in the season before) when the contract of Somers was not renewed on the show Three's Company. On that series, she portrayed Terri Alden, an intelligent nurse who seemed to be the show's answer to complaints about their portrayal of blondes. Barnes had previously auditioned for the part of Cindy Snow, but was turned down because she was deemed "too old" for the part.
Before she made it big on Three's Company, Barnes was a beauty pageant contestant. During her teens she aspired to be a dancer. One of her earliest roles was a minor role in the horror film Tintorera. During a Hollywood Bowl performance, she fell off the stage, fracturing her jaw and breaking her leg, and putting a lid on her dancing career. Also prior to fame, she appeared in the March 1976 issue of Penthouse magazine under the false name Joann Witty. Barnes later sued the magazine when they republished her photo using her real name.

Barnes eventually turned to acting and appeared on TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch, The Rockford Files and The Love Boat.

She was also in the 1978 TV version of the "Time Machine".
