Priscilla Barnes

She is best-known for her bittersweet replacement of TV goddess Suzanne Somers during the tension-riddled times of the popular ABC slapstick comedy series, Three’s Company. (1976) She had to endure the anguish of stepping into the shoes of an enormously popular star whose diva act had her unceremoniously dumped from the show when contractual negotiations went awry.

Where are they now?

Since her appearance on Three’s Company, she has maintained in a Hollywood that doesn’t cater to women of “maturing” age, especially former TV stars. On TV, she added a feisty glamor to the series Dark Justice (1991), Viper (1994), Murder, She Wrote (1984) and episodes on “The Love Boat” (1977) episodes. More often, however, she has shown up in a low-budget film. She has certainly taken on more than her fair share of horror projects, including  Stepfather III(1992), Witch Academy (1995), The Backlot Murders(2002), Unseen Evil 2(2004), The Devil’s Rejects (2005), Trailer Park of Terror(2008) and Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield (2007), in which some of her characters have met grisly ends. She was featured as the bride of a CIA agent (David Hedison), who is shot to death on her wedding day, in the Timothy Dalton “007” film, Licence to Kill (1989).
