Priscilla Barnes is an American actress best 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, a (usually) non-ditzy, intelligent blonde nurse who seemed to be the show's answer to complaints about their portrayal of blondes. Incidentally, 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 and during her teens, aspired to be a dancer. 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. Barnes eventually turned to acting and appeared on TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch, The Rockford Files and The Love Boat. Although an unknown, her charisma and screen presence ensured that she worked steadily.
