Name: Priscilla Barnes

Born: December 7, 1955 in Fort Dix, New Jersey

Claim To Fame: The role of Teri Alden in "Three's Company." Most people think she replaced Suzanne Sommers, but in reality she replaced Jennilee Harrison who was hired as Cindy Snow
(Chrissy Snow, Suzanne Sommers).

Things just didn't quite click with Jennilee in the show and producers decided to have her go off to college. That paved the way for Priscilla to join the cast. She played a nurse on the show.
