4 of 9: Priscilla Barnes portrayed the nurse Terri Alden on 'Three's Company,' which ran for eight seasons between 1976 until 1984.

'Three's Company' followed the lives of three single roommates, Jack Tripper (John Ritter), Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt) and Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers), their living arrangement and sexual exploits. At the time of the show's debut in 1976, co-ed living was still somewhat taboo and the trio told the landlord Stanley Roper (Norman Fell) that Jack was gay, while the landlord's wife Helen (Audra Lindley) knew what 'the kids' were doing.

When Somers was written off the show in 1981, her character Chrissy Snow was sent to care for her sick mother in Fresno and was temporarily replaced by Chrissy's cousin Cindy Snow (Jenilee Harrison) before their permanent roommate, Terri Alden (Priscilla Barnes) moved in.

Lindley and Fell went on to star in the spinoff 'The Ropers,' which ran between 1979 and 1980 on ABC, which showed the couple moving from their 'Three's Company' home to live in the fancier Cheviot Hills community and sold the building. The new owner's brother Ralph Furley (Don Knotts) took over as the landlord.

Following her stint on 'Three's Company,' Barnes appeared in films like 'A Vacation in Hell,' 'License to Kill,' 'Mallrats' and 'The Devil's Rejects.'

Barnes was born in 1955 in New Jersey and grew up on military bases. At 17, she moved to San Diego to work as a waitress and dancer, eventually getting a spot on Bob Hope's troupe and appearing in an episode of 'Columbo.'

During a 1998 episode of 'E! True Hollywood Story,' Barnes called 'Three's Company' the three worst years of her life and said she felt 'uncomfortable' on-set and unsuccessfully tried to get out of her contract.

Barnes married actor Ted Monte in 2003. The couple lives in Southern California.
