9 of 9: Jenilee Harrison portrayed Chrissy's clumsy cousin Cindy Snow 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.

Harrison's character was a farm girl version of her cousin Chrissy, but the similarities were close enough that writers could use the scripts written for Chrissy for Cindy. Her character was phased out after Terri Alden moved into the apartment.

Harrison was born in 1959 in Northridge, California and attended the University of Southern California.

Following her stint on 'Three's Company,' Harrison portrayed Jamie Ewing on 'Dallas' from 1984 until 1986. Her character was killed off twice, once in an exploding car in (which turned out to be a dream sequence) and later on in a mountain climbing accident.

Harrison dated football player Dennis Harrah and baseball player Reggie Jackson. She is now married to Cybill Shepherd's ex-husband Dr. Bruce Oppenheim.
