Whatever happened to Priscilla Barnes, who played Terri the nurse on the TV series Three’s Company?
Ken Burks, Bloomington, Ind.

Barnes, 53, works steadily, just not much in sitcoms anymore. She recently portrayed Hillary Clinton off-Broadway in the play Hillary Agonistes, appeared in the film American Cowslip and starred in the Hallmark TV movie Elevator Girl. She says her favorite role was in the 2005 horror film The Devil’s Rejects. "It’s a deep, dark, complex, layered role," she says. But her mother "loved Three’s Company because I was personable, likeable, cute and nonthreatening—all things mothers love their daughters to be." Barnes never has met Suzanne Somers, the actress she replaced on Three’s Company, but she and former co-star Joyce DeWitt remain close friends.
