Barbara Stock (born May 26, 1956[1]) is an American actress, best known for roles as Susan Silverman in ABC crime drama series Spenser: For Hire (1985-1988), and as Liz Adams in CBS primetime soap opera Dallas (1990-1991).

Life and career[edit]

Stock was born in Downers Grove, Illinois, and began acting professionally in 1978. She played the role of Claudia in the Tommy Tune-directed, Tony Award-winning, Nine, on Broadway, replacing Shelley Burch in the original cast in 1983.[2] She is best known for having appeared in the prime-time drama Spenser: For Hire for two non-consecutive seasons (1985–1986; 1987–1988) as Susan Silverman, the love interest of Spenser (Robert Urich).[3]

Stock starred in the final season of CBS primetime soap opera Dallas from 1990-1991 as Liz Adams, the fiancée of Cliff Barnes (Ken Kercheval).[4] She later starred in the ABC primetime soap opera miniseries, Trade Winds, as evil Grace Sommers. She also appeared in an episode of Seinfeld where she seduced George Costanza off a subway, brought him to a hotel, handcuffed him to a bed and stole all of his eight dollars as well as his clothes. In 1997, Stock had a recurring role on the now-defunct ABC daytime soap opera Port Charles as Nicole Devlin.

Stock has appeared in more than 100 hours of television, and made over 30 guest appearances on television shows, including CHiPs, The Facts of Life, Fantasy Island, Remington Steele, Knight Rider, Moonlighting, Murder, She Wrote, The Twilight Zone, MacGyver, Touched by an Angel and Charmed.[5]
