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); she also appeared in the role of Heather Wilson in two episodes in Season 5 of the series.

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 musical 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 to 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 Grace Sommers. She also appeared in "The Subway," an episode of Seinfeld, where she enticed George Costanza (Jason Alexander) off a subway, brought him to a hotel, then handcuffed him to a bed and robbed him of eight dollars and all of 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] Her final screen appearance was in the 2001 television film The Princess & the Marine, alongside Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

After she gave up acting, Stock changed careers and commenced to run an interior design firm whose clientele were generally located in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.[6] As of the middle of April 2017, "Barbara Stock Design," as she called the firm, remained in business.
