After releasing actress Denise Galik-Furey from the 2nd pilot version of Three's Company (1976), ABC hired Lanier to play "Chrissy Snow". After viewing that pilot, ABC let her go, hired Suzanne Somers and shot a 3rd pilot, the one that aired on TV.

Alternate Names:

Suze Lanier Bramlett | Susan Lainer | Jean Lanier | Suze Lanier | Susan Lanier-Bramlett | Suze Lanier-Bramlett
