Joyce DeWitt

Birth Date: April 23, 1949 / Age: 68

Biography: Joyce DeWitt (born April 23, 1949) is an American actress, most famous for her role as Janet Wood on the television situation comedy Three's Company.

She became almost as famous for her disappearance after the series as she did for her Three's Company role; after the series, she did not appear as a regular player on any television series, which led to a number of "Whatever Happened to Joyce DeWitt?" retrospectives in newspaper entertainment columns and television gossip shows [1] [2]. This was also parodied on an episode of Family Guy, when Brian found Joyce DeWitt in an Aladdin-type fantasy world. Surprised, Brian remarked, "Joyce DeWitt! So that's where you've been all these years!"

She and her former Three's Company co-star Suzanne Somers have had an acrimonious relationship and, according to many sources, did not speak to each other for approximately two decades.

Famous for always wearing pantyhose, she became a paid endorser for hosiery. DeWitt was also engaged to actor Randolph Mantooth, but they called off their engagement.

Joyce DeWitt was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, and grew up in Speedway, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. After she received a bachelor's degree from Ball State University, she moved to California to earn her masters degree from the University of California at Los Angeles. While attending UCLA, she worked part-time as a house painter and once was hired to paint actor Abe Vigoda's garage doors. This painting job spawned a friendship between DeWitt and Vigoda which has endured to the present day.
