Clip of Susan Dey on Third Watch

Here's a clip of Susan Dey in her final TV appearance (unless she decides to do something else!), playing Dr. Breene on a 2004 episode of Third Watch. In this scene, Susan Dey, playing a counselor, has some words of wisdom for a group of grief-stricken city employees.

Here's a great pic of Susan Dey in a floppy hat. Judging by the hat and jacket, this picture is most likely from her first feature film Skyjacked.

Clip of Susan Dey in The Trouble with Dick

In 1987, following up on her 1986 independent film Echo Park, Susan Dey decided to appear in another oddball, low-budget movie, The Trouble with Dick. In this clip, Susan Dey has lunch with the star of the movie, Tom Villard. He chats about his work as a science fiction author and eventually she lets him know about an empty room in the house she lives in. Tom Villard does most of the talking in this clip but nevertheless Susan Dey looks quite stunning the whole time!

Clip of Susan Dey on Matt Helm

In her first TV appearance of 1976, Susan Dey was the featured guest star in an episode the short-lived detective series Matt Helm. This clip is from the very beginning of the episode (called 'Die Once, Die Twice') and shows how Susan Dey's character Ellen Tanner gets into quite a mess after getting into a fight with her husband Griff.

Clip of Susan Dey on Circle of Fear

Here's a nice clip of Susan Dey on the horror anthology series Circle of Fear (Ghost Story was the original title of the show) in 1973. This was Susan Dey's first TV appearance outside of The Partridge Family (though she had a small role in the 1972 feature film Skyjacked) and one of only two instances where she appeared in a horror-related project (the other being the TV movie Disappearance in 2002). Edit: Also (as a Susan Dey fan on Facebook kindly pointed out), Susan Dey's 1995 TV movie Deadly Love, about vampires and murder, should also rightfully be considered a horror-related project. My mistake for not including it!

In the Circle of Fear episode called 'Doorway to Death', Susan Dey plays big sister to two younger kids, played by Leif Garrett and Dawn Lyn. Luckily, Susan Dey already had a bunch of experience acting with children since she had been doing it on The Partridge Family since 1970!
