Priscilla had originally been offered a role as one of the angels on Charlie's Angels. She turned down the role because she disliked the show. Priscilla made her television debut as co-host of Those Amazing Animals in 1980. In 1983, she got her first chance to act professionally on a season 2 episode of The Fall Guy titled "Manhunter".
She then found a role in a television film titled Love is Forever, starring alongside Michael Landon. Although she was treated well by most of the cast and crew, and her acting was praised by several of her co-stars, Landon was difficult to work with on set. After the television film aired, Priscilla landed the role of Jenna Wade on the popular television soap Dallas. She played the role of Wade for five years, leaving the show in 1988 to focus on other parts. She has appeared in several well known television series, including Melrose Place, Touched by an Angel, and Spin City.
Priscilla has also appeared in a few feature film roles, most notably Lt. Frank Drebin's girlfriend and (later) wife in the Naked Gun film series. Other big screen roles have included parts in The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
