Life and career

Beforehand, she hosted the local talk show "Mid-Morning" on WTTV (now CBS4) Indianapolis from their facilities in Bloomington. 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. 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).
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). She later starred in the ABC primetime soap opera miniseries Trade Winds:1103 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.
