Vicki Ree “Victoria” Principal (born January 3, 1950) is an American actress, entrepreneur, and author, best known for her role as Pamela Barnes Ewing on the American prime time television soap opera series Dallas that aired on the CBS network from 1978 to 1991. She spent nine years on the long-running Dallas series, leaving the role in 1987. Principal is a two-time Golden Globe Award nominee. After Principal left the Dallas TV series in 1987, she began her own production company, Victoria Principal Productions, producing mostly television films. In the mid-1980s, she became interested in natural beauty therapies, and in 1989, she created a self-named line of skincare products, Principal Secret. Principal became a best-selling author, writing three books about beauty, skincare, fitness, well-being and health: The Body Principal (1983); The Beauty Principal (1984); and The Diet Principal (1987). In the 2000s, she wrote a fourth book Living Principal (2001). After 12 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list in the general non-fiction category, The Body Principal was the first “Advice, How-To, and Miscellaneous” No. 1 bestseller when that List debuted January 1, 1984. In 2018, Principal is currently in the process of writing her fifth book, as yet untitled.

Principal went on to star in various television films, some of which she produced through her production company Victoria Principal Productions, before stepping away to focus on her health and wellness projects. She has produced and starred in a half dozen major television productions, including Naked Lie (1989), Blind Witness (1989), and Sparks: The Price of Passion (1990). In 1994, Principal appeared in an episode of the hit TV sitcom Home Improvement. Through the late 1990s and in 2000, she continued to appear as a guest star on several TV sitcoms and prime-time drama series, including Just Shoot Me!, Family Guy, Providence, The Practice, as well as appearing as herself on the comedy skit show Tracey Takes On.... In 1998, Principal co-starred in the French comedy feature film, Michael Kael vs. the World News Company, written by and starring Benoît Delépine. The cast included, Marine Delterme, Mickey Rooney, Elliott Gould, William Atherton and Féodor Atkine. The plot centers on a journalist who disrupts the cynical collusion between a CNN-type entity and covert operators in Washington in 1999, at Miami-based international news giant corporation WNC, where star co-anchors Leila Parker (Principal) and James Denit (Atherton) hate each other's guts. Their boss, Coogan (Gould), reminds them they pull in top ratings as a pair. Principal returned to prime-time soap opera television in 2000, when she appeared in another Aaron Spelling production, the short-lived NBC television series Titans, with co-stars John Barrowman, Perry King and Yasmine Bleeth. Thirteen episodes were filmed, of which eleven were actually aired. Produced by Aaron Spelling, the series was initially marketed as a “Dynasty for the new millennium,” attempting to emulate the style of Spelling's earlier hit series. However, low ratings led NBC to cancel the series before its first season was completed. After appearing in NBC's Titans, Principal dedicated her time fully to her skincare company and to philanthropic activities, as she confirmed to People Magazine in 2018, “By the time I turned 50, I felt that I wanted to make a change in my life” — she says, of ultimately leaving Hollywood after 2001 — 'My interest had shifted in such a way that would totally pursue my passion, which more and more really was my skincare company and creating products that could help many people." In 2004, Principal featured along with other original Dallas cast members in Dallas Reunion: The Return to Southfork, a television special celebrating the 1978–1991 prime-time series that aired on CBS.
