Phyllis Davis (born July 17, 1940, in Port Arthur, Texas) is an actress who appeared primarily on television. She was most notably a part of the cast of Aaron Spelling's dramatic series Vega$, playing the character Beatrice Travis.
Davis also appeared in television series such as Knight Rider: she played the role of the villainous Tanya Walker in the pilot episode "Knight of the Phoenix." She had guest roles in Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., Magnum, P.I., The Love Boat, and was a regular performer in the vignettes in Love, American Style. She was a Match Game panelist on occasion and appeared on a Battle of the Network Stars special.
According to the Knight Rider Season One DVD, Davis has a thick Southern accent, so her lines had to be dubbed by an anonymous actress.
