Heather Deen Locklear is an American actress, known for her television roles as Sammy Jo Carrington on Dynasty, Officer Stacy Sheridan on T.J. Hooker, Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place and Caitlin Moore on Spin City. Heather’s traceable ancestry includes English, Scottish, and German.
Locklear wanted to be a cheerleader in high school, but when that didn’t pan out, she joined the drama club and discovered a passion for acting. She attended UCLA, where her father was the Dean of the School of Engineering, and while there, modeled for the UCLA store. However, after landing TV commercials for products such as Coca-Cola and Polaroid, she realized she enjoyed acting enough to drop out.
Her success held, with a role in the major motion picture Firestarter (1984) starring Drew Barrymore, and parts in a succession of TV movies, when on hiatus from her series. In 1986 she married rocker Tommy Lee, but the marriage ended seven years later. The low point of her career came after Dynasty came to an end in 1989, and she won a Razzie Award as Worst Actress for The Return of the Swamp Thing (1989). In 1993, Locklear joined the cast of the nighttime soap Melrose Place. For her role as Amanda Woodward Blake Parezi McBride Burns, Locklear received four Golden Globe nominations, finally proving to her critics that looks weren’t her only asset. In 1999 when the show ended, she was hired to spice up the sitcom Spin City starring Michael J. Fox and received two more Golden Globe nominations.
