Sources Say Heather Locklear Is Mounting Pressure On ‘Melrose Place’ Co-Stars To Revive Her Career With Reboot


Heather Locklear gained recognition for her role in the ’80s popular prime-time soap opera Dynasty when she starred as Sammy Jo Carrington. The actress also starred in other series like T.J. Hooker, however, one of her most notable roles was as Amanda Woodward on the hit series Melrose Place where she played the manipulative and glamorous advertising executive earning four consecutive Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama.

Sadly, her career has experienced a notable decline over the past decades with some attributing it to her encounters with the law and alleged struggles with alcoholism. Amidst these challenges, a recent report has suggested that the 62-year-old is determined to revive her career, and she is actively seeking support from her former co-stars in the hopes of spearheading a Melrose Place reboot.
