Heather Locklear who played Stacy Sheridan on the TV show T.J. Hooker and Sammy Jo Carrington on Dynasty

Heather Locklear was born September 25, 1961 in Los Angeles, California.  Heather is well known for playing many roles including Officer Stacy Sheridan on the TV show "T.J. Hooker" while simultaneously playing the role of Sammy Jo Carrington on the show "Dynasty".  Then she played Amanda Woodward on the show "Melrose Place" which is probably one of the few TV shows that has gone through two runs, one in the '90s and one in 2009-10, ten years after the first.  And in between those runs, Locklear was also well known as Caitlin Moore on "Spin City".  She may as well be referred to as the "Wonder Woman" of prime time television.  It may have something to do with the fact that she is one smokin' hot lady.

Heather began her acting career in 1979 by appearing in the TV movie "Tales of the Unexpected" co-starring Harry Andrews, Charles Dance, Don Johnson, Sharon Gless, Sondra Locke, Samantha Eggar, and Thomas Gark.  The same year she guest starred in her first TV series "CHiPs" starring Erik Estrada, Larry Wilcox, Robert Pine, Randi Oakes, and Brianne Leary.
