Heather Locklear Speaks on Melrose Place Return
In case you haven't been online or watching any TV over the last few weeks, this just in:
Heather Locklear is returning to Melrose Place! The actress reprises her iconic role of Amanda Woodward on Tuesday night's episode. We'll cover the installment in full, as always.
Leading up to her (re)debut, Locklear spoke to Zap2It about a number of show-related topics. Excerpts from the interview follow...
On the use of original series regulars: I ran into Laura [Leighton, who plays Sydney] at my first table read for this, and we hugged for so long, It was also nice to see Thomas [Calabro] and for us to have our own little group. Then it really did feel like Melrose Place to me.
On first impressions of the show: When I saw the pilot episode, I thought, "Ooohh, this is slick!'' Like they had said, it wasn't the old "Melrose Place.'' Then I saw episode two, which I really loved.
On the new Amanda: [Producers] said she didn't want to be on an island any more, and she's ready for action. She's now got a boyfriend who has a lot of money, and something's going down with her company, so she has to come back and fix it.
