Heather Locklear is an LA girl, born and raised so it wasn’t too much of a stretch to make it in Hollywood. While she was still in college at UCLA she was taking gigs modeling and acting in commercials. In the mid-1980s she was a series regular on the show T.J. Hooker.
During the 1990s she played starring roles on the television shows Melrose Place and Spin City, which earned her two Golden Globe nominations. Since Spin City was canceled in 2002 she’s struggled to earn any more starring roles. She has made guest-starring appearances on shows like Hot in Cleveland and Franklin & Bash but was never the leading lady.
