Heather the rescuer

August 29, 2008

Aaron Spelling saw Heather’s television star potential in the 1980s, and wanted her to improve the ratings of the primetime soap, Melrose Place. Heather thought she was too old to join the twentysomething cast of town house residents, but as blonde vixen Amanda Woodward, Heather was just what the show needed to boost its low ratings and add some spice to the plot.

Amanda was the character audiences loved to hate, while Heather was the woman every woman wanted to hate, but couldn’t. It was clear that critics loved her, as Heather was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Drama for 4 consecutive years, for her work on Melrose Place.

While working as Amanda Woodward from 1993-1999, Heather guest-starred in the film Wayne’s World, as Wayne and Garth’s most schwingable babe; appeared in an uncredited role in The First Wives Club; and starred in Money Talks and Double Tap.
