Cast members from The CW’s Melrose Place remake have said that it is “amazing” to be working with Heather Locklear. Here’s the full interview, courtesy by DigitalSpy.
The 47-year-old, who played conniving landlady and advertising executive Amanda Woodward on the original Fox series, recently reprised her role for the November 17 episode of the reboot.
Actor Sean Sipos, who portrays Dr Michael Mancini’s illegitimate son David Breck, said that Locklear started filming on Tuesday, E! reports.
“Today was her first day of filming. She spent so much time with that character that she must know her in and out. It must not be too big of a memory jog because she spent ten years with that character. She’s gonna rock it again.
“She said that not in her wildest dreams did she think Melrose would ever come back.”
Stephanie Jacobsen (Lauren Yung) added that the actress is the polar opposite of the character she portrayed from 1993 to 1999.
“Heather’s amazing. She is so warm and so unassuming that you would never guess she was Heather Locklear. We all met up with her for the first time at the table read, and she knew who we all were by name because she’d been watching the show.
“She’d researched us and it was so flattering. She slipped right back into Amanda, it was phenomenal.”
The 29-year-old also hinted that Locklear’s appearance on the series may extend to more than one episode, adding:
“I don’t know the specifics of the terms of her contract, but I can gather she’s gonna be around for awhile.”
