Nicollette Sheridan - Biography


Nicollette Sheridan (born November 21, 1963) is a British born American actress. She has appeared in movies and television, and is perhaps best known for her roles as Edie Britt on Desperate Housewives and as Paige Matheson on Knots Landing.

Sheridan was born in Worthing, West Sussex, England, the daughter of British actress Sally Sheridan (née Adams). Sheridan attended school at Millfield in Somerset and emigrated to the United States in 1973.

Sheridan made her debut in the US primetime soap opera Paper Dolls in 1984, but her breakthrough came in 1986, when she joined the cast of the CBS primetime soap Knots Landing as "Paige Matheson". She started out in a recurring role, but was a series regular by the 1988-89 season. For her performance in the role, she won the 1990 Soap Opera Digest Award for "Outstanding Lead Actress: Prime Time" and the 1991 Soap Opera Digest Award for "Outstanding Heroine: Prime Time". The same year, she was named one of People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People". After the series ended in 1993, she appeared in several made-for-TV movies and the films Spy Hard and Beverly Hills Ninja and auditioned for the role of Grace Adler on Will & Grace (on which she would later guest-star).
In 2004, Sheridan's role as sexy model divorcee Edie Britt in ABC's Desperate Housewives brought her renewed media attention. She was nominated for a 2005 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and was named #48 on Maxim's 2006 List. Less positively, she was named 2004's "worst dressed" by Mr. Blackwell. She commented that: "I'd rather be number one on the worst-dressed list than number two on the best." Blackwell had earlier (TV Guide, July 22, 1989) praised her fashion sense: "daring ... with her panache, she brings it off without a hitch. For the adventurer in all of us, she's the one to watch".
Toward the close of the fourth season of Desperate Housewives, conflicting reports circulated regarding Sheridan's future in her role. While Hollywood.com reported in April that series creator Marc Cherry had said Sheridan would depart at the end of the season, another source stated that Sheridan was confident she would return for the series' fifth season. By May 4, Entertainment Weekly reported that Sheridan would likely make several appearances in the upcoming season, but not necessarily as a regular cast member.
Actress Dana Delany, who plays Katherine Mayfair, confirmed that Nicollette Sheridan would be back to reprise her role for Season 5 of Desperate Housewives, and the Hollywood Reporter reported Nicollette's character might be seducing another boyfriend, played by actor Neal McDonough.
When season five aired, Sheridan did indeed reprise her regular role as Edie, now married to McDonough's character.
In February 2009 Sheridan announced her departure from Desperate Housewives. Her exit episode aired in April 2009 when Edie Britt was killed off in the series.

From 1979 Sheridan dated singer and actor Leif Garrett; the two split six years later. Two decades later Garrett credited Sheridan for helping him at the start of his career, and said of her "She's a special person in my life."
Sheridan was married to actor Harry Hamlin from 1991 to 1993.
She began seeing Swedish personal trainer Nicklas Söderblom in 2004 and became engaged to him on New Year's Eve 2004; the pair called off the engagement in October 2005.
After their break-up, Sheridan returned to ex-boyfriend Michael Bolton, whom Sheridan had originally met in 1991. Bolton proposed on holiday in the Bahamas in March 2006. Sheridan was quoted as saying: "It's much sweeter the second time around." In 2006, Sheridan and Bolton sang a duet, "The Second Time Around", for the album Bolton Swings Sinatra. In March 2008, Sheridan posed naked for a London Fog charity ad which also featured Bolton. Sheridan and Bolton broke off the engagement, however, later that year.


Nicollette Sheridan - Personal Quotes


"I grew up feeling like the ugly duckling, and things have not changed that much. For some reason, Hollywood seems to have painted me as a gorgeous vixen at times or the sweet girl. I don't get it."

On Telly Savalas: "He was officially my stepfather, but I always thought of him as my daddy".

I think I've been very lucky. A lot of this business is being in the right place at the right time with the right thing.
