Nicollette Sheridan (1963)

Type :  


Nicollette Sheridan is an English film and television actress. She is best known for her roles as Edie Britt on Desperate Housewives and as Paige Matheson on Knots Landing.


 early life
Sheridan was born in Worthing, West Sussex, England, the daughter of actress Sally Sheridan (née Adams). She attended school at Millfield in Somerset. In 1969, her mother was working alongside Greek-American actor Telly Savalas on the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The couple started an affair, and after completion of shooting Savalas moved the entire family to the United States. Her mother gave birth to a son, Nicholas Savalas, on February 24, 1973. Telly Savalas and Sally Sheridan separated in 1977, and the family split their time between the United States and England.

Nicollette 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". 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 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. She was named 2004's "worst dressed" by Mr. Blackwell.

Sheridan reprised her regular role as Edie in Season 5 of Desperate Housewives, still a series regular, now married to Neal McDonough's character, Dave Williams. 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. Sheridan's salary at the time was estimated at $175'000 per episode, and she has accumulated a net worth of around $20 million.

In 2010, Sheridan was set to star in an upcoming CBS comedy series as a mother who battles with her British ex-husband to get her teenaged daughter to stardom, but the series was not picked up for the fall season by CBS.
Sheridan will not return to the set of Desperate Housewives to reprise the role of Edie Britt for the series finale.

In September 2010, Sheridan filmed a Hallmark Channel movie, Honeymoon for One, in Ireland, playing Eve Parker. The movie premiered on August 13, 2011 on the Hallmark Channel.

 personal life
From 1979 to 1985, Sheridan dated singer and actor Leif Garrett. 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 she had originally met in 1991. Bolton proposed on holiday in the Bahamas in March 2006. 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 later that year. She later dated professional skater Dorien Walker.

On April 5, 2010, Sheridan filed a $20 million lawsuit against Desperate Housewives creator and producer Marc Cherry and ABC, alleging that she was assaulted by Cherry on the set of the show and was wrongfully fired when she reported the alleged abuse to the network. In her lawsuit, Sheridan claimed wrongful termination, assault and battery, gender violence, discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation and age, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She also claimed that Cherry was abusive to other cast members and writers. ABC responded in a statement saying that while they were unaware of this particular complaint, they had investigated similar claims made by Sheridan and reportedly found them to be without merit.

The stars of Desperate Housewives have pledged their support to help Marc Cherry in his battle against assault allegations made by Sheridan. At the end of 2010, she removed abuse claims from the suit.

In February 2011, Sheridan won a battle in her Desperate Housewives lawsuit when a judge ruled the actress does not have to give further testimony about conversations with a lawyer she consulted. Sheridan's lawsuit had a hearing on May 3, 2011, followed by a trial which is tentatively scheduled for June 8, 2011.

For the second time, Sheridan averted another legal challenge to her lawsuit against Marc Cherry. The trial will take place on October 17, 2011.

A judge limited Nicollette Sheridan's damages in the Desperate Housewives case.
