Profile Bio Text
Nicollette Sheridan (born November 21, 1963) is a British television actress. She is perhaps best known for her roles in the American television series Knots Landing and Desperate Housewives. 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 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".
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 immigrated to the United States in 1973. 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.
