To make her first appearance on the November 17 episode, the actress who plays Amanda Woodward in the original series will reportedly portray the boss of Katie Cassidy's Ella Simms at the PR firm.
Heather Locklear is returning to the sexy apartment complex. Although she had turned down the offer to reprise her Amanda Woodward role earlier, the 47-year-old has been confirmed by The CW to join the cast of the refurbished version of the 1990's drama series, "Melrose Place". She will be making her first appearance on the show on the November 17 episode.
"We're ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to 'Melrose Place,' " executive producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer said in a statement. "Heather's involvement in the show is something we've been working on for some time as we couldn't imagine creating and producing this show without the iconic character's inclusion."
Locklear will be joining her former co-stars, Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bisset and Daphne Zuniga, who all reprise their original roles. As for what spice she will bring to the series, Entertainment Weekly reported sources have claimed she will be portraying the boss of Katie Cassidy's Ella Simms at the PR firm.
