Heather Locklear

 

  1. Jodie Foster, Taxi Driver, 1975.
  2. Amy Steel, The Powers of Matthew Star, TV, 1982-1983.     She auditioned with a young guy testing as the super-powered alien prince of the planet Quadris… Tom Cruise.
  3. Linda Hamilton, The Terminator, 1983.     In all, 52 actresses were considered, seen, or tested for Sarah Connor.James Cameron created her for Bridget Fonda. She passed; so did Tatum O’Neal. He decided to go older…Glenn Close won - her schedule didn’t agree. OK, Kate Capshaw!  No, she was tied to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - just as Kathleen Turner was Romancing The Stone.  Debra Winger won her audition, said yes… then no. The other 46 ladies were: Heather, Rosanna Arquette, Kim Basinger, Christy Brinkley, Colleen Camp, Jamie Lee Curtis, Geena Davis, Mia Farrow, Carrie Fisher, Jodie Foster, Teri Garr, Jennifer Grey, Melanie Griffith, Darryl Hannah, Goldie Hawn, Barbara Hershey,Angelica Huston, Amy Irving, Diane Keaton, Margot Kidder, Diane Lane, Jessica Lange, Jennifer Jason Leigh,  Kay Lenz, Lori Loughlin, Kelly McGillis, Kristy McNichol, Madonna, Liza Minnelli, Mary TylerMoore, Rhea Perlman(!), Michelle Pfeiffer, Gilda Radner(!), Deborah Raffin, Miranda Richardson, Meg Ryan, Susan Sarandon, Jane Seymour, Ally Sheedy, Cybill Shepherd, Brooke Shields, Sissy Spacek, Sharon Stone, Sigourney Weaver.   Most were in contention again a few years later for Fatal Attraction (won by Close) and The Accused (going to Foster and McGillis). Ten years later (after T2), Linda gave birth to Cameron’s daughter and Josephine’s parents wed in 1997… for two years.
  4. Anjelica Huston, Prizzi’s Honor, 1984.      “So let’s do it. Right here. On the Oriental. With all the lights on.” Maerose Prizzi knew what she wanted, where and when from her Family’s hit man, Jack Nicholson - the unlikeliest Mafioso since the Corleones’ James Caan. Before realising his daughter was Oscar-winning perfection, director John Huston looked at some 19 potential Maeroses. From the sublime Rosanna Arquette, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Liza Minnelli, Demi Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer (been there, done that and got the Married To The Mob and Scarface t-shirts), Debra Winger… to the ridiculous: Geena Davis, Melanie Griffith, Daryl Hannah, Emma Thompson, Sela Ward, Debra Winger… and the damn stupid: Locklear, Linda Blair, Carrie Fisher, Kelly Lebrock, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ally Sheedy
  5. Glenn Close, Fatal Attraction, 1987.
  6. Candice Bergen, Murphy Brown, TV, 1988-1998.      Heather headed the CBS list for the title role that gave Bergen a second top career.  (The third came in Boston Legal, 2005-2008).
  7. Julia Roberts, Pretty Woman, 1989.
  8. Sharon Stone, Basic Instinct, 1991.
  9. Tiffani Thiessen, Fastlane, 2002-2003.   The role of police lieutenant Wilhelmina “Billie” Chambers - in charge of a pair of brash and bitter cops - was first offered to Heather.She missed nothing; the series was cancelled after 22 episodes for being too pricey at$2.6m a pop.
  10. Tiffani Thiessen, Good Morning, Miami, TV, 2003-2004.   Tiffani wins again... Heather spurned the offer of Victoria Hill, for being too close to her Caitlin in Spin City, TV, 1996-2002.   What made this show different from other TV shows about TV shows (Mary Tyler Moore,Murphy Brown)? The weather girl was a nun!
  11. Teri Hatcher, Desperate Housewives, TV, 2004-2008.   On creator Marc Cherry’s wish list for Susan Mayer. The show wasrefused by all networks as a kind of junior Golden Girls (Marc Cherry created both series), until winning ABC favour as a comedy-drama on the dark side.
