With her blond beauty and knack for comedy, success for Nicollette Sheridan has always been a 'sure thing.' Nicollette was born Colette Sheridan on November 21, 1963 in Worthing, West Sussex, England, the daughter of British actress Sally Sheridan and she moved to the United States at the age of 13. Her first big break came in 1984 on the nighttime soap Paper Dolls, set in the world of modeling. Although the show lasted only 14 episodes, it got Nicollette noticed and led to her first film role, as John Cusack's dream girl in the Rob Reiner-directed comedy The Sure Thing. In 1989, she joined the cast of the CBS drama Knots Landing, and her role as 'Paige Matheson' won her a the 1990 Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Lead Actress: Prime Time and the 1991 Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Heroine: Prime Time. After Knots Landing ended its run in 1993, Nicollette went on to star in such films as Spy Hard and Beverly Hills Ninja and lent her voice to the Disney cartoon series The Legend of Tarzan. She continued to make guest appearances on TV shows such as Becker and Will & Grace until 2004, when she was offered the role of 'Edie Britt' on the ABC comedy-drama Desperate Housewives. Her performance as the sexy divorcee earned her a nomination for a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe in 2005 and landed her on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list in 2006. Although Edie left Wisteria Lane at the end of the show's fourth season, she is rumored to be making some guest appearances on the upcoming fifth season. Nicollette is a sexy divorcee herself, having been married to actor Harry Hamlin from 1991 to 1993. She is currently making beautiful music with singer Michael Bolton. Although her time with the ladies of Wisteria Lane may be drawing to a close, Nicollette's future career prospects are far from desperate.
