In the 1990’s (after a failed sitcom Going Places), Locklear played possibly her greatest known part, the vixen Amanda Woodward on the series Melrose Place from 1993 to 1999. She was originally brought on as a guest star in an attempt to enhance the ratings, and her billing in the credits reflected this. Despite eventually becoming a regular cast member, she continued to be listed as a “Special Guest Star” through the total series. Locklear also won First Americans in the Arts: Best Actress in a TV series for her role on Melrose Place. After her run on the show, she was immediately on another TV sitcom, Spin City, opposite Michael J. Fox. She was similarly brought in as a successful ratings boost for this show.[citation necessary] Locklear starred in the airport drama LAX, which ran from 2004 to 2005. Locklear also aided for 6 years as the spokesperson for the Health and Tennis Corporation of America.
