Amy Locane: Melrose Place Actress

December 17, 2010

The original Melrose Place actress Amy Locane has found herself in some serious trouble with the law that could result in her spending years in prison. Not exactly sure who I am talking about well no worries I have all the information on who Amy is and what she did that could force her to spend time behind bars, there are of course pictures and a video too.

In what is really sad news actress Amy Locane, who played the southern belle Sandy on the original Melrose Place, was charged with killing someone in a drunk driving accident last night. According to TMZ Locane’s car hit the passengers side of another car killing the woman sitting in that seat, the driver sustained serious injuries and was flown to a near by hospital. The accident took place in Montgomery, New Jersey. Amy admitted to having several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel, she was arrested on the scene and later charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by auto. If she is convicted Locane could face anywhere from 5-10 years in jail. I told you it was some serious trouble and very sad too.

UPDATE: On December 16th Amy Locane-Bovenizer was indicted for her part in the fatal car crash last summer. The 39 year old was charged with aggravated manslaughter and assault by an auto. If convicted she could spend anywhere from 10 to 30 years in prison. Helene Seeman was killed in the accident and Locane has admitted to drinking wine that night before she got behind the wheel.

The New Jersey born, Trenton to be exact, Locane was discovered by a local photographer. After the photographer sent her picture to an agent in NYC Amy quickly began booking commercials. Her first big break came when she landed the role of Chad Lowe’s sister on the NBC show Spencer. The show only lasted a year but Amy certainly caught people’s attention. She landed her first movie Lost Angles at age 16 and from there her career took off. Amy landed roles in films like Cry Baby, School Ties and Blue Sky’s. In 1992 she was cast by Aaron Spelling to star in the Beverly Hills 90210 spin off, this was pre Heather Locklear. However she left the ratings challenged show after only 13 episodes. Once her days as Sandy were done Amy went back to focusing on roles on the big screen and she got them too. She starred it great movies like Bongwater, Carried Away and Secretary.

Locane has been married to Mark Bovenizer, a wine specialist since 2008. The couple has two daughters Paige and Avery.

Actress Amy Locane Bovenizer may not have been on the original Melrose Place very long but it seems to be her claim to fame so to speak. Check out the pictures and video below of Amy.

    Not because we are all so perfect, but if you do the crime, you have to do the time. Bottom line, somebody is dead!
