On the Fly with… MELROSE PLACE Star Laura Leighton


ON WHAT BROUGHT HER BACK TO 4616 MELROSE: “Who wouldn’t want to come back and play the character again?” exclaimed actress Laura Leighton when asked by the TV Addict to explain what drew her back to the role that put her on the map. “Sydney was one of my favorite characters ever to play and to get the opportunity to do it again… well, it was sort of a no-brainer.”

ON WHAT IT FELT LIKE TO STEP BACK ON TO THE NOW ICONIC COURTYARD: “It felt like stepping back in time,” said the actress. “It was the same, but new and improved. Like the complex went through a very expensive remodel.”

ON WHETHER OR NOT SYDNEY EVER REALLY DIES: “I can’t speak for the writer’s intentions. I’m just going along for the ride.”

(A ride which begins Tuesday September 8 on the CW at 9PM, Wednesday September 9th on Global TV in Canada)
