Heather Locklear was “afraid” of her return to television.
The actress appears as Kristine Carlson in the upcoming made-for-television movie Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story – which is based on the book series by Kristine and her husband, Dr Richard Carlson – and she feared for her. first role on the small screen in four years.
Speaking to reporters at Lifetime’s Fall Movies press event this week, she said, “The hard part was so scary for me.”
A moving scene in which Kristine learns that her husband – played by Jason MacDonald – has died was filmed on the second day of filming.
Heather turned to Kristine herself to help her find the highlight and added, “She said, ‘It’s almost like a child is dying. “And it stopped me in my tracks.”
Although the star was unsure if she would be able to reach the right emotional level required by the scene, she settled down and “felt very safe”.
And while Heather – whose last TV role was in Too Close to Home from 2016 to 2017 – had other worries about remembering her lines after a few years away, she said she found “so easy “to resume old habits.
She told People, “I don’t know why I was so scared to memorize lines, how about getting the emotion across.”
Heather’s comeback comes two years after she indisputably pleaded eight petty crimes related to two run-ins with cops and rescue workers.
She was convicted and ordered to enroll in a residential rehabilitation program as part of her sentence.
