Biography

A tall, dark-haired, porcelain-skinned beauty who became a leading lady of numerous TV series, Connie Sellecca has also designed her own line of fashions for Montgomery Ward, modeled for Revlon, and had a very public marriage to TV anchor-turned-singer John Tesh. She moved to NYC from Pomona to pursue an acting career right out of high school. After several unrewarding years, her career started off with a bang as the female star of her first TV job, playing a mysterious woman risen from the dead in "The Bermuda Depths" (ABC, 1978). Sellecca then concentrated on TV series work, beginning with "Flying High" (CBS, 1978), as a flight attendant. She then played the lovely assistant to the head of a multinational corporation in the short-lived "Beyond Westworld" (CBS, 1980) before finding success as William Katt's girlfriend in "The Greatest American Hero" (ABC, 1981-83). In 1983, she scored what would be her star-making role, that of Christine Francis, assistant to the general manager (James Brolin) of "Hotel" (ABC, 1983-88). Her next two attempts at series were short-lived: "P.S. I Luv You" (CBS, 1991) cast her as a sort-of outrageous woman in a witness protection program, while the primetime serial "Second Chances" (CBS, 1993) was canceled after its sets were destroyed in a January 1994 earthquake. Sellecca remained active, however, in TV-movies in efforts like "The Last Fling" (ABC, 1987), "Turn Back the Clock" (NBC, 1989) and "Miracle Landing" (CBS, 1990). Sellecca turned producer as well as star with "A House of Secrets and Lies" (CBS, 1992), in which she was a woman addicted to her womanizing husband, and she was stalked in Paris in "Passport to Murder" (NBC, 1993), and a bigamist in "She Led Two Lives" (NBC, 1994). She was a woman who finds her long-lost first love in "A Holiday to Remember" (CBS, 1995). More recently, Sellecca played a woman in danger of the Mob in "Mary Higgins Clark's While My Pretty One Sleeps" (Family Channel, 1997).
