Sheridan was honored in her native England, receiving the 2006 Glamour Women of the Year Award for Best U.S. TV Actress, adding to her back-to-back 2005-2006 Screen Actors Guild Awards.Sheridan was born in Worthing, Sussex, England, the daughter of actress Sally Sheridan (née Adams). She discovered a passion for ballet as a small child and studied intensely, broadening her love of the arts as a student at the Arts Educational School in London. In addition to the theatre, she nurtured her talents as an avid equestrienne along with a rigorous thirst for reading and a love of the works of William Shakespeare. Moving to Los Angeles and being courted to explore her talents was a natural progression.Sheridan became a household name portraying the beautiful, powerful and manipulative Paige Matheson on Knots Landing. This led to a variety of roles in other projects, including The People Next Door with Faye Dunaway, A Time to Heal opposite Gary Cole, Indictment: The McMartin Trial with James Woods and Dead Husbands with John Ritter, along with a special guest appearance on the season finale of Will & Grace.Sheridan was first introduced to film audiences in Rob Reiner's The Sure Thing opposite John Cusack, going on to appear in other film comedies such as Noises Off... opposite Michael Caine, Spy Hard opposite Leslie Nielsen, Beverly Hills Ninja with Chris Farley, I Woke Up Early the Day I Died with Billy Zane and Code Name: The Cleaner opposite Cedric the Entertainer and Lucy Liu.With an affinity for the animated world, she has brought her English accent to the Disney animated series The Legend of Tarzan and was also heard as a Russian fly in the animated feature Fly Me to the Moon 3D with Tim Curry, Kelly Ripa, Christopher Lloyd and Buzz Aldrin. Additionally, Sheridan voiced the role of "Zenna" in Promenade Pictures' animated film Noah, in which she stars opposite Michael Keaton, Rob Schneider, Marcia Gay Harden and Sir Ben Kingsley. She also appeared in the independent comedy Jewtopia, based on the famous play.Generous with her time, Sheridan has lent her devotion and star presence to philanthropic causes including those focused on cancer, women and children at risk, and natural disaster relief (e.g., Hurricane Katrina), as well as such entities as the Red Cross, Humane Society, Last Chance for Animals, Best Friends Animal Society and The Amanda Foundation.
