Veronica Hamel

Actress Veronica Hamel was born in Philadelphia (November 20, 1943). She graduated from Temple University, and started her career as a fashion model after being discovered by Eileen Ford. Her first role was playing a model in 1971's Klute.

She started appearing on TV in 1975; at one point she was considered for one of the lead roles on Charlie's Angels, but declined the role. Producer Aaron Spelling cast Jaclyn Smith instead.

Hamel is probably best remembered for playing Joyce Davenport, the hard-driving public defender and love interest of captain Frank Furillo, in the long-running TV series Hill Street Blues. She was named on Us magazine's Best Dressed list for 1983.

Years after Marylin Monroe's death, Hamel bought and lived in Monroe's Brentwood, Los Angeles, California home.

In October 2004 Hamel played Margo Shephard, Jack's mother, on the ABC television series Lost.
