Born and raised in England, Sheridan discovered a passion for ballet as a small child and studied furiously, 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 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 myriad of other roles including those in The People Next Door with Faye Dunaway, A Time To Heal, Indictment: The McMartin Trial opposite 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 Neilsen and Beverly Hills Ninja with Chris Farley and Chris Rock. With an affinity for the animated world, she has brought her English accent to the Disney animated series Tarzan and Jane and will soon be heard as a Russian fly in the animated feature Fly Me to the Moon with Tim Curry, Kelly Ripa, Christopher Lloyd and Buzz Aldrin.
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 as well as such organizations as the Red Cross, Humane Society, Wildlife Waystation, Starkey Hearing Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Walter Reed Hospital.
Having found much success in front of the camera, Sheridan has more recently turned her attention behind the scenes and is developing projects for film and television.
