Laura Leighton's character Sydney Andrews is back from the dead to star in the CW's new version of Melrose Place.
"It was a near-fatal accident. You never actually saw her dead," says a source familiar with the show, referring to what looked like Sydney's demise in the original Melrose Place.
At the end of Season 5 of Melrose, a car struck Sydney on her wedding day and left fans believing that she'd died. But appearances can be deceiving: Leighton is back as Sydney who will be the landlord on the network's updated series.
The cast is complete, says a source, and they'll start shooting the pilot next week.

GRANTED: Nicole Kidman, 37, won her request for restraining orders against two freelance photographers Thursday after saying she had been a virtual prisoner in her Sydney home and feared for her safety because of them. The request followed the discovery of an electronic listening device outside her residence. Jamie Fawcett, 43, and Ben McDonald, 32, were ordered not to approach Kidman at her home or go within 60 ft. of her harbor-side home. Kidman said in a statement that she was grateful the court had granted the orders because she had been afraid to leave her home, reports the Associated Press.
