Birthplace: Trenton, New Jersey
Amy Rose Locane-Bovenizer (born December 19, 1971) is an American television and film actress known for her role in John Waters' 1990 musical comedy Cry-Baby. In 1992, Locane played the role of Sandy Harling in the first season of the prime time soap opera Melrose Place.
Locane was born in Trenton, New Jersey. By age 12, she had performed in more than 60 commercials before being cast as a series regular on the sitcom Spencer (1984).
Locane was a member of the original cast of the prime time soap opera Melrose Place, but left the series after only 13 episodes.
Among Locane's film roles, she played Johnny Depp's love interest in John Waters's 1990 cult-classic film Cry-Baby. She also twice played the girlfriend of Brendan Fraser, in the films School Ties and Airheads, as well as Jessica Lange's daughter in the 1994 film Blue Sky.
In 2006, Locane became engaged and retired from films but acted occasionally in local community theater.
In 2008, Locane married Mark Bovenizer. They are presently in the process of divorcing.
On June 27, 2010, Locane-Bovenizer was involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision in Montgomery, New Jersey. The crash killed 60-year-old Helene Seeman and seriously injured her husband Fred as they were turning into their driveway. Locane was driving 53 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone when the other vehicle made a left hand turn in front of her. The Seemans' vehicle was traveling three miles per hour when the collision occurred entirely in Locane's lane of travel.
Following the crash, testing revealed Locane's blood alcohol level was three times the limit for legal impairment. In December 2010, Locane was indicted for aggravated manslaughter and assault by automobile. On November 27, 2012, a Somerset County jury convicted Locane of vehicular homicide and assault by auto. On February 14, 2013, Locane was sentenced to three years in prison for the crime. Using his discretion, Montgomery Superior Court Judge Robert B. Reed imposed less than the minimum five-year sentence, due to mitigating factors that included her younger daughter's Crohn's disease. While serving her sentence, Locane was in custody at Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women and was released on parole on June 12, 2015. On July 22, 2016, a New Jersey appeals court ruled that the three-year sentencing would be re-reviewed due what the court felt was an inadequate explanation by Reed for leniency. Upon review, Reed stated in September 2016 he had erred in his decision, and that she should serve an additional six months. However, on January 13, 2017, Reed ruled that Locane would not have to go back to prison, saying her conduct since her release showed that she was not a threat to society. Locane said the memory of Seeman will "be forever in her thoughts."
