Josie Bissett: From Melrose Place to an Incredible Midlife

September 11, 2021

This week's guest is the incredible actress Josie Bissett.  Josie is recognized internationally for her role as the popular 'Jane Mancini' on FOX-TV's "Melrose Place," which ended its successful seven-year run in May 1999. 

The Seattle native began her career in front of the camera at the age of 12 as a model in print advertisements and television commercials.  At 16, she left home and moved to Japan to further her career and at 17 headed to Hollywood to make her mark.  Josie soon landed the role of 'Cara' on "The Hogan Family," where she spent two seasons.  Within two years of her arrival in Los Angeles, Josie was cast on "Melrose Place" and quickly became one of television's most recognizable actors. 

In Part 1 of our interview, we talk to Josie about her recent guest appearance on Fantasy Island and now as an empty nester, her desire to enter the acting world again.  She shares how her career started and what it was like to be married young in Hollywood.  We also dish on what it was like to work on the set of Melrose Place and so much more.

Part 2 of our Josie Bissett interview will be available on Wednesday.
