Original Melrose Place cast member Laura Leighton is going to make an appearance on the CW's new Melrose Place, joining the CW pilot as a recurring.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will reprise her role as the irresponsible and scheming Sydney Andrews, one of the most popular characters on the Fox series.

In the dramatic fifth-season finale of Melrose Place in 1997 - and Leighton's last episode on the show -- Sydney was run over by a car on her wedding day in a near-fatal accident.

While she was presumed dead for the rest of the Fox series, she now is back at Melrose Place, and while the script is being kept under wraps, sources said she would be the landlord to the new crop of tenants.
