Sheree J. Wilson had her eye on a career in style when she got her degree in fashion merchandizing from the University of Colorado, but when she was mistaken for a model during a fashion shoot, her career path began veering toward the limelight. Within a few years, she was an accomplished model living in Manhattan and expanding her creative life to include acting. She almost immediately won a starring role in the 1984 comedy Crimewave. From that point on, Wilson worked regularly, securing such impressive parts as April Stevens on the hit show Dallas, which she stayed with from 1986-1991. After Dallas ended, the actress found additional success on the show Walker, Texas Ranger.
