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 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 2008, Locane married Mark Bovenizer, a local businessman and volunteer fireman from New Jersey. As a result of the marriage Locane legally hyphenated her surname to include that of her spouse. They have two daughters, one born in 2007, the other born in 2009.
On June 27, 2010, Locane-Bovenizer was involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision in Montgomery, New Jersey. The crash killed a 60-year-old woman and seriously injured the woman's husband as they were turning into their driveway. 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, the judge 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 the judge for leniency. Upon review, the judge in the case stated in September 2016 he had erred in his decision, and that she should serve an additional six months.
