Veronica Hamel

Hamel began a fashion modelling career after being discovered by Eileen Ford. In her first film role, Hamel played a model in 1971’s Klute, which was followed by roles in the disaster films Beyond the Poseidon Adventure and When Time Ran Out. She was the model in the last cigarette commercial televised in the U.S. for Virginia Slims, which premiered at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 1970, on The Tonight Show.

She had been a model in print ads not just for Slims, but also for Pall Mall Gold cigarettes. Veronicah began appearing in TV series in 1975. She was portrayed as Kelly Garrett on Charlie’s Angels but reportedly declined the role. Producer Aaron Spelling appeared as Jaclyn Smith instead. Hamel is probably well remembered for playing Joyce Davenport, the dedicated public defender who too happened to be the love interest of police captain Frank Furillo, on the long-running TV series Hill Street Blues from 1981-87.

Veronica was a five-time Emmy nominee for that role. Alan Alda’s 1988 film A New Life cast her in a leading role as his doctor and love interest. Hamel was cast as Elizabeth, the wife of Charles Grodin’s character in the movie Taking Care of Business in 1990. Hamel was named on Us magazine’s “Best Dressed” list for 1983.

In 2002, Veronica also appeared on Hill Street Blues creator Steven Bochco’s legal drama, Philly. In the late 2000s, she had a recurring role in the NBC television series Third Watch and appeared as Margo Shephard, Jack’s mother, in the ABC series Lost.
