Leann Hunley (born February 25, 1955 in Forks, Washington) is an American film actress and model.
Hunley is the youngest of four children of a fisherman and a beautician.
She began working as a call center worker and part-time secretary after finishing school at the University of Washington before emerging as the winner of the Miss Hawaii beauty pageant in 1977.
The main prize was a supporting role in the television series Hawaii Five Zero – the springboard for her career as an actress was laid.
Hunley has since appeared in many popular television series and feature films and graced the covers of numerous magazines; not only in the USA, but also in the Netherlands.
She had been married to Bill Sheridan since 1980. The marriage was divorced in 2001.
