Pretty brunette actress Chelsea Field made her TV debut in 1983 as a dancer on the music performance series "Solid Gold," yet she is undoubtedly best known for playing Teela, the Captain of the Royal Guard at the palace of Eternos, in the 1987 live-action He-Man movie "Masters of the Universe." Unfortunately, this action film was an absolute flop at the box office and was universally reviled by critics. Field rebounded with appearances on 1980s TV shows, scoring a one-off on the Golden Globe-winning drama "thirtysomething" and a recurring role on the Emmy-winning high school-set drama "The Bronx Zoo." In 1989 she landed the series regular role of Samantha Sullivan on the nurse-centered medical drama "Nightingales," which ultimately lasted only one season.

While Field hasn't managed to rise to star status, she worked steadily through the 1990s, scoring supporting roles in the Bruce Willis action-comedy "The Last Boy Scout" and two family-friendly aquatic animal-adventures, "Andre" and "Flipper."

In 1999, she had the odd opportunity to play a cruel ex-wife opposite her real-life husband, Scott Bakula, in the TV adaptation of Tom Clancy's crime novel "NetForce." After this, Field appeared less often in TV and film, exploring work in theater, and spending more time with her and Bakula's two sons, Wil and Owen.
