Barbara Carrera was a top fashion model before turning to a career as an actress in films and television. The statuesque Nicaraguan-born beauty's dark looks graced the pages and covers of such magazines as VOGUE, PARIS MATCH, HARPER'S BAZAAR, PLAYBOY in the 1960s. She broke into features portraying a model in "Puzzle of a Downfall Child" (1970), starring Faye Dunaway. Her first role of substance in "Master Gunfighter" (1976) saw Carrera as little more than window dressing for co-star Tom Laughlin before essaying the role of a tiger-woman involved with Michael York in the 1977 remake of "The Island of Dr. Moreau." The actress had what was perhaps her best known role, however, as Bond Girl Fatima Blush opposite Sean Connery in "Never Say Never Again" (1983). She also was seen as Patrick Dempsey's first adult sexual conquest in "Loverboy" (1989). Dropping out of film work for several years, Carrera returned opposite Louise Fletcher in "Tryst" (1995), and in "Love Is All There Is" (1996), paired with Paul Sorvino in a modern spin on Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet."
