A leggy brunette supermodel, Carol Alt was also a "Cover Girl" makeup representative. Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, she began her modeling career at age 16 and has been seen on more than 600 magazine covers. Alt perhaps is best known for her 1982 Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover. Since the late 1980s, she has appeared in numerous Italian-made films and TV programs. In the USA, Alt is perhaps best-known for her starring role opposite Eric Roberts in the syndicated "Vendetta: Secrets of a Mafia Bride" (1991) and its 1993 sequel "Vendetta II: The New Mafia." She also co-starred in the short-lived adventure series "Thunder in Paradise" (syndicated, 1994). More recently, Alt appeared in "Private Parts" (1997) as an airline passenger to whom Howard Stern recounts his life story and had the lead in the syndicated series "Peter Benchley's Amazon" (1999-2000).
