An attractive, petite character actress, Wilhoite has worked extensively in theater, film and TV. Known for her portrayals of strong, sassy women, she made her feature debut in the teen-sex comedy "Private School" (1983) and that same year ventured into TV-movies with "Quarterback Princess" (CBS). In addition to supporting Charles Bronson in J Lee Thompson's "Murphy's Law" (1986), she wrote and sang the title song. Wilhoit marked time in small roles in generally forgettable films (Sandra Locke's "Ratboy" 1986; Alan Parker's "Angel Heart" 1987) before landing parts like a college newspaper editor in "Campus Man" (also 1987) and reporter Hank O'Hare in "Brenda Starr" (1989). Other credits include "Lorenzo's Oil" (1992), "Fire in the Sky" (1993) and "Color of Night" (1994).
