Biography

Michele Carey, who showed talent as a musician from an early age, seemed destined to work in the entertainment business. Making the not uncommon move from modeling to acting in the mid-1960s, Carey's first roles were on TV, which included guest appearances on the popular spy saga "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and the less beloved George Burns sitcom "Wendy and Me". Her first film role was a leap into prominence, in which she appeared in a Howard Hawks western, "El Dorado", opposite John Wayne and Robert Mitchum. Despite these early successes, Carey's career never really took off in a meaningful way. So she trundled back to TV for a few guest-starring turns in the frontier saga "The Wild Wild West" and a one-episode role on the long-running "Gunsmoke". Firmly situating herself as a western woman, she made it back to the big screen to do pretty-girl duty as Elvis Presley's femme fatale love interest in the singer's 1968 offering "Live a Little, Love a Little". In the following decade she would pop up occasionally in both movies and TV, although those appearances were infrequent. Carey attempted a comeback in the 1980s, scoring a role in the stunt-man-turned-crime-fighter TV series "The Fall Guy", as well as in "The Stay Awake", an obscure slasher film set in a Roman Catholic girl's school.
