With her captivating good looks and desire to perform from an early age, Tia Carrere's journey to Hollywood was practically a foregone conclusion. Arriving on the mainland while barely out of high school, Carrere quickly began landing jobs as a model and actress, making small guest appearances on several episodic television series. Although initially cast as the ubiquitous "babe" in B-movie fare like 1991's "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man," Carrere quickly began being noticed by producers and fans alike. Her big break came with "Wayne's World" (1992), the unexpected comedy smash based on a "Saturday Night Live" (1975- ) skit of the same name. Carrere soon followed with roles in other high-profile films, the most successful being the role of a gorgeous sociopath in the Arnold Schwarzenegger spy romp, "True Lies" (1994). This would also be the high-water mark of Carrere's career, as what followed would be a string of sub-par film projects like "High School High" (1996) and "Kull the Conqueror" (1997), and a return to episodic television, including a sixth place finish on the second season of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ). Still, Carrere's indelible impression in the mid-1990s as a beautiful, yet versatile actress and the ultimate "babe" earned her a loyal following through the years.
