Carol Alt Biography And Filmography:

Carol Alt was born in Flushing, Queens, New York, to Muriel, who worked as a model before her marriage, and Anthony, a New York City Fireman. Carol has two sisters, Christine, a model, and Karen; and a brother, Anthony. She was raised in East Williston, New York and attended The Wheatley School and Hofstra University.

Alt's first break came from modeling during the 1980's, and she was seen on the cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine, but gained real fame in 1982 when she was seen on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. During the 1980's  Carol appeared on over 400 magazine covers worldwide, becoming one the most famous models of her time. During the height of her career, she was seen in ad campaigns for Diet Pepsi, General Motors, Cover Girl Cosmetics, Noxema, Hanes and numerous others. She was the first model to make her own posters and calendars. During the 1980'2, she publicly left the fashion and modeling industry to pursue acting - her passion.


Carol Alt's first film role was as an Elite Model in "Portfolio" (1983) where top models star in a drama revealing the guts of the fashion world. Then she appeared in the television series "Capital" (1982-1987), this daytime serial dramatizes the power struggles and scheming between two quarreling political families. Alt then was hired and cast in the dramatic movie "Bye Bye Baby" (1988) about a married couple from Milan who is tempted into mutual betrayal during a holiday in Mauritius Islands. 

Carol then took a more adventurous role in the action film "Beyond Justice" (1992) about a woman's ex-husband, who is the son of an Arab chieftain, who kidnaps their young teenage son and brings him back to Morocco. She then teamed with "Hulk Hogan" in the adventure film "Thunder in Paradise" (1993) where Hogan starred as R. J. "Hurricane" Spencer who is a Navy S. E. A. L. and confirmed bachelor under pressure to make ends meet. The movie franchise was so successful that producers quickly rolled out "Thunder in Paradise II" (1994) and "Thunder in Paradise 3" (1994).

Carol started to grow more confident in her movie roles, especially the cops and robbers types of movies, and appeared in the David Frost directed action thriller "Ring Of Steel" (1994) about a champion fencer who accidentally kills an opponent in a match. Disgraced, he is blackballed from the fencing community. Alt then appeared as the girlfriend of a bartender on parole who gets involved with his prior girlfriend, only to discover he's part of her criminal scheme. More action followed starring alongside Judge Reinhold in "Crackerjack 2" (1996) about a policeman working alone who must rescue his girlfriend and a trainload of other hostages from vicious criminals in a mountain tunnel hideout. Then she took the role of Gloria in the Howard Stern and Robin Quivers comedic biography "Private Parts" (1997), the auto-biographical story of Howard Stern, the radio-rebel who is now also a TV-personality, an author and a movie star. 

After starring in "Storm Trooper" (1998), Alt was cast in a supporting role in "The Protector" about soldier of fortune Ken Conway, who gets a job offer from his former fiancee to find a missing scientist. She then jumped back into television for the movie "Catch Me If You Can" about a twelve year old boy with an attitude who witnesses a mob killing, and the job of protecting him falls to a cop played by Tim Matheson. 

Returning to the big screen, Alt was next hired in the horror flick "Revelation" (1999), about a man looking for his family, and the Christians, whom the rest of the world has started to call The Haters, are being framed for murders and terrorist plots. The following year marked a milestone for the actress, as she finally ventured into the world of comedy with "My Best Friend's Wife" (2001) starring John Stamos, about two friends who are about to learn that they are "Grownups."

The following year it was back to the dramatic thrillers in "Hitters" (2002) where a respected civic leader is caught between two rival underworld crime families on the verge of war. Another comedy followed with "The Look" (2003), where a Group of young teens come to New York for a modeling competition. Alt then teamed with Bruce Boxleitner for the sci-fi thriller "Snakehead Terror" (2004), set in a small town trying to recover from hard economic times and is under threat when a ravenous snake fish mutates and survives previous attempts to kill it. But her next three films failed to gain much attention but she still gained experience working in "Swarmed" (2005), "The Signs of the Cross" (2005) and "Fatal Trust" (2006).

Carol Alt then joined Orson Bean in the comedy "Mattie Fresno and the Holoflux Universe" (2007) and "Twisted Fortune" (2007) with Dave Attell, about a broke thief who finds he's got a bottle cap worth a million dollars. Unfortunately, he discovers this while robbing a convenience store. In 2008, the actress appeared in her first Western themed film with "The Man Who Came Back" (2008) about prostitution, murder and perjury. 


Carol Alt has also had a number of guest appearances on television shows such as "Houston Knights", "B.L. Stryker", "Baywatch Nights", "Wings", "King of the Hill" and "Diagnosis Murder". For two years she appeared in 23 episodes of the television series "Amazon" (1999-2000)  

She was also a contestant on NBC's 2008 reality show "The Celebrity Apprentice", with Donald Trump, competing for her charity, the Tony Alt Memorial Foundation, which raises funds for scholarships that will allow young adults to continue their studies. She ended up in third place before being fired, but was brought back for the final task of the show and was chosen by finalist Piers Morgan to help him to become the Celebrity Apprentice.
