Biography for Kari Wührer

Kari Samantha Wührer (born Apr. 28, 1967 (52 years ago)) is an American actress and singer, sometimes credited as Kari Salin.

Early years

Wührer was born in Brookfield, Connecticut, the daughter of Karin (née Noble), a payroll accountant, and Andrew Wührer, a police officer and car salesman. She has three siblings. As a teenager, she sang in nightclubs, sneaking out of the family home to perform. Wührer began studying acting at the age of 13 at the Wooster School. She studied drama at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Marymount Manhattan College, Columbia University, and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London with famed teacher Uta Hagen.

Career

Wührer's first TV break was working for MTV on Remote Control (1987, 32 years ago), before moving on to film. After appearing in The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990, 29 years ago) and the leading lady role of Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time (1991, 28 years ago), she then starred in over a dozen straight-to-video sexploitation movies, most notably Sex and the Other Man (1996, 23 years ago) and Spider's Web (2001, 18 years ago). In between, she co-starred in a Canadian art movie entitled Vivid (1997, 22 years ago) (also released as Luscious). Wührer appeared in the TV series Swamp Thing as Abigail from 1991-1993.

Wührer came to mainstream fame in 1997 (22 years ago) on the series Sliders as Maggie Beckett, joining the cast as a regular and staying until the show ended in 2000 (19 years ago). Later mainstream movie roles include Anaconda (1997, 22 years ago), Berserker (2001, 18 years ago) and Eight Legged Freaks (2002, 17 years ago). Wührer is also well known by many gamers for her role in Westwood Studios' PC game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and its subsequent expansion pack, Yuri's Revenge as Special Agent Tanya.

Wührer signed a record deal with Rick Rubin and her debut album was called Shiny, released in 1999 (20 years ago). She plays the guitar and the flute as well as sings.

Wührer, who considered an offer to appear nude in Playboy in 1998 (21 years ago), was later voted #76 on the FHM 100 Sexiest Women of 2000 (19 years ago). #73 in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2001 (18 years ago), #36 in Maxim magazine (55 walls)'s 50 Sexiest Women Countdown (1999, 20 years ago), #64 on Celebrity Skin's 100 Sexiest Stars of All Time, and #4 in the Celebrity Nudity Database most popular actresses (1999, 20 years ago).

Her breast implants encapsulated during the filming of Spider's Web (2001, 18 years ago) so she had them removed. She later wrote an article for the sep. 2002 (17 years ago) issue of Glamour Magazine about the insecurities that led her to get implants early in her career and the sense of self-acceptance she acquired. After its publication, she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and discussed the pressure she received from a prominent record producer to get the implants, during what she called "the era of the Video Vixen".
