Early on in her modeling career, Carol Alt was lauded as "the Face" and "the Most Beautiful Woman in the World" by Life and Playboy magazines respectively. A native of Queens, NY, she became a fashion model at age 16 and soon rose to the top of her profession. Alt made her film debut in 1983 playing a small role in Portfolio, but she did not become an actress until 1986 when she starred in the Italian film Monte Napoleone. Alt has developed quite a following in Europe and the bulk of her film and television work has been produced in Italy. In 1991, she appeared in Vendetta, a television miniseries. Alt occasionally appears in U.S.-produced films, most notably, Private Parts (1996), The Look, Twisted Fortune, and Woody Allen's To Rome with Love. Alt also has appeared on-stage.
