Kari Wuhrer Detailed Biography -
When Kari was just three years old, she knew she would pursue show biz! She wanted to be Buffy on TV's "Family Affair" series. By the time she was 13, Kari was studying acting and making the rounds of auditions in New York City. In 1983, She was quickly signed by Ford's Model Talent Division. Commercials (for Clairol among others) and Off-Broadway came next and when Kari was 17, she was cast as Virginia Madsen's best friend in the film "Fire With Fire". In between her acting roles, Kari attended NYU's Drama Department and studied with the famed actress/teacher Uta Hagen and at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. Though she had recurring roles on the soaps Search For Tomorrow and As The World Turns, it was the Andrew Dice Clay film "Ford Fairlane" that gave her direction and her big break.
She realized music was her real dream (and still is). She had a band with a bunch of guys much older than her. They formed an innovative punk rock group called Freudian Slip, and played in clubs like CBGB's. Being hired as co-host of MTV's Remote Control and becoming a VeeJay for that music network was just the step her career really needed. While she's concentrated these days on Movies & TV, Music is very important to her and she has just completed recording an album with her producer, TK. You can hear a couple of.
