Profile Bio Text
Barbara Carrera (born December 31, 1945) is a Nicaraguan-born American film and TV actress as well as a former model. Carrera was born Barbara Kingsbury in Bluefields, Nicaragua. Her mother, Dona Florencia, was a Nicaraguan of European and Native ancestry, and her father, Louis Kingsbury, was a U.S. ambassador/courier of English ancestry. There is some uncertainty regarding her year of birth, which some sources give as 1947 or 1951, but most list 1945. She apparently prefers to say 1953. Carrera came to the U.S. at age eleven and studied at a convent in Memphis for five years.
Carrera began a career as a model at the Eileen Ford agency at the age of 17, at which point she changed her last name to her mother`s maiden name, Carrera. In 1972, she appeared on the screen in a publicity role for the Chiquita bananas. Her first film role was as a fashion model in Puzzle of a Downfall Child (1970), which fared poorly at the box office. She later played in such films as The Island of Dr. Moreau, Lone Wolf McQuade, Condorman, Point of Impact, Tryst, and Embryo. For her portrayal of the villainess Fatima Blush in the James Bond movie Never Say Never Again, she earned a 1984 Golden Globe nomination for "Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture".
Carrera has married (and divorced) model Uva Harden, Baron Otto von Hoffman and Greek shipowner Nicholas Mavroleon. She has no children. She is currently friends with journalist Cameron Docherty.
