Profile Bio Text
Carol Lynley (born February 13, 1942) is an American actress and former child model.
Lynley was born Carole Ann Jones in Manhattan, the daughter of Frances (née Felch), a waitress, and Cyril Jones. Her father was Irish and her mother, a native of New England, was of English, Scottish, Welsh, German, and Native American ancestry. She began her career as a child model under the name Carolyn Lee. When she started acting, after appearing on the April 22, 1957, cover of Life magazine at 15, she discovered that another actress already had registered the name, so she modified it to the homophone Carol Lynley.
Early on, Lynley distinguished herself in both the Broadway stage and Hollywood screen versions of the controversial drama Blue Denim (1959), in which the teenaged characters played by Lynley and co-star, Brandon deWilde, had to deal with an unwanted pregnancy. In 1959, Lynley was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for "Most Promising Newcomer – Female".
Lynley may be best known for her film roles in Return to Peyton Place, Under the Yum Yum Tree, Bunny Lake is Missing, The Cardinal, Harlow, and the original The Poseidon Adventure, in which she performed the Oscar-winning song "The Morning After" (but her singing voice actually was that of studio singer, Renee Armand).
Lynley appeared in the pilot television movies for Kolchak: The Night Stalker and Fantasy Island. Her many other series appearances included The Big Valley, Mannix, It Takes a Thief, Night Gallery, The Invaders, Kojak, Hawaii Five-O and Charlie's Angels. Lynley appeared in the fourth season The Man from U.N.C.L.E. two-part episode, "The Prince of Darkness Affair".
She posed nude for the March 1965 edition of Playboy magazine. In 2006, she appeared in a 30-minute film, Vic, co-written and directed by Sage Stallone, the late son of Sylvester Stallone.
She had an 18-year intermittent affair with David Frost.
