Mini Bio (1)
Slim, lovely and sultry brunette British beauty Karen Mayo-Chandler brought a winning blend of sexiness and classiness to a handful of enjoyably lowbrow exploitation features made in the 80s and 90s. Karen was born on April 18, 1958 in Sutton, Surrey, England. Slender and elegant, with blue eyes and brown hair, Karen started out as a model in Europe and then went to Hollywood to pursue an acting career. She had a small part as a receptionist in the smash hit blockbuster "Beverly Hills Cop." Mayo-Chandler's most memorable movie roles include enticing psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Gotbottom in the amusing "Hamburger ... The Motion Picture," luscious stripper Cassandra in "Stripped to Kill II: Live Girls," and foxy model Barbara in the nifty murder mystery slasher thriller "Out of the Dark." Karen worked twice for prolific B-flick director Jim Wynorski: she's at her spirited best as Diana Farrow in the delightfully outrageous "Hard to Die" and has a brief pre-credits cameo in "976-Evil II." Mayo-Chandler made guest appearances on the TV shows "ITV Playhouse," "Strangers," and "Bring 'Em Back Alive." She had a recurring role on the popular daytime soap opera "The Young and the Restless." She was a onetime girlfriend of Jack Nicholson and continued to act in films up until the late 90s. Karen Mayo-Chandler died at the tragically young age of 48 from breast cancer on July 11, 2006.
