Mini Bio (1)

Frances Raines was a lovely and shapely brunette actress who popped up in a handful of enjoyably trashy low budget exploitation pictures made throughout the 80s. Raines was born on July 17, 1962 in Reno, Nevada. She's the grand niece of legendary actor Claude Rains and spent the bulk of her acting career in New York City. Her most memorable film roles are a skinny-dipping teen victim in the gruesome slasher flick "The Mutilator," a sweet innocent virgin model who's raped by a libidinous evil alien in the laughably lousy sci-fi schlock hoot "Breeders," a severely mistreated women's prison inmate in the sleazy chicks-in-chains romp "Bad Girls' Dormitory," and a battered gangster's moll in the outrageously tacky "Riot on 42nd St." She was the lead female in Howard Stern's comedic film debut "Ryder, P.I." Frances appeared Off-Broadway in several plays into the late 90s under her married name, and most enjoyed her turn in "Ladies At The Alamo" impressing the author, Paul Zindel . After becoming a parent, she took smaller roles in larger films, and commercial work that made less demands on her being away from her family. She's been married for 25 years and has a son. Frances continues to live between the Hamptons and Hawaii. She has enjoyed making creative contributions to the family's fragrance licensing business. From time to time, she collaborates with writer friends in helping them adapt novels into screenplays.
