Mini Bio (1)

Caroline Williams began her career in Texas, co-starring for revered cinema master Louis Malle in his Corpus Christi-based film, Alamo Bay (1985). She worked opposite stars Ed Harris and Amy Madigan in what was her first feature film, after only six months of training at the Studio For Actors, under the tutelage of Chris Wilson. She had established herself in the Texas movie marketplace doing commercials, industrial films and voiceover work. Following "Alamo Bay", she moved to Dallas and furthered her career, with co-stars, in The Legend of Billie Jean (1985) (dir. Matthew Robbins) and Getting Even (1986) (dir. Dwight Little). When Tobe Hooper and L.M. "Kit" Carson began casting for the sequel to Hooper's iconic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), they discovered the punkass actress, who ran screaming down the hallway of the casting office. She burst into the room, pulled the chairs from beneath the duo and played the brief dialogue, while huddled in a corner. In that often told moment, she won the role from 440 actresses from both coasts.

After the successful release of the film, she moved to Hollywood to continue her career in a mix of horror: Stepfather II (1989) (dir. Jeff Burr), Leprechaun 3 (1995) (dir. Brian Trenchard Smith) and mainstream films: Days of Thunder (1990) (dir. Tony Scott), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) (dir. Ron Howard). She continues to split her efforts between series TV guest star roles, such as Grey's Anatomy (2005) (dir. Debbie Allen) and The Mentalist (2008) (dir. Charles Beeson).

Luckily, her fan base enjoys her continuing dedication to the horror genre, and recent releases, such as Tales of Halloween (2015) and the upcoming Blood Feast (2016), keep them well-satisfied. Her avid and enthusiastic participation at conventions and personal appearances ensure that this charismatic actress will continue to inspire and attract fans from around the world.

Personal Quotes (3)

[on acting in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)] "I had never been around a chain-saw before the film, and for some reason, it never registered with me that this guy would be chasing me with a chainsaw, and it would be running!"
[on acting in current horror films] I think this is a very exciting time to be working in the horror genre again. It has this aura of those 70s gritty horror films, where there's this sort of wild attitude about now. It's not about the studios anymore, and I love being a part of it. This is why I love being an actress.
[on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)] It got me to where I am today. It brought me a professional life that I wouldn't have had. It brought me to California where I met my husband and I had my kids and I had my family, and twenty years later it's sort of coming back and kissing me on the cheek a little bit and I'm real happy about that.
