TIA CARRIERE
Princess from Hawaii
Finds Great Success!


Tia Carriere

GARTH'S MAJOR BABE!
SULTRY, SEXY AND
SLAMMIN' ASIAN WOMAN!

Find out how this gorgeous Filipino/Hawaiian/Asian creature's career developed in films with many of the top male stars in the film industry! Tia Carriere

Althea Janairo, known more popularly as Tia Carrere, was born on January 2, 1966 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Of Filipino descent, she comes from a relatively small immediate family, consisting of her two divorced parents and one younger sister who currently attends the University of Hawaii. Althea's nickname "Tia" was made because her little sister, Alesaundra, couldn't pronounce her name. The name "Carrere" is a tribute to Barbara Carrera. Tia has been married Elie Samaha, a Tia Carriere Lebanese-Italian man, since November 22, 1992 and while she plans on having kids of her own, her busy work schedule doesn't permit it at the time.

The actress/singer is best known as the Chinese singer in Wayne's World, but has also played prominent roles in several other blockbusters including Rising Sun (with Sean Connery & Wesley Snipes), Hollow Point, High School High, & True Lies (w/ Arnold Schwarzenegger). In addition to producing several songs on the Wayne's World soundtrack, Tia has previously released Tia Carriere looking GREAT! an album called "Dream," drawing on voice lessons she's had since age 11. She & her husband also own their own production company, Phoenician Films.

Tia's current projects include Kull the Conquerer (a Conan-esque adventure with Kevin Sorbo) and Top of the World (with Dennis Hopper and David Alan Grier). Tia Carriere in a Bikini looking for something!

Tia, despite phenomenal success, has managed to keep her image a pure one and has categorically refused to do any nude scenes or photo shoots.
