Althea Rae Duhinio Janario

Despite not making it past the first round of Star Search's singing competition in 1985, Hawaiian-born Althea Rae Duhinio Janario was spotted by a talent agent and cast in a movie shooting on location called Aloha Summer under the stage name "Tia Carrere."
She hasn't stopped working since.
Her big break was a two-year stint on the soap General Hospital.
From there she went on to various guest spots on tv series as well as co-starring roles in features including both Wayne's World films, where she performed her own singing!
Tia's done a lot of genre, both as a heroine and a villainess, either way looking good and obviously enjoying her work!
Currently, she's doing a lot of animation voice work, but we look forward to seeing her in the flesh on screen soon (like her recent guest appearances on Warehouse 13)
Trivia:
She was offered a regular role on A-Team, but had to turn it down to due to her contract with General Hospital!
She turned down a regular role on BayWatch to do Wayne's World.
She has three solo albums (including one Grammy winner) as well as performances on three soundtrack albums!
