Tia Carrere got her first big break on the soap opera General Hospital. For three years she played the role of Jade Soong Chung but it was her role in Wayne’s World that changed everything for her. She played Mike Myer’s love interest, Cassandra in both Wayne’s World and Wayne’s World 2. People named her to its 50 Most Beautiful People list after that.
This earned her many modeling gigs, including in the January 2003 issue of Playboy, and Maxim. She’s since done voice work in the movies Lilo & Stitch and Duck Dodgers. Recently she’s appeared on the reality shows Dancing with the Stars and The Celebrity Apprentice. She’s currently acting in the Netflix series AJ and the Queen.
