Kari Wuhrer

Kari Samantha Wuhrer, (born April 28, 1967 in Brookfield, Connecticut). She is an actress and a singer.

She is the daughter of Andrew and Karin, and has three siblings. As a teenager she sang in nightclubs, sneaking out of the family home to perform. Kari began studying acting at the age of 13. She studied drama at New York University (NYU), then at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. She later took graduate-level classes at Columbia University. Signed by Ford's Model Talent Division, she first appeared in several commercials including Clairol hair-spray advertisements.

Her first movie role was a part in Fire with Fire (1986). Her first television break was working for MTV as a VJ and as a co–host in Remote Control. She came to fame in the series Sliders as Maggie Beckett, joining the cast as a regular in 1997 and staying until 2000.

Highlighted movie roles include:

  • Eight Legged Freaks (2002)
  • Berserker (2001)
  • Anaconda (1997)

She has also starred as video game character Special Agent Tanya Adams in the titles Red Alert 2 and its sequel, Yuri's Revenge, installments of the popular Command & Conquer series of real-time strategy games.

Wuhrer signed a record deal with Rick Rubin and her debut album was called Shiny, released in 1999. She plays the guitar and the flute as well as singing.

Since February 2005, Wuhrer joined the cast of the soap opera General Hospital as FBI Agent Reese Marshall, the current love interest of mobster Sonny Corinthos. But in September of that year, Wuhrer was fired from General Hospital because the heads at ABC television and "General Hospital" were convinced, arguably, that viewers were disinterested in the character. The larger majority of viewers - as expressed in various soap polls time and time again - contend that Kari Wuhrer was not the problem but rather the writing of the character of "Reese" had left much to be desired. She will make her final episode this fall

In the late 1980s she dated rock singer Dean Davidson. She was married to Daniel Salin in 1995, and divorced in 1999. Kari is presently married to the film producer James Scura since 2003. She gave birth to their first child, a boy named Enzo, in January 2004 and is expecting her second child in April 2006.

Wuhrer was voted #73 in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2001 and #36 in Maxim magazine's 50 sexiest women countdown (1999).
