A sexy, attractive actress-singer who gained recognition as an MTV veejay and used that as a springboard for an acting career, Kari Wuhrer began to build leading roles in pay TV-movies and feature films in the 1990s.

On TV, Wuhrer went from the cable TV series "Swampthing" (1989) to hosting MTV's "Remote Control" game show to becoming a veejay all within about a year. Her veejay status helped Wuhrer begin to get parts in Hollywood, first in an episode of "Married...With Children" (1991), and then as femme fatale Robin Farr on the short-lived Fox drama series "Class of '96" (1993). She was also a college student in her first significant dramatic TV role, as she fell for her professor (Eric Roberts) in HBO's "Sensation" (1994). In "Terminal Justice" (HBO, 1996), she was a sensuous star used as a model for a virtual reality clone and continued in the sci-fi genre in 1997 when she joined the cast of "Sliders" (Fox; Sci-Fi Channel, 1995-98).
