Carey Lowell Edit Profile

actor , model

Carey Lowell is an American actress and former model.

Background

Lowell was born in Huntington, New York, the daughter of geologist James Lowell.

Education

After a year at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she majored in literature, she moved to New York City to pursue modeling, and modeled for such clients as Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, and at some unspecified time attended New York University. She also studied at Manhattan's Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre.

Career

She spent much of her childhood living in various countries, including Libya, the Netherlands, France, and in the US, in Houston, Texas and Denver, Colorado, where her family settled when she was 12. Lowell broke into acting in the film Dangerously Close followed by a small role in the Robin Williams movie Club Paradise. She went on to roles including those of Bond girl in the James Bond movie Licence to Kill (1989) and, starting in 1996, Assistant District Attorney on the television drama Law & Order, a character she reprised in 2005 for a guest role on its spinoff, Law & Order: Trial by Jury.

Immediately before that role, however, she had become frustrated with her acting career and had applied to study documentary filmmaking at New York University. She left acting after the mid-2000s. In 2012, Lowell lent her likeness and voice while reprising her Licence to Kill role in the video game 007 Legends.
