With a successful start in the modelling field, the beautiful Eva LaRue took the bold step to pursue a career in modelling and she signed with Judith Fontaine Agency before moving over to Frederick’s of Hollywood to model women underwears. In addition to her modelling exploits, Eva was also seen in the 1987 film The Barbarians as Kara and this opened doors for her to land roles in a number of other films like Charles in Charge, Perfect Strangers, Freddy’s Nightmares, Married…with Children, Dragnet, Dangerous Curves and several others in the 1990s.
Her rise to stardom came about with her role in the sitcom All My Children which was aired on ABC.
