Who is Carey Lowell?

Born Carey Evelyn Lowell on the 11th February 1961, in Huntington, New York State USA, she is an actress and former model, best known to the world as the Bond girl Pam Bouvier in the film “License to Kill”, starring Timothy Dalton as James Bond. She is also known to have modeled for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and other popular fashion brands.

Early Life, Parents, and Education

Carey is the daughter of James Lowell, who is a famed geologist,  and she spent her childhood in several countries, from Libya to the Netherlands, France, before the family settled in Denver, Colorado USA when she turned 12. The identity of her mother has been left out of the media. She went to Bear Creek High School before she enrolled at the University of Colorado at Boulder, however, after only a year, she transferred to New York University. She also studied acting at Manhattan’s Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre.

Model Career

Right out of high school, Carey was signed to the Ford Modeling Agency, and started building a name for herself in the modeling world. She became quite successful, which resulted in her being a model for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, and other successful fashion brands and designers. However, she would eventually focus on education and acting, foregoing her modeling career.

Acting Career

Carey started her acting career in 1986 with a co-starring role in the action-crime film “Dangerously Close”, next to John Stockwell, and J. Eddie Peck. She continued with a minor role in the comedy film “Club Paradise” in 1986, starring Robin Williams and Peter O’Toole, while in 1987 she had the female lead in the action-adventure film “Down Twisted” in 1987, however, the film failed to make an impact, and her performance went completely unnoticed.

Rise to Prominence

After a few failed attempts to reach world fame, her hard work paid off when in 1989 she portrayed Bond girl Pam Bouvier in the film “License to Kill”, starring next to Timothy Dalton in his last film playing the MI6 agent, James Bond. The film didn’t fare well either critically or commercially, however, Carey’s performance was praised by critics, which certainly boosted her career, and going into the ‘90s, helped her to secure new roles. She played Kate in the horror mystery film “The Guardian”, while in 1993 she portrayed Maggie Baldwin in the romantic comedy film “Sleepless in Seattle” with Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan and Ros Malinger in the lead roles, with the film being nominated for two Academy Awards and receiving several others too. In 1995 she had a minor role in the Academy Award-winning romantic drama film “Leaving Las Vegas”, starring Nicolas Cage and Elisabeth Shue, and her next role was portraying Jamie Ross in the highly acclaimed crime-drama series “Law & Order”, appearing in nearly 50 episodes from 1996 to 2001, contributing significantly to her wealth.

The 2000s and Later Career

Following the start of the 2000s, Carey started slowly to retreat from the acting scene, though she still made a few notable appearances. In 2003 she was Joan Brock in the television film “More Than Meets the Eye” The Joan Brock Story”, while from 2006 to 2007 she was Christine Caseman in the critically-acclaimed TV drama series “Six Degrees”. In recent years, Carey starred in the comedy film “C Street” (2016) and appeared in a minor role in the TV series “Blue Bloods” in 2018.
