Happy Birthday: Tia Carrere

Born: January 2, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

I slipped at a bus stop; I went one way and my hair went the other. That was the end of my wig.

When I first came here, Hollywood was very closed-minded.

The kids all knew me from Wayne’s World. The grown-ups knew me after True Lies.

I play a female Indiana Jones, a professor who hunts down precious objects, like a bowl that belonged to the Buddha. They tailored the role to me: I wanted to be smart, funny, and to kick some ass.
