Biography

Karen Russell was a buxom, shapely, and voluptuous brunette actress and dancer who popped up with pleasing regularity in a handful of entertainingly trashy low-budget straight-to-video exploitation pictures made throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Karen made a memorable film debut as nasty street gang moll Chula in the brutal urban action opus Tenement. She was quite funny and appealing as the ditsy Shawnee in the crudely amusing Vice Academy. Russells other noteworthy parts include sweet, but troubled Mafia princess Amy in the gloriously outrageous Murder Weapon, motorcycle mama Candy in Easy Wheels, naive hooker Fran in the hugely enjoyable The Banker, cop Francesco Quinns bitter estranged ex-wife Isabella in Murder Blues, and lusty groupie Michelle in Shock Em Dead. Moreover, Karen appeared in small roles as a dancer in the mainstream features Dick Tracy, Havana, Mobsters, and Bugsy. After calling it a day as an actress in the mid-1990s, Russell went on to become a yoga teacher and founder of her own business Yoga Groove based in North Hollywood, California.
