Kari Samantha Wuhrer (born April 28, 1967) is an American actress and singer. Wuhrer is best known for her roles as Maggie Beckett in the Sci-fi television series Sliders and as Sheriff Samantha Parker in the Sci-fi comedy film Eight Legged Freaks.

Biography

Kari a commencé à étudier la comédie à l’âge de 13 ans, puis est partie pour New York pour passer des auditions. Elle a joué à ses débuts dans des publicités ainsi qu’au théâtre.

Elle s’est enfuie de chez elle étant adolescente pour aller chanter dans les bars. Elle a étudié les arts dramatiques à l’université de New York et à la Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts à Londres.


Après avoir joué dans une multitude de séries entre 1990 et 1997, de Mariés, deux enfants à Beverly Hills - mais également des longs-métrages passés relativement inaperçus, elle est choisie pour intégrer le casting de la série de science-fiction Sliders : Les Mondes parallèles. Elle prête ses traits au capitaine Maggie Beckett dans les neuf derniers épisodes de la troisième saison, et intègre le casting régulier dès la saison suivante, suppléant au départ de John Rhys-Davies, interprète du personnage du Professeur Maximilian Arturo.



La série s'arrête soudainement au début de l'année 2000, après d'autres changements de distribution et d'orientation créative. Parallèlement, l'actrice a continué à jouer au cinéma - dans la comédie The Undertaker's Wedding et le film d'action Anaconda (1997) ou les romances pour ados D'amour et de courage et une fiancée pour deux (1998), qui ne rencontrent pas un grand succès. A la fin de Sliders, elle joue la militaire Tanya dans les cinématiques du jeu vidéo Alerte Rouge 2 et enchaîne les projets de seconde zone, dont certains sortent directement en vidéo, dont des films érotiques.

En 2005, elle finit par revenir à la télévision : après une dizaine d'épisodes du soap opera Hôpital Central, elle participe à un épisode des Experts : Miami(2006), Stargate : Atlantis (2008), trois de Lincoln Heights (2007-2008), de Leverage (2010). Il s'agit de sa dernière apparition télévisuelle avant un bout de temps. Elle se spécialise en effet dans le doublage de séries d'animation et de jeux vidéo.

Elle ne reviendra à l'écran que pour deux téléfilms fantastiques de série Z : Alien Tornado et Sharknado 2.

In an alternate universe where evil usually triumphs over good and where the roles of the heroes and villains are reversed from their counterparts in the mainstream DC Universe, heroic analogues of Lex Luthor and the Joker (called the Jester) are attempting to steal a device, the "Quantum Trigger", from the headquarters of the Crime Syndicate. The pair trip an alarm but manage to secure the device. The Jester sacrifices himself to allow Luthor to escape and kills J'edd J'arkus and Angelique (alternate versions of Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl respectively) with a radioactive bomb. Luthor is confronted by the remaining Syndicate members (Ultraman, Superwoman, Power Ring, Johnny Quick and Owlman) but escapes to the Earth of the heroic Justice League by activating a dimensional travel device.

In Bucharest, Amy tracks down the return address of the VHS and discovers the corpse of a girl, named Marla, who had sent the tape holding a puzzle box, the Lament Configuration. Amy returns to her hotel and solves the puzzle of opening the box which causes Pinhead (Doug Bradley) to appear and says to Amy 'Don't think for a moment that you are not in danger'. She then visits some of the Bucharest subculture on a train where she meets Joey, who warns her about her the Deaders and notices that Amy has a 'self destructive thing'.

The film begins with a voice-over by "Barek" who refers to a pagan legend. According to the saga Odin was spurned by Brunhilda. The irate pagan god chained her to an altar in Asgard, surrounded by a ring of eternal fire. He decreed that only a pure-hearted man could overcome the supernatural flames and save the alluring valkyrie. Her saviour's fate should then be connected to hers forever. As Barek explains, he and his only brother learned about this as little boys and craved more and more to rescue the legendary beauty as they grew older.
