Film & Televison

Known for her roles in television and film; notably, Madam Secretary, Mannequin, Flamingo Kid, The Rapture, Sex & the City, My Wife and Kids, Angel and Scrubs.

Her first feature film was in the 1981 horror film Piranha II: The Spawning. Later on in the 1980s, she appeared in the comedy film The Flamingo Kid, her most well known film role came in 1987 as Roxie Shield in the cult comedy film Mannequin. She later also appeared in films such as the 1990 comedy The Shrimp on the Barbie, the 1991 comedy If Looks Could Kill and cult fim The Rapture, in the same year. Carole had guest appearances in television shows such as The A-Team, Star Trek: Voyager, Sex and The City and Angel. Most recently, Davis appeared in Going the Distance.

Early 80’s, NYC: My friend was going on an audition for the role of an Italian opera singer. I was in college and singing in nightclubs at the time. Having spent my summers in Italy growing up, I spoke fluent Italian and being a singer, my friend asked me to coach her on the singing and the Italian accent for the role. The day of the audition, she asked me to accompany her for moral support. So we went to the seedy casting director’s office downtown and she flubbed the audition. The director barged out of the office, pointed at me and said, “You! Do you speak Italian? Do you sing?” I looked at my friend and she said, “Go ahead, I messed it up and I’d rather you got it than anyone else.” A week later, I was shooting a movie in Berlin and had a fat wire transfer in my bank account.

I did Piranha with James Cameron right after that in Jamaica. I got eaten by flying fish and at the end, hilariously, you see my skeleton in a blue bikini at the bottom of Grand Cayman. Then I was cast as Joyce Brody in the Gary Marshall comedy, Flamingo Kid, opposite Matt Dillon. I played Richard Crenna’s and Jessica Walter’s bratty, loud-mouth daughter who hangs out with boys in the back of cars. I was working with Prince at that time, and he wanted to sign me to do a movie with him. But the role was contingent on me signing a 5-album deal under the band name “Vagina“ so my agents turned down the lead in Purple Rain (biggest mistake ever)!

Amalita Amalfi in Sex and the City is still one of my favorite roles. The chance to play an Italian pimp floating through scenes, laughing in all of my personal evening clothes was beyond fabulous. Director Susan Seidleman unleashed me on set and BAM! Playing Amalita was like driving a Ferrari on the edge of the cliffs on the Amalfi coast— exhilarating. My other fave role was a total badass, the recurring role of the French foreign minister on Madam Secretary. It was challenging to play such a powerful woman making decisions that affect geo-politics on the world stage. Plus I got to copy my mother’s French accent. That was the first character I played that I wanted to actually be in my real life.
