Strikingly beautiful and fiery blonde Tiffany Bolling may not have achieved the long-lasting stardom she deserved, but she nonetheless has remained a much-beloved cult favorite of 1970s B-movie buffs for her lively and impressive performances in a handful of enjoyably trashy drive-in flicks. Born in Santa Monica, California, as Tiffany Royce Kral, Bolling basically had show business in her blood: her father was singer/pianist Roy Kral and her mother was singer/comedienne Bettie Miller.
Tiffany attended Webster elementary school in Malibu. She began singing in coffee houses at age 16 and recorded an album for Canyon Records, scoring a minor hit single with the Vietnam protest song "Thank God the War is Over". Bolling's latter album "Tiffany" was a flop in its day, but has since become a much sought after collector's item.
She found greater success as an actress. She made her film debut at age 20 in an uncredited bit part as a model in the Frank Sinatra private eye picture "Tony Rome". More prominent parts in "Triangle" and "The Marriage of a Young Stockbroker" cemented her status as a most promising new talent. She did a nude pictorial for the April 1972 issue of "Playboy" magazine. Bolling secured her place as a bona-fide B-movie queen with a bunch of juicy starring parts: she's a sneaky, manipulative con artist femme fatale supreme in "Bonnie's Kids", a hotel lounge singer who's stalked by a crazed psycho in "Wicked, Wicked", the ruthless ringleader of a trio of desperate kidnappers in the terrific "The Candy Snatchers" and a stewardess who gets terrorized by deranged psychopath Andrew Prine in the splendidly sleazy "The Centerfold Girls". Bolling gave another fine performance as a gutsy entomologist in the hugely entertaining killer tarantula epic "Kingdom of the Spiders".
On television Bolling was a regular cast member of the short-lived TV series "The New People", which was a precursor to "Lost". Among the many TV programs Tiffany did guest spots on were "High Mountain Rangers", "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams", "Vega$", "Mod Squad", "Bonanza", "Mannix", "Man from Atlantis", "Barnaby Jones", "Charlie's Angels", "Electra Woman and Dyna Girl" and "The Sixth Sense". Alas, Bolling's career petered out in the 1980s, as such lackluster movies as "The Vals", "Love Scenes" and "Open House" all grimly confirm. Her last movie to date is "Visions". More recently Bolling has worked in both stage and film productions behind the scenes. She also teaches and dedicates herself to various humanitarian causes. Moreover, her daughter Seanie sang back-up vocals on the 1990 debut album of the Christian heavy metal band Holy Soldier.
