Tina Louise Biography
Tina Louise started acting on Broadway at the tender age of 18 in 1952 and has since been all around the showbiz circuit as an actress and a singer but was not recognized to be such because she was more to be known as a mens magazine hot staple cover-girl which was then in its early publication.
It was said that major stars, conscious of their dignities avoided these publications so the editors concentrated on sexy ambitious young women who needed publicities such as Hollywood starlets, night-club singers and Broadway hopefuls which were all but the hot Tina Louise was about then.
Her oozing sex appeal and legendary beauty have had more sales in magazines than those that had Marilyn Monroe, Sophie Loren and Elizabeth Taylor on cover. But that did not help shoot up her career as a big star like the ones mentioned. In 1958, Tina Louise was finally invited to enter the then sleepy industry of Hollywood. She had approximately made two dozens or more films, both in the US and Europe but was highly recognized in television as Ginger in Gilligans Island. She also has recorded several albums and done recognizable TV ads but said to have enjoyed working in New York, Paris, and Rome than in Hollywood.
In the late 1960s Tina Louise was married but was divorced in 1970 to TV talk-show host Les Crane, the famous voice in Max Erhmanns poem Desiderata, which was said to have been a hippie anthem back then. They had one daughter by the name of Caprice, who grew up to be working in the same field of films and showbiz as a writer and became a former MTV executive.
At present, Tina Louise continues to work regularly in films and television. She was said to have found outside interests, by setting up a health care company and working as a volunteer reading teacher in New York.
