After being discovered by a producer while shopping in a supermarket in Waikiki, Tia appeared in a host of '80s b-movies. After relocating to California, she got her big break during a two year run (1985-87) on General Hospital. Later, she hit paydirt when she landed the female lead in Wayne's World, and starred opposite the Governator in the 1994 blockbuster True Lies. Carrere also sings, and won a Grammy in 2009 for Best Hawaiian Album. You know Hawaii's dope 'cause they've got their own Grammy category.
