Hope Marie Carlton


Extremely cute, slim and shapely blonde sprite Hope Marie Carlton was born Hope Marie Rizzitano on March 3, 1966 in Riverhead, New York. Carlton began modeling at age thirteen (her mother was a professional model). Hope was the Playmate of the Month in the July, 1985 issue of "Playboy" magazine. She went on to appear in several "Playboy" videos and a bunch of "Playboy" special edition publications. Carlton portrayed feisty federal drug enforcement agent, "Taryn", in three enjoyably low-brow, low-budget action pictures for director Andy Sidaris: Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987), Picasso Trigger (1988) and Savage Beach (1989). Moreover, Hope acted in a handful of B-flicks and even a few horror movies (she has a memorably sexy cameo in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)). Among the TV shows, she made guest appearances on, are The A-Team (1983), Married with Children (1987), L.A. Law (1986), Charles in Charge (1984), Quantum Leap (1989) and Baywatch (1989). Carlton owned and operated the resort, the "Sorrel River Ranch", with her one-time husband, Rob Levin, in Moab, Utah. Hope and Levin had a daughter, prior to divorcing in 2005. Hope Marie Carlton now lives in Colorado.
