Tiffany Bolling (born Tiffany Royce Kral; born February 6, 1947) is a retired American actress, model and singer, best known for her appearances in cult movies.

Early years

Bolling was raised in Santa Monica, California.[2] Her father was singer/pianist Roy Kral[3] and her mother was singer/comedian Bettie Miller.

Singer Irene Kral was her aunt.[3]

Career

Bolling guest-starred on a number of television series, including The Sixth Sense (as Damaris in "Witch, Witch, Burning Bright"), Ironside ("The Wrong Time, the Wrong Place", 1970, as a film actress who falls in love with Don Galloway's Sgt. Ed Brown), and Marcus Welby, M.D. (as a leprosy victim engaged to Don Galloway's character, shot the same year as the "Ironside" episode). She had roles in Charlie's Angels, Bonanza, Mannix, Barnaby Jones, Vega$ and The New People as well. She appeared in the sci-fi show Man from Atlantis and children's program Electra Woman and Dyna Girl.

In April 1972, she did a pictorial for Playboy magazine. She later called that exposure "the worst experience of my life" and said she was not paid a fee.[4] The Playboy photographs led to her appearing in exploitation films, including Bonnie's Kids (1972), The Candy Snatchers (1973), The Centerfold Girls (1974),[4] and a bit part as Kate in the "Woman in the Wilderness" episode of The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams (1977). She was dismissive of The Candy Snatchers and took the role solely for the money, elaborating "I was doing cocaine...and I didn't really know what I was doing, and I was very angry about the way that my career had gone in the industry... the opportunities that I had and had not been given... The hardest thing for me, as I look back on it, was I had done [The New People], and so I had a lot of young people who really respected me and... revered me as something of a hero, and then I came out with this stupid Candy Snatchers movie... it was a horrendous experience".[5]

Family

Twice divorced, she has been married to production administrator Richard G. Casares since October 8, 1983; the couple have one child, a daughter.
