Not only did this decade bless us with bell-bottom pants and the famous tie dye, but the ’70s also marked the start of a new era in over-the-top movements, experimentation, and of course, new Hollywood superstars. As the new decade ushered in new ideas, film producers started experimenting with more women taking up lead roles.

When you get your big break alongside John Travolta, everything just clicks. In 1977, Karen landed a major role in the iconic Saturday night fever, a film considered as one of the best film classics of all time. With Hollywood taking note of the talented Karen, she took up roles in TV shows including, Law and Order, Six Degrees, and The Sopranos. Years later, with her prime days well behind her, Karen took a break from the screens and came back as a musician, releasing three studio albums, Used to Love You Madly, Hot Moonlight!, and The Dance of the Deadly’s. These days, Karen is mostly seen in New York stage productions.
