American film, theater, and television actress who became popular through her participation in the films of her first husband, John Carpenter.
Adrienne Jo Barbeau was born June 11, 1945 in Sacramento, California.
Her expressive looks (she had Armenian and French ancestry blood in her) jump-started her career. In New York City, she enjoyed great popularity when she performed striptease in nightclubs. Then in 1968 her data came in handy on Broadway, where Adrienne soon proved that she has not only seductive forms, but also an acting talent.
