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 never got paid for it. [4] The Playboy 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). Despite The Candy Snatchers in particular garnering a cult following, she was dismissive of the film and took the role 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 has one child, a daughter.
