Native Texan Carly Capra was brought to my attention by my good friend Carlo Rodriguez, who’s had the pleasure of photographing Carly on several occasions. (The photo at left is from one of his shoots with her.) A trained dancer and former co-captain of the Cowtown Hotties bikini and promotions team, Carly has been modeling since she was very young and has been a promotional model for such names as Stanley tools, Miller Light, Heineken, and Bank of America. Not to mention she was also the Alien Bee Babe of the Month for April of 2012.
Carly’s still modeling but now focusing more on her acting career. One of her most noteworthy film credits to date is that of Dr. Elizabeth Craig in the 2011 indie horror film Psycho Killer Bloodbath. Her strong performance in that one, reminiscent of Camille Keaton in 1978’s I Spit On Your Grave, earned Carly the Best Actress award at the 2011 San Antonio Horrific Film Fest. Her most recent film, Billy “Bloody Bill” Pon’s gorefest Circus of the Dead, in which she plays “Cry-Baby,” is slated for release in May of next year.
CARLY CAPRA: I was born in Madrid, Spain. My father was in the Air Force. I’ve lived in Texas since I was a year old.
CARLY: No relation, unfortunately. But I did take the last name from him. I have Italian roots, so when I was looking for a stage name, I researched famous Italian names. He was an award-winning director so I thought maybe it could be good luck and it seemed to be the name people liked the most when I was throwing a few around.
CHRIS: I first noticed you from a bikini photo that was shared at Facebook by our mutual friend, Carlo Rodriguez. Since then, I’ve seen quite a few photos of you in many different bikinis. Do you have a pretty extensive collection of bikinis?
CARLY: Yes I do. I was a Cowtown Hottie for two years, which is a bikini team in Fort Worth. So I acquired quite a collection during that time.
CARLY: I did play when I was a kid, I had a red acoustic that was small and fit me perfect. I’m a little rusty these days. Definitely a turn on when someone can play well.
CARLY: I’ve had a good year! I am “Cry Baby” in Circus of the Dead by Billy Pon. I also appear in Degenerates, a post-apocalyptic movie, which is showing at the DOA Blood Bath Film Festival on October 20th. I just wrapped filming for Prey for Me by Remy St. Paul, where I’m a bow hunter. SoulCatcher by Greg Vestal is still in production, this is a paranormal based movie, I play Amy Woods. And my newest project is Nutty Buddiez by Cedric “Cnote” Buard. This is a comedy webseries that will be released on Youtube soon, I play Bitchy Betty. I’m excited for what the future holds! Thank you Chris!! Much Love!
