Career

Born at Chatham, New York, DeBell began her career as a fashion model with Ford Models. She later moved into acting, debuting as the star of an X-rated film version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

She was on the April 1976 cover of Playboy, photographed by Suze Randall. She also appeared in the August 1976 Helmut Newton pictorial "200 Motels, or How I Spent My Summer Vacation",[1] from which 11 original prints were sold at auctions of Playboy archives by Butterfields in 2002 for $21,075,[2][3] and three by Christies in December 2003 for $26,290.[4]

Subsequently, she moved to mainstream film and television. Her most prominent film roles included playing A.L., a camp counselor, alongside Bill Murray in the comedy Meatballs and Jackie Chan's girlfriend in The Big Brawl. She appeared in a number of television pilots through the 1980s, individual episodes and series, including The Young and the Restless, B. J. and the Bear and Night Court. Kristine then retired from acting, apparently to start a family (her Twitter profile indicates she is a mother).

According to her Twitter feed (username 'kristinedebell'), she is back in Los Angeles again working as an actress, as of summer 2010. Her May 9, 2012 tweet indicates she just completed a film called "A Halloween Puppy" with Eric Roberts. The IMDB page does not (yet) list her as a part of the cast, however other cast members include Susan Olsen (Brady Bunch).
