Michele Carey (born 26 February 1943, Annapolis, Maryland) is an American actress. She was also a child piano prodigy and a model. Touted as a discovery of Howard Hawks, she made her film debut in Hawks' El Dorado (1966), starring John Wayne and Robert Mitchum. She went on to co-star in the Elvis Presley musical Live a Little, Love a Little (1968), The Sweet Ride (1968), and played an anachronistically miniskirted Indian girl in Frank Sinatra's Dirty Dingus Magee (1970). That same year she also made Five Savage Men with Henry Silva and Keenan Wynn.

On television she did guest-starring roles on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1966), Mission Impossible (1969), It Takes a Thief (1970), and three episodes of The Wild Wild West ("The Night of the Feathered Fury", 1967 and the two-part "The Night of the Winged Terror" 1969) and held the title role in the Jan 17, 1972 episode of Gunsmoke entitled Tara. She also appeared in the second The Six Million Dollar Man pilot film (1973) and an episode of Starsky and Hutch. She provided the recurring female computer voice in A Man Called Sloane (1979-80), starring Robert Conrad.

Fading from view in the late '70s, Carey staged a brief comeback in the mid-'80s in such films as In the Shadow of Kilimanjaro (1986). She also appeared as Crystal in a 1982 episode of the television series The Fall Guy.

Carey married Fred G. Strebel in 1999, and resided with him in Hillsborough and Rancho Mirage. Strebel died on December 28, 2011.[1]
