Basic Information

Character History

Caroline made her first appearance on Baywatch in the Season Four episode "Tentacles, Part 2". She came to Baywatch to announce to her sister, Stephanie Holden, that she was engaged to be married to an environmentalist named Frank Randall. Her joy was short lived however when an attempt was made on Frank's life. After Frank recovered, the two got married. Frank was unfaithful to her many times but she hadn't the courage to leave him.

Caroline later joined the Baywatch crew in the fifth season premiere with the news that she was divorcing Frank finally after he had once again cheated on her. She expressed interest in becoming a lifeguard again, something she had not done since high school. She shared an apartment with her sister and another lifeguard, C.J. Parker. Caroline later developed a romantic interest in hotshot fellow lifeguard, Australian ex-pat Logan Fowler. Logan proposed to her and she accepted, only to break off her engagement a few days later after seeing him have an affair with fellow lifeguard Neely Capshaw.

At Stephanie's wedding in Season Seven, Caroline and Logan decide to be friends. She plans a big wedding for Stephanie and her fiancé Tom, but the couple opt for a small wedding and get married on the beach. Caroline is the one who catches Stephanie's bouquet. However tragedy strikes when Stephanie is killed on her honeymoon. Caroline hears of her sister's death from Mitch. Caroline mourns Stephanie throughout the season and goes as far to believe that a stray dog possesses the reincarnated soul of her late sister. Caroline left for New York City after the end of Season Seven.

In Season Eight, Caroine returned in "Lifeguard Confidential", finding J.D. Darius sleeping in her bed (he opted to sleep in Stephanie's old room, but it was off limits to anyone). She had moved to New York to audition for a part in a TV soap opera titled Shannon's Hope, which she does not get. Caroline returns to work after six months, but new Baywatch lieutenant Taylor Walsh stations her at a part of the beach frequented mainly by mothers and their children. On her first day back, Caroline spots a shark in the water and quickly tells everyone to get out. However, a cameraman goes towards the shark to get a closer look. Taylor goes into the water to save him, but she is hit in the head and knocked out. The shark goes for Taylor, but Caroline saves her and the cameraman from the approaching shark. Caroline and J.D spend more time together and end up going sailing together, but the boat they are in overturns and J.D narrowly saves Caroline from the falling mast. The incident brings back memories of Stephanie's death and in tears Caroline is comforted by J.D. Later that day, an answering machine message from the audition for Shannon's Hope tells Caroline that she has got the part. J.D tries to convince her to stay but she decides to leave, telling him that this is her dream.

Caroline returns in Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, where she learns that her old boss Mitch Buchannon (who she though had been killed after a boat explosion in Hawaii in the Season Ten finale "The Killing Machine") is alive and plans to marry Allison Ford, a dead ringer for Caroline's now-deceased sister Stephanie. Learning from Neely that Allison is secretly in league with an old enemy of Mitch's, Mason Sato, Caroline and the rest of the old Baywatch crew try to stop the wedding.
