Carolyne H. Barry (born Carole Stuppler, AKA Carole Shelyne) was an American dancer, actress, and dance instructor.
After years of training, at nineteen, Barry started her dance career at the Melodyland Summer Stock Theatre in Anaheim, California. She went on to be a featured dancer, for two years, as the “Girl with the Horn-rimmed glasses” on the ABC television show Shindig!. (For this show she recorded the hit record “The Girl with The Horn-rimmed Glasses” which became an international bestseller.)
Barry performed in over 400 national television commercials, thirty-two theatrical productions and approximately one hundred television shows and movies, including a recurring role in Here Come the Brides, appearances in the classic Star Trek episode "Arena" and the Next Generation episode "Home Soil".
From 1983-1989, Barry founded and ran the Professional Artist Group, which was the largest training and casting facility in the country. During this time she created formats for casting director and director workshops which have gone on to be a staple for the training and marketing of many actors in major markets.
Since 1982, The Carolyne Barry Workshops have been one of the most successful independent full training programs in Hollywood. Barry trained thousands of professional actors. Recommended by agents, casting directors, and former students, she was recognized as one of the top commercial audition teachers. In 2009, she was the winner of Backstage West's Favorite Commercial Teacher in Los Angeles.
Barry was featured as a teaching authority in The Hollywood Reporter, L.A. Reader, The Examiner, as well as on CNN, KHJ (AM), KTTV and numerous TV and Radio talk shows throughout the country. In 2008, Barry wrote the Commercial Break column for Backstage West.
