Early years

Aames was born in Pierre, South Dakota. She acted in high school and attended the University of South Dakota before coming to Hollywood in 1978. She trained at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and Harvey Lembeck's Comedy Workshop.

Career

Angela Aames's first film role was as Little Bo Peep in the adult film Fairy Tales (1979). The same year, she played Linda "Boom-Boom" Bangs in the movie H.O.T.S. (1979).

Aames made her mark in Hollywood during the late 1970s and 1980s while appearing in comedies and exploitation films. Most of these appearances were bit parts.

Her film roles included Scarface (1983), Bachelor Party (1984), Basic Training (1985), and Chopping Mall (1986). She did guest appearances on several television shows, including Cheers (1982), and Night Court (1984).

In 1983, she appeared on Cinemax's Likely Stories, playing an 80-foot tall giantess.

Aames was given one of the lead supporting roles in the 1983 fantasy adventure The Lost Empire, directed by Jim Wynorski.[1] As Heather, Aames was able to show her range of skills as an actor and comedienne, and even as action heroine in a memorable prison fight with Angelique Pettyjohn.

In the opening credits of Bachelor Party (1984), Aames appears in a photography studio as a buxom mother with a deep cleavage having baby pictures taken with her child, along with the bachelors.

She appeared in a recurring role as Penny, a fitness instructor, on The Dom DeLuise Show (1987).

Personal life

Angela Aames was found dead at a friend's home in West Hills in the San Fernando Valley on November 27, 1988. The coroner later ruled that her death was a result of a deterioration of the heart muscle, probably caused by a virus, although one of her former co-stars thought otherwise.[1]

"The aftermath of "The Lost Empire" is even eerier than the film, because a startling number of the picture's principals have since died. "Angela Aames died of a heart attack reportedly caused by alcohol and cocaine (speed balls) [in 1988]. She was a beautiful girl, and very nice. I think she was troubled because she was becoming popular for something she didn't consider valuable, her sex appeal. She didn't appreciate herself enough.""
