|In 1990 Renee Parent arrived on screen as Winston's (Tim
Noah) attractive but unattainable high school dream girl (as seen
above) in the movie
Daredreamer. As the over-conceited Cindy Spider, her devilish prank on
Winston provided the prelude to her first music video performance - in a
fun song titled Cloud 9 (produced and performed by Tim Noah). Two
years later she resurfaced as Mary, whose role generated the haunting
mystery in Richard Marx's Hazard music video (1992). Ten years later,
questions surrounding Mary's tragic fate remains a topic of ongoing debate.
In 1993 Renee had a bit part in NBC's SeaQuest in the episode titled "seaWest" where she was cast as one of the beauties in an underwater mining colony. Renee made several appearances in 1994. She played Claudette Wells, a prominent person in the Rolling Stones organization in Beverly Hills 90210. The 5th season episode was titled "Rock of Ages." She also guest starred in the sitcom The Good Life playing the attractive woman in the episode "Maureen's Play." As well, she was cast as the "2nd stunning beauty" in the '94 movie Cityscrapes: Los Angeles - a film we've viewed twice now and have no clue what it's about. All we know is, like "Hazard," it was filmed in black & white. In 1996 she played Russell Crowe's dying wife in the action movie No Way Back. From bubbly to melancholy, this low-key actress has accomplished a variety of roles.
